Time Travel Usage In A Story Or Novel Doesn’t Always “HAVE” To Have A Scientific Theory Nor Magical Plot.

Applying the agenda of Time Travel to a story doesn’t always have to be sci-fi nor magical orientated. This is not a craved in stone rule.

There existed many writings and legends about Time Traveling predating sci-fi by thousands of years.

The ancients had many stories about Time Travel. I’m aware that people who read sci-fi appreciate the way authors apply their scientific knowledge. Some may even think a lack of scientific details undermine the credibility of the story.  If the science route is the direction the story is based upon, yes, scientific facts and imaginative creations need to be included but if not then adding them will make the story weird.

There’s another route of apply time travel to the story is coming. It’s called metaphysical.  Then there’s no way the absence of wormhole, quantum leaps and other scientific explanations undermine the story.

One concept is new. I haven’t read any ancient accounts speaking of traveling to the future. They didn’t believe one could travel into the future. Many believed certain people like seers, prophet, and oracles could see the future but not travel to it.

No,  this is not considered magic. It considered a divine ability.

It’s the belief of time is divided by dimensions and other realms exist and there are some people with the ability to travel through them.

When  writing about an ability of a character try and make yours unique. Research and learn what has been written about before that’s most likely forgotten. Reinvent it and introduce it to the world. 🙂

She took classes in creative writing in college, specializing in ancient myths and legends. and later at a local community center while living in Chicago. In college she won the national contest to verbally list every country in the world, it's capital and ingenious language. Her works are mainly horror, fantasy, extreme, and sci-fi as well as, as some may says, "the truly strange predicament and puzzling." Books that I've written are "Clash with the Immortals, and eleven others which are part of the "Unholy Pursuit saga,". She has been working on the Chronicles since 2007. She wished to complete them all before introducing them to public so the readers wouldn't have to for the continuation to be written. The ideas of the book come from classic literature such as whose work greatly influence the world world such as Homer, Sophocles, Herodotus, Euripides, Socrates, Hippocrates, Aristophanes, Plato, Aristotle and many more. The "Book of Enoch" influenced the usage of Azazael as a main character and love interest. I created the primary main character from the Chronicle of Saints. I wanted to show them as real flesh and blood with thoughts, desires and yearning as any human. Not as they are so often depicted. So I created one of my own to show her as a real human that everyone can relate to.

    I find your metaphysical concept different and intriguing.

    I think the setting of time travel can be whatever an author can imagine. The strictly sci-fi plot is so passé. No longer fashionable; out of date.

    The sci-fi plot of time travel has grown stale after a 100 years. Readers are looking for a new way of time travel. That’s what’s a attracting readers with your characters. They aren’t all witches and warlocks. Thanks god, readers are getting tired of the witches and warlocks too. I wouldn’t exactly call Nikola a warlock. I don’t know what he turned into but he was once a good person. The characters are new and impromptu because they are more power than any witch or warlock.


    • Thanks for your input. I didn’t want to follow the same format in creating the characters’ abilities. I wanted to try something new. I’m glad you like it. Read on. You’ll learn what Nikola is. 🙂 Yes, he was once a good person.

    You describe Ana as a Time Walker not a Time Traveler. What’s the difference between the two?


    • A Time Traveler lands at a certain designation. Let’s say he is aiming for the 1800’s. Well that’s where he will exit the spirit world. Whereas according to an older definition a Time Walker is one with the ability to roams time lines at a far greater extension than a Time Traveler. If they wish to, they can walk the lineage of time far enough back to see many things. they can go as far back as earth’s early existence.
