This one’s called Twisted Trees, and it’s about creating a character that’s based on a certain type of tree.
A few writers have written vegetarian characters in Fantasy – the Ents of the Lord of the Rings spring quickly to mind.
Or how about the Ellcrys in Terry Brooks’ Shannara series, that springs from a living being?
So today I’m wondering about writing vegetation – trees, bushes, heck, even fungus – as fully realized characters. Have you done it? Have you read it? And can a tree be gay?
