Heads up! Great stuff today

Alright everyone, I wanted to let you know that today I got done with the outline for the short story. Which means that in the near future this blog will be featuring the first short story from the world of Dymos! Who here is excited? I'm looking forward to it.
Schooling's been going okay. I did drop one class and added another to complete a core requirement. I did want to take the class I wanted. However I felt like I was going to be struggling a lot. I was taking a class on the Ancient Near East to try to do some research in trying to develop a culture for a part of Dymos. Last week while I was looking through the scriptures a thought was pressing down on me that I needed to take something else. I met with counselors to look at other majors in case I wouldn't be able to go with plan A, and I also looked at core requirement classes I could take instead.
The class I went with was Introduction to Film. I enjoyed what I experienced today. We got to see some of the old original black and white silent films, from shorts lasting only fifteen seconds to what is generally regarded as the first Western The Great Train Robbery. Seeing how films were done like that was amusing. However I'm glad that people kept working at developing this discovery and now we can create astonishing worlds in movies and make it so that what you see on screen is coming out towards you. Probably not the best if it's some ravenous rabid monster. Kidding. I've never experience that thankfully. One interesting thing that I learned was that what is considered by all technicality the first film was something used to win an argument about horses leaping.
Well that seems to be enough for tonight. I'll try to make sure I get a post in tomorrow. Be sure to keep an eye out for when the first short story comes about, and please let anyone and everyone you know who likes fantasy, prehistory, or Dymos be aware as well.
