Visual Reference Points For Omalas
Hi there. The beautiful city which forms the title of my novella, the city of Omalas, is a big, grand place, and I wanted it to have a certain feel. In my mind’s eye it appeared to me as something a bit like the city of Naboo in Star Wars, and also Rome. These pics below made great visual reference points when editing my first draft, as I realised I needed to describe the city in greater detail to help my readers envisage it.
These images get across the kind of vastness and majesty I want my city to be endowed with. Omalas is an ancient, beautiful city which houses an old, old secret within its bowels — I’m still working on editing the first draft but I hope soon to get a sample chapter up on here. I look forward to you reading it, future fans!
