@catwing *coughs and pulls feathers out of hair* which one? In either case, not really anywhere!September 22, 2017 at 10:53 pm #44492
*wrinkles nose* @seekjustice Why not? You wanted to finish your super hero book that you’re having beta-read next month. Does it have a name? I don’t think you told me.September 22, 2017 at 10:55 pm #44493
@catwing it’s working name is Black and White, but only because I am useless at titling books. It’s actually finished, I just wanted to fix up the first three chapters, which I thought needed some work before you and the other guys looked it over. I’m kind of stuck though as to how I rewrite those chapters.September 22, 2017 at 11:05 pm #44494
@seekjustice *nods* That can be tough. Have you ask some one you know for some advice or is your book more secretive? That helped me.September 22, 2017 at 11:11 pm #44495
@catwing no, I haven’t asked any one for advice yet. I’m not super secretive about my book. basically, I had the main character becoming deaf in an accident in the first chapter, however, I decided that I wanted him to be deaf before the opening of the book. unfortunately, I have no idea how to open now.September 22, 2017 at 11:20 pm #44496
@seekjustice How about something that say he’s deaf?
He could be watching a movie. He can’t hear it so he has to lip-read. And when they turn away he has to guess what they are saying.
Sign-language or lip reading class.
Looking for a service dog.
Someone is talking, but they turn away and he can’t hear them, so he has to ask them to turn back around.
Have you seen ‘Sue Thomas F.B.Eye’? She’s deaf.September 22, 2017 at 11:30 pm #44497
@seekjustice I wrote 1233 words! Yay! And finished a chapter! One or two to go!September 22, 2017 at 11:33 pm #44498
@catwing yay!!! I’m procrastinating by reading Les Miserables. I’ll have a think over what you told me though.September 22, 2017 at 11:39 pm #44499
You’re welcome @seekjustice
For the beginning of your book you need a hook. Showing that your character is deaf seemed like a good hook.
The F.B.Eye show is pretty intresting. It’s an older show so I don’t know if you can find it. She is an F.B.I. Agent that is deaf. But she can read lips.
It’s an American show too. F.B.I. Is part of law enforcement.
If you can watch it, it may help. I don’t know.September 22, 2017 at 11:39 pm #44500
@seekjustice It’s late here, so I’m leaving. Bye.September 22, 2017 at 11:43 pm #44501
Black and White as a title sounds cool. @seekjustice.September 23, 2017 at 7:22 pm #44813
