"The Undiscovered Tribe"

Facts

Facts on The Undiscovered Tribe. 😀


 

— It took my twenty-one days to write the first draft; however it wasn’t published till several months later, after what felt like forever of proofreading!

— I only killed off Embers because I didn’t like his character.

— Speaking of Embers; because his name is plural, Microsoft Word constantly marked sentences containing his name as fragmented! (i.e. “Embers walks” would have been corrected to “an ember walks” or “ember walks.”)

— My mom edited the book – without her, it’d be full of errors!

— Seaweed only speaks directly to the readers once, when she thinks to herself, “So I’ll spare you those.”

photo 2 (25) (1)— The idea for the story in general came from some cute little doodles I did one day, one of which being a winged wolf. Because of my natural love for water, I knew the main character would be a WaterWolf.

— The book has just over 20,000 words; the sequel has 25,000, and the third will probably be 30,000.

— Shard never drowned when Seaweed dropped him into the ocean – he sank into WaterTribe’s camp and they took him in.

— The song “Shining Moon” was originally Twinkle Twinkle Little Star, but I changed it because of copyright.

— I actually wrote a sequel not two months after writing the first, but I didn’t like how it turned out, so I rewrote it.

— Avalene was originally going to be called “Metteh,” (based off of a book character I used to like) but it sounded odd to me, so I asked my dad for options, and he jokingly said, “Avalon.” So I changed it to Avelene (pronounced Ava-lee-n).

— In the original plot, the only survivors of the ShadowWolf prison were supposed to be Anthill and Shard, but I grew attached to Seaweed and changed the plot a bit.

— A good friend of mine created Dreary (the character whom pinned Embers down while Star killed him). Speaking of which, Dreary has been given a much more important part in the future books!


I’ll probably post more in the future, but I don’t like writing posts that are super long. 🙂 Hope you liked it!
