XD. I meant the way you classify sarcasm as a language

I’m stuck deciding what the characters’ heights will be. Like I want them to be close of height but again often one of them complains about how his partner often stands high so he doesn’t get kissed.

The progenitor to elves and men were 6’4 on average, and humans were around 6’2, and the wood-elves would be the same height, and high-elves would be freakishly tall at an average of 6’7. And the dawn-elves would be around 6’10… what more?

So the royals and nobles are taller than the rest because better nutrition, and the king of the wood-elves is as tall as an average high-elf, and his son (the MC) is a bit shorter. Does that sound logical?

So my characters would finally be 6’6 and 6’10. That’s still enough to kiss.


#7886

I’ve read it online.


#7887

Just turn the movie up at full volume on your phone. Happens all the time at McDonalds is annoying because I would like to eat in peace. XD


#7888

Can I get help pinning down a detail?


#7889

Depends, what kind of detail?


#7890

Trying to figure out how long my MC will sleep for.


#7891

#7892

Tis not normal circumstances


#7893

Then depends on the situation.

My teacher just asked me if I want to do Poetry Out Loud after reading my poem and listening to it, this was her feed back: Wow…this was so powerful to read! Thanks for sharing it AND the story behind it!!!


#7896

I’ve never shared anything I wrote in my freetime with a teacher before, I was nervous about submitting it because I thought she might feel it was too dark or something, my recording wasn’t the best either near the end


#7897

Finished the 2nd chapter of my novel!


#7898

Hooray! It always feels rewarding to finish a chapter


#7899

congratulations!


#7900

Okay, I started a rewrite yesterday and wrote a 200 word prologue, which is spoken from a historian’s perspective on an event. Does that sound well?

It’s not a story, it’s an epic poem that in my universe was memorized by adventurers and minstrels to be sung around campfires.


#7901

Ooh, sounds cool! If you use all the cool epithets like Homer did please share them here!


#7902

I can’t write it as I’m supposed to, because it’s in a different language.

At the rise of dawn’s blood-red sun,
songs of songbirds were all ceased,
with the cry of hedonic battle-horns
were the warrior-hordes unleashed
upon the forces of the fair warriors,
brave and stalwart, land-guardians,
and of them Ethalgard, the greatest,
his dinted helm spewing blood-fire,
spirit unbent, unbowed, unbroken.


#7903

Sounds cool so far!
