Hey there I’ve been thinking about adding in-world quotes to the top of my chapters, and I was wondering what you all thought about that.
In the book, the MC owns a couple of books, including a children’s book about the monsters in this world and her professor’s notes about magic. The quotes I was thinking of including would “come” from these books and would be little world building tidbits. Perhaps a reminder about how the magic system works, a myth revolving around the origin of monsters in this world, etc. Something short and fun (maybe 1-2 lines) that would lead into the chapter, but also something not necessary to read to understand the book. Just little fun extras. I’m imagining it almost like the fun facts that game developers add to the loading screens.
For audience, I’m thinking this is going to be a middle-grade / YA book, so it’d be targeted more at younger readers. I feel like I would have really enjoyed it back in middle school myself, but I’m not sure if that’s the case for other people.
Would you find this interesting? I’m not sure if I would write them on the chapter itself or create an image to put in the multimedia header - which one would you prefer as a reader?
