    Thank you so much for commenting.


    @k-a-grey

    I can see where you are coming from with Harry Potter, and I have some good friends who feel the same way. Hold strong to those convictions!

    I appreciate you being willing to beta read my novel! I know reading a novel is a big ask, so whatever you can get done would be greatly appreciated. I know some beta readers who just give overall impressions while others go into the details, while some just write every little thing that comes to their minds (not always a good thing or helpful… lol). But whatever you feel like contributing would be great.

    Some overarching things I am worried about or would love to hear would be whether there are dry or boring parts, whether the story flows, whether there are inconsistencies in character or plot, what you like or don’t like, and your general opinion of the story. But don’t feel like you have to say or write about any of that. Just write whatever you feel up to writing, and whatever you give will be greatly appreciated!

    What would a good email be to share the google doc with you?

    @jared-williams Well, honestly, I’m not really comfortable with sharing my email here.  Could you give me an address where I could email you? But then again, you might not be comfortable with that either….😅

    Or maybe you would be okay with sharing the link, but making it so only people who are signed in can see it? If you’re not okay with that, then I’ll share my email as a comment on here, but I’ll delete it within 10 min.

    @jared-williams Thanks!  (How close did I get to what you imagined?)

    sorry for the late reply.

     

    lol. it was close. Most of the differences are just me being exceedingly nitpicky. =)

     

    The differences:

    – red scales instead of green

    – the front fins are near perfect except the three fingers come straight out of the curve of the fin, so there is no hand-like connection between the fingers and the fin

    – it’s rather hard to draw, but the nails of the back legs are like thick shields, if that makes sense… (easy for me to picture in my head. lol. but hard to describe…  if you were to bend the first joint of each of your fingers straight down, then imagine the part bent down being the thick fingernail, it’s sort of like that…. if that makes sense?)

    – the ears go straight up, just like you drew, and they face outward to the side, like you drew; however, they then curve down, and connects to the nape of the tannink’esh’s neck…like the front is similar to a cliff, while the back is like a sloping hill down to the nape of the neck… if that makes sense? (lol. some reason I can picture my creature great, but can’t describe the specifics of it very well. ;o_ )

    – snout slightly smaller and a bit more thick, like a lions, bringing the eyes closer and more vertical to the snout like a lions……less like a dragons… lol. even though it is my world’s version of a dragon.

    – the “mane” is extremely hard to draw… I know… but it also goes all the way around its head. It is like the axolotl’s “gills”, but the big difference being it goes all the way around the head and sticks out more vertically than diagonally…

    but I’m being nitpicky. =)
