What is adventure? Adventure is usually described as an undertaking, which involves danger. An event that involves a venture that requires overcoming a challenge. So, how does an adventure relate to literature or fiction?
In literature, the protagonist takes on a heroic quest, facing grave dangers. Whatever the task at hand, the protagonist must prove his or her worthiness. If the hero fails, dire consequences may befall the protagonist. In my soon to be released story, Dot and Scribble Fall into Adventure, two characters set out on an adventure to get a magic key. Here’s an excerpt.

“Come on, let’s go on an adventure—just you and me.”

“Who’s gonna take care of Boon?” Dot replied. “Besides, it’s too dangerous.”

Scribble jumped up and down. “You know the way to the castle, don’t you?”

“Of course I know the way. All we do is follow that path. I also know the legend of the Key to Adventure. I don’t believe a word of it.”

Boon was jumping and splashing in the water.

“Getting the key is not worth the risk. It’s only a legend. A key worth all the wealth in the kingdom? Please.”
