Dylan and the Dream Pirates

I’m almost finished with Chapter One: The Problem with Pirates. I kind of surprised myself by how I put various bits of information in there. The story is surprising me as well.

To begin with, the story feels a bit darker.

And now, I’m messing with the language. I’m trying to figure out a better word to use for cool. I know that’s likely what an 11 year old would likely use, but it doesn’t feel right. I’m trying to work out a private slang language between the father and the son.

I really like the dynamic of the father and son. I’m reminded a bit of Something Wicked This Way Comes.
