Happy Monday all!
Hope you moms out there had a wonderful Mothers Day yesterday.
Today’s page gets some thanks in part to you guys.
Considering the comments I got on Friday’s page. Regarding the island Tehalihwa’khwa and the location of the Centaur tablet.
You guys commented that it’s kind of an easy place for Nicodemus to find the tablet. Right there in the open.
My thoughts were that it’s within a tent and such (as you guys can see there’s drapery and what not up there) and Nicodemus has only heard “rumors” that these tablets exist. Not until the end of the last chapter where he says “So…it IS true.” does he actually believe it.
So really he wasn’t looking for them. BUT…since I’m not going to be around to TELL everyone who reads the Dreamland Chronicles every time someone buys the book….I thought I’d add a bit to the dialog.
Originally…the page read as such…
You…you know where your tablets are?
Then he thinks some more.
Who told you we were even LOOKING for them?
The princess. Nastajia.
She told me of your quest. And how Nicodemus now has the Amulet that locates each tablet.
He looks down.
So you can see above I’ve added a bit….while still hopefully keeping along the lines of what is in my script.
Let me know if it makes sense.
I was considering adding the obvious question of “Why don’t you get KIWI to get the tablet?” tomorrow.
I still might. But I’m working on it not sounding dorky.
THe point is…Tehalihwa’khwa was always supposed to be a goal for Alexander. Something for him to work towards. It’s not that no one can get to it. Obviously the fairies and many other creatures in Dreamland can get to it. And the fairies no doubt would have helped the Centaurs get the tablet there in the first place.
It’s just something for him to work towards.
But the great thing about having you guys read along while I work on pages ahead is…
You can tell me what works and what doesn’t. Then I go with my gut and decide what I’d like to change and what I’d like to keep.
I like this. So thank you all.
Now it’s up to you to tell me if my changes are stupid or not….OK?
OK…in other news…
I did a few sketch cards for the March of Dimes. It’s a great charity. So please feel free to bid…or tell someone you think might want to. Thanks.
This is my LAST week of updating 3 days a week.
I’ve now got 18 pages rendered…and by the end of this week…I hope to have 30. So starting next week…we go back to our regularly scheduled 5 days a week updates.
Thank you all for your patience and support.
Have a wonderful day.
