Since day 6 was all about imaginary things, I tried to create boards depicting things that inspired my imagined beings or things. Read on to see what I came up with!
#writingthesenseschallenge Day 6 - Inspiring Mind/Thoughts
The above photo collage represents some of the things that inspire me when writing about the Genzet Clan. You may remember from my 'Introducing the Clans' series, the Genzet are a people who are truly different. They have slightly pointed ears and small fangs. Their hair, eyes, and skin are the same color but their colors range the spectrum. And piercings are a way for them to mark milestones in their lives, usually starting with their pilgrimage to Gild'n Mountain Shrine where they'll choose the career path that they are best suited for.
This is a collection of things that inspired the Drakmaugh, denizen of the underground tunnels in book 2. It has a bear-like body and paws. Tentacles ring the paws and make up its tail. It has no eyes, keen hearing and sense of smell, and a toothy maw. To entice its prey, it whines like a small animal in distress. Cheese in the trap was the only open source photo I could find that fit the bill for that last element.
#FantasyWIPJanuary Writing Challenge
Yes. I took on another challenge. <sigh> I know. You're probably thinking about all those times I've talked about being tired and overloaded. I know. I do it to myself. But these challenges help me so much, I figure the time I spend on them is worth it.
So here are my responses for the first six days of this challenge, co-hosted by @kierawriteswattus (who I cannot link to), @sydney_hawthorn, and @andiebarrauthor.
I won't go into a whole lot of detail on these since there are so many but I'll give a brief overview of my responses that goes into a little more detail, especially for the last two answers.
If you read this far, thank you so much for your interest in what I have to say and in my work process. If you are following my facebook author page, know that I'm considering dropping facebook from my life. It's far too time consuming and while it's great for connections, I find I do much better on forums focused totally on writing. I'll definitely keep you posted so you'll know when to expect my absence from there, probably February 1st or close to that date.
Thanks again for stopping by and reading and for your continued support. I truly appreciate it!
