Eighty-three-year-old Edna Fisher hates the nursing home, with its forced activities, boredom, and staff members' habit of treating the old folks like children. So when a wizard tells her she's the Chosen One - destined to defeat Redway, the sorcerer who's been attacking cities and killing Knights - she leaps at the chance to leave.(Figuratively. Actually leaping is hard on an old lady's hips.)Armed only with her knitting needles and her favorite orderly, Edna sets out to find the Sword of Destiny and journey to the land of the dragons to find Redway. Along the way she collects a grumpy teenage girl, a strong-willed flying carpet, and an elf with a dangerous secret. She'll encounter dragons, witches, technology, and bad directions...but when she finally meets Redway, she'll discover something she never expected.
So I already have plans to change a lot in the second draft, since somebody didn't outline and made stuff up on the fly *coughcough* ahem.
