Make the characters as close to normal as possible. This allows people to relate to them. They can have their quirks, but they aren’t super humans. They can get hurt and die.
Make sure that you include different genres. Not just fighting fighting fighting or no fighting at all or nothing else.
Use detail. Not just they went along the path. Add detail such as how the path was, what was the weather. You can use that to set a vivid picture and strong mood to what has happened, what is happening, and what will happen.
Finally, your story is unique to you. You wrote it, you chose it, and nobody can yell at you or tell you you are terrible. You want to write, so you write YOUR story, not someone else’s.
His name is Kenya, and he’s a kaprosuchus (I think I spelled it right haha) who can speak to humans normally.
He was originally a ferocious, and was from my made up ARK, which is full of pollution and toxic stuff, which is how he swallowed element when he was young and can now speak.
The ARK was never supposed to be launched, therefore it’s full of nastiness.
He’s gray and dark purple, if you were wondering. XD
Also, Lava, I may have a solution for Wrecker.
What if when Kenya arrived, SE tried to remove the toxic element from his system by trying to drain it from him? While trying to remove it, some of the removed element could’ve run into a nearby pool of water, and before the ARK could get rid of it, Wrecker drank it.
I’m sure you could come up with better, but that’s just a thought! Thanks!
Also you did spell it right.
You can nickname me Hazi, Haze, or Heeler if you want by the way. That’s all!
