Saturday Series: WIP Joy Questions Pt. 3
11. A favorite line about emotion from your WIP.
He gazed around at the quarters still being doused in water by work hands and lost his breath at the thought of Ghuli* being in the grips of pain, in the midst of everything before his eyes.
12. A scene you deleted but you love anyway (sadness!).
There was a battle scene that inevitably didn't make sense per location. The crew was chased down by a Trollic version of the coast guard, and a fight ensued between Laris, Cyan and a paratrooper. He starts strangling Laris, basically breaks Cyan's face, and doesn't notice Brodie shooting at him with a bullet that turns him to stone. The imagery was great, but I realized they wouldn't have run into the guards in the direction they were going, so NIX.
13. A piece of feedback that made you smile.
My friend's mom (an early beta reader and #1 fan lol) said the story is too short, and she wanted me to expand on a lot.
14. How do you want the target audience to be affected by this story?
I want this to be something they'll love, and that they'll read more times than once, and cosplay at conventions!
15. Is there an animal you love in your book?
When I was a kid, I used to have dreams about a white tiger protecting me or that I'd escape on. I actually had one before I started writing this story, so I incorporated white, stripeless, tiger-like beasts I call leonines into the story that protect Ghuli at times.
*This post occurred before I changed Ghuli's name to Jonnie*
