I'm a well read grad student who's bluntly honest about all things, although I try to be most honest about myself.
I want to write some short stories - possibly leading to something bigger - about raptors. Specifically my favorites: velociraptors, although I'll probably go the Crichton route and fudge a bit. Real velociraptors were about as large as turkeys - and as smart, and they were amongst the smartest of the dinosaurs. They were also feathered.
Especially if I do a humans living a world of dinosaur book? I'm going to make them a little more badass.
I want them to have edge.
This is mostly ordered: my mom is requiring me to do this so I will shut up about not having enough books. I've not been happy with Blue from Jurassic World fanfic, either. So I'll be binging on dinosaur books for a while, because as my mom has said on different occasions:
1. it will keep me occupied
2. it will shut me up about not having enough books about my favorite raptors.
Wish me luck.
