Satlick: Centaur Detective #7
Note
I'm giving up on the story in picture format, it's a pain in the ass for me and elongates the whole process.
So it's back to extra long threads for now.
I'll use @threadreaderapp at the end for those who find it a bit much.
Now where were we...
"I dislike small talk Commander as well you know, the Darwinists, while a problem, are not our current problem" Saltlick replied in a professorial tone "Honestly I don't know how you people get anything done!"
"You people?" the other three people said at once, leaping at a golden
opportunity to flummox the centaur.
"Are you a speciest now Saltlick?" asked the commander* *Like a racist except for other species rather than other people of the same biological class, seen as terrible character flaw and indicator of stupidity by most people in the city.**

"We were just attacked by a shape-shifting sorcerer who pretended to be one of my subordinates, I can be as unladylike as I want."

Not as many words today, but that's ok!

“Put the weapon down, ma’am. You don’t want to start a fight with me.”
Myrina inhaled sharply, like she was about to say something, then didn’t.

I thought today we'd have a nice chat about outlines today.

Are they the enemy? Are you making them the enemy? What do they do? What good are they? Why is this the hill people want to die on?

For reasons I never learned in school and have only barely begun to learn in life as a professional, people absolutely love labels for their work, and the work of others. It gives them something to debate, it gives them something to cling to or hide from.
Right up there with the show-vs-tell argument is another ancient battlefield with its own misconceptions, assumptions, heaps of bullshit, and utility.

Pantser and plotter.

Yeah, we're going there today.

Out of the goodness of my heart, here are corrections for some misinterpretations regularly seen in fantasy novels set in Middle-Eastern settings. A thread follows👇🏼.
#amwriting #amwritingfantasy #amreading
1. The Middle East is not all desert. Actually, the Middle East is not all hot and dry. Levantine winters are brutally snowy, and Tunisia is known among the locals as “Tunisia the Green”.
2. The word “Harem” comes from “hurum”, meaning “a sacred/forbidden part of a place”, and doesn’t mean women. It had nothing to do with concubines until the Ottomans, and when orientalist paintings started the idea of “whatever is happening in that forbidden part”.
