Take the song list today. A larger list was assembled, more-or-less chosen at random. Then, from that I carved this sequence, but on the criteria of sound alone.
And then, I needed a title for this episode, and turned to the titles of songs for my answer. It came, clearly and swiftly: this is a journey of a champion, created out of the imbalance of a fantasy world, encountering a fearsome foe. Then, seeking money and fame, finds a peaceful way, and seeks out ancient wisdom.
Or at least, that’s what I got out of it. Consider it a story prompt. What’s your story?
