Let me teach you about procrastination, boys and girls

You have a wyvern army? Cool. We should pit the wyvern army against the robot army.

:BLINK: The time-skipper? Why the frell did I write the timeline for his story?
(He's a character from a planned sequel who isn't even in this book, though an important person in his life makes a very brief cameo.)

tanelos is the WIP journal.

Moral of my writing process:
Procrastination's a bitch. In particular, yodge and miajesbar were right: don't dilly-dally too much with nonessentials such as timelines, floor plans, soundtracks, etc.

(Although I must mention that the above word count includes my appendix on Terionach and Archniniei units of measurement, which are actually metric in origin.)

Morals of my story
(Cliche moral) Heroes come in all shapes, sizes, sexes, creeds, colors, ages, sexual orientations, and with all manner of physical descriptions and handicaps.
(World building moral) If you exile people with certain metapsychic powers, don't expect for them not to breed in exile or for their descendants not to come back and get you.
(Interesting plot twist moral #1) Don't mess with dragon genomes.
(Interesting plot twist moral #2) The first time someone who has never directed a psychic concert of thousands does so, don't be surprised if he goes a little power-mad.
(Interesting plot twist moral #3) CRUOR EMICAT UT FONS


Genre: SF

One-liner description:
A centuries-long cold war between two superpower nations of the psychically gifted heats up when a tyrannical mage-lord declares war on both sides.
