Did You Know that the world in Awakening originally had a violet sun and sky?
My original vision for the world was one where the pollution (in the form of heavy upper atmosphere smog) had caused the sky to appear violet at all times. Additionally the colour would change to shades of red and violet at sunrise and sunset.
While this would have created a very cool mental image, I found it hard to picture and continuously forgot to include it. Thus the idea was abandoned early on and I settled on the current normal sky and sun.
I guess it just goes to show that you never really know how much thought goes into the tiniest of details when you are writing…
Thanks for listening, the next Did You Know will focus on Lanista’s original name.
Look forward to it!
And remember, Never Lose Your Stride!
