Here's a not-so-funny kind of irony. Yesterday and the day before, our May Lit Writ Challenge was about the antagonist(s) in our WIPs. Today, our internet receiver box thingy would be the antagonist. Our internet works through cell towers and it can be a real headache. If many people are on the same tower, I can't work efficiently at all if I need to be online. My mother once contacted AT&T to ask what it would take to get them to fix up our area for normal internet. They told her $10,000 and said there weren't enough people in our area to make it worth their wile. So this is a plea to Verizon to snatch up the market out here in our area. I'm quite certain our community has grown enough in the last few years to warrant a good trade for any internet company to make a hefty profit. And honestly, I'm tired of getting notices like this:
Did you notice it's just over 1MB? *sigh* OK. Enough complaining. On with the challenges! Two of these photos will be repeats. I've noticed that in many of these challenges, there are at least two or three similar questions.
#MayLitWrit Day 6 - The Character You Most Relate To
I find I relate better to Master Tor Gervell or Guardian Zim Haya Ne. (ZEEM hah-yah neh') Both are somewhat quiet. Both have accepted their calling and work daily to do it well. Both are older and have seen and experienced many things the younger characters haven't.
#MayLitWrit Day 7 - Introduce Your Antagonist(s)
Over Land & Under Stone has more antagonists than I have scenes for right now. It's kinda crazy, actually.
#MayLitWrit Day 8 - Antagonist Aesthetic
The Sekot Mundei are more like bogies in this book. They sort of hover at the edge of knowledge for now. I'd like to flesh out the religion a little more before getting them more deeply involved in a story. So right now I'm working on the whole pantheon and when I get that done, I'll figure out the particular worship practices. It's been fun figuring this out but I can't spend as much time on it as I would like.
And as a disclaimer, I did not choose albino models because I dislike them. I think they're beautiful and perfect representations of what a god or goddess should look like: ethereal, other-worldly, beautifully unique.
Also, if anyone knows the name of the male model by the deer, that would really help. I'd like to add one of his photos to my Pinterest board but I can't remember his name. Those amber eyes, though... (PS, I'm notorious for forgetting names, anyway, so please don't be offended Mr. Amber.)
