And the ending to the dark waters story arc. The lesson is: sea monsters are scary.
I mean, how would you fight creatures underwater? Swords don’t cut that well if you’re fighting in water, and you’d need missiles and a submarine to chase those things. Me? I’d rather stay on land where I can run away.
I don’t like the deep ocean. It’s not a fun place to be. If you’ve ever swum out for shore and looked down, you know what I’m talking about. Who knows what lurks in the abyssal waters? Nightmares, I’m certain.
More on Pirate’s Story! I’ve completely finished all the editing of the book, which meant reading around 240 pages in a few days. That means all I need to do is convert the book to Kindle format, upload it on Amazon and get details like the book description done. It looks like we’ll hit the Friday deadline after all!
In the meantime, let me share something special. In the first chapter of City of Mists, Pirate sings a song at sea. Since WordPress doesn’t allow me to simply paste music onto the blog, I’ll link you to that song on Youtube.
And finally, I feel it would be disingenuous (see? I can use big words!) to ask you to buy or recommend my book without trying it first. Thus, I’ll be making the first chapter of City of Mists free to read when I put it up on Amazon. Now I just have to figure out how.
Another mythological monster I don’t think exists in real world. Personally, I never liked sock puppets, and being chased by this one would not be fun. It also sort of looks like Barney, and I never liked Barney.
Here’s a word for the day: colossus. It means big things. I remember reading about the legendary bronze statue that protected the city of Crete from invaders in Greek legend. How does Pirate play into this? I imagine she’d be great at giving directions to lost stick-sailors.
