The second week of June comes to an end and I'm doing my best to keep up with these awesome challenges. In spite of life being busy in different ways and in different time slots, I'm doing the victory dance (in my mind of course) over the fact that I've kept up this far. Read on to see my responses for this week's round of challenge prompts.
#AuthorsChallenge2019 June Edition : Days 10 -13
#FantasyWIPJune Writing Challenge Days 10 - 13
#TenThingsChallenge for Writers: Days 10 - 13
#WorldBuildingQuest Challenge Days 10 - 13
Day 10 - Natural Predators - Animals factor into this story because my characters are traveling all over Genzet and parts of Bot'ha. But keeping track of them without my glossary is impossible. They don't play very strong roles. I found these two awesome art pieces on Pixabay. Each photo is linked to the artists Pixabay profile so you can check out their other awesome pieces.
I've been calling a year a sun-cycle since I started writing this series and I really wasn't happy with that. For one, it's long...easy to say, but long. Besides, it didn't really have much connection to my Y'Dahnndrya. So I took the first few letters from each of the suns' names and added 'rik' on the end. Fun with letters! So a sun-cycle will now be called a 'tsimirik'. Just smoosh the 'ts' together as you would when saying "Tsar" and remember that 'i' has the long sound of 'ee'. I should probably upload a downloadable calendar and pronunciation guide for you guys... I'll get on that as soon as I can. I have to update my existing documents.
Thank you so much for following along! I hope you found these entertaining. :)
