Tuesday Teaser #26

Every Tuesday, I post a teaser for one of my current works in progress. I invite all of my writer buddies to join in!

The rules:
Post a link, image, quote, or excerpt related to or taken from your current WIP.
State the name of the WIP.
Do NOT explain yourself! Resist the urge to wax poetic. This is a hint, not an outline.

The Mage

A medium could not kill, so what was he?

  1. Well, I was expecting to come here with a fancy schmancy illustration of one of the dragons in my WIP, titled The Other WIP, this week because I have commissioned my 23 year old nephew, who has Asperger’s and is quite a fine artist, to draw all eight different types of dragons in that story. His mother and I are trying to get him to branch out from exclusively drawing vampire Manga, and we figured money for new art supplies would do the trick. However, I did not take into consideration his autism when it came to interpreting my ideas into images. His literal thinking has made us come to a stand still because “stone” dragons would not have wings because if they are stone they would be to heavy to fly. I wrote a description for him about how they are called “stone dragons” because they are the color of stone, and their feral ancestors used to hang out on rocky outcroppings as camouflage. I then went on to explain the similar application of the name “water dragon” named not because they are made of water, but because they are good swimmers and have webbed feet. I had success with the explaination about “stone dragons”, but now the snag is that water dragons wouldn’t have wings because it would make them less hydrodynamic. Ha ha. I am confident that I will be able to explain my way through all of the dragons’ anatomies and hopefully show up here with something next week. However, in trying to think all of these things through, I solved a missing link I had in the evolution of the different types of dragons. One that I had been fretting over for quite sometime. Maybe I should pay him for helping me figure it out.:D

    • Well, he makes some pretty compelling arguments!
      Water dragons could absolutely have wings! Water birds like grebes are diving birds. They can swim very well underwater, swim floating on top of water, or fly.
      I can’t wait to see them!
