And almost one year later...
... I decide to go back to continue writing my novel. Not long ago, I put a bit of thought again into the idea of writing a book, and decided that if I am ever going to accomplish one of my personal goals, my novel would be the best chance to do so. Plus, writing gives my mind ways to create things in ways I could never accomplish by drawing.
So here I am again. My apologies for having abandoned this.
I don't know if anybody is still following this blog. But for any who still do, and any new readers, I'll use this space to post any news on this project, as well as bits of information and/or trivia, and whatever else I see fit to share. But there will be no mention of any mayor scenes in the story, as it would not be a good idea to reveal any new and important details of the book's plot.
So what's new? The whole project has been revised. Rather than one single volume made of three separate "books", it will be two separate books. Not aiming for a trilogy here. I know stories are basically made of beginning, middle and end, but I'm feeling a bit of a rebel here. Even when I like odd numbers for some weird reason.
Anyhoo... what else? Ah, yes. Oviraptors! They are the newest addition to my little family of archosaurs. I have yet to come up with a cool name for their species, as I am not using the same naming nomenclatures as our beloved Earth dinosaurs. And they will be omnivores, to add another element to my little universe. Should be fun!
Two secondary characters have gone big changes. The parasaurolophus named Zarod is gone, and is now replaced with a carnotaur named Dherek. This character will be developed more, and very early in the story he will be shown to have something in common with Grell. Meanwhile, the female styracosaur named Vak'zhoria will be changed to a female carnotaur. Yes, you probably can see where this will be going. Hey, if the Domains are thriving and expanding, it's because their species are breeding. So there has to be far more "same sex, same species" unfings going on than all others combined. And the vast majority of them are not hornballs. It's just that those are the ones who make the most noise. But don't worry, folks; I have a few ways planned that hopefully will make these two characters interesting. ;)
