First, an update. I am still working on a short story. The working title is ‘Velvet and Silk, Russett and Grey’, and guess what? I have a male protagonist! Woohoo!! His name is Nicholas Steadwell and I think he’s the kind of guy people will take a liking to. The story’s still early in the plotting stages, though. I haven’t even started a draft of it. But it is progressing forward, albeit slowly.
Now, I want to add that I believe I have settled upon what Chalandris’ solar system will be. It will consist of a single star, much like our own, named Gideon. Around this star will orbit a number of planets. One of these planets will fall within the star’s ‘Habitable Zone’. This planet will be a large, gaseous planet, similar to our Neptune, called Belial. Orbiting this planet will be a large, earth-sized moon with an atmosphere – Chalandris.
Because my ‘creation myth’ for Chalandris is heavily dependent upon such things as this, I now need to rewrite that myth, which is a shame because it was some pretty good stuff, if I do say so myself. But that’s okay; it will make everything better, I’m sure.
Still plodding forward, my erstwhile friends. Thanks for keeping the faith!
