Feeling slightly burned out from my original LoD title, so I decided to work on the next project to keep my thoughts fresh.
The next installment in the LoD series will follow Sol’s grandfather and lead up to the original LoD story line.
I’m one of those jerks.
I’m writing the story out of order.
Khai Tochia concept
[I must be on a roll tonight~ TWO IN LESS THAN 24 HOURS WUT. Still undecided on his clothing however.]
Orsa Tochia concept portrait
Sol’s journal excerpt sketch of a diamond ridgeback dragon.
Isn’t he talented? Hah~
Thanks to my mother, I’m now stuck watching the Paranormal Witness marathon on Syfy.
I CAN’T LOOK AWAY.
Some good writing inspiration here however.
Chapter three is coming soon ~
I’m in the process of editing.
Hopefully it will be done sometime this week ~
I’ve been failing horribly in Slender.
Mainly because I have an incoherent sense of direction.
A summary of how people die (and don’t) in swordfights
This is a really good article about how quickly people actually die from cuts and punctures inflicted by swords and knives. However, it’s really really long and I figured that since I was summarizing for my own benefit I’d share it for anyone else who is writing fiction that involves hacking and slashing your villain(s) to death. If you want the nitty gritty of the hows and whys of this, you can find it at the original source.
…even in the case of mortal wounds, pain may not reach levels of magnitude sufficient to incapacitate a determined swordsman.
