As I let it simmer for a little bit I'm jumping back into my other WIP (The Animate). The one I abandoned for a little bit. The one at 43,000 words seemed to stagnate. Well, I will not give up nor surrender this one just yet.
Okay, with all that said. You're probably thinking...where's the monster. Here is the first look at the creatures and characters inspiring The Animate.
We begin with The Tokoloshe
In Zulu mythology, Tikoloshe, Tokoloshe or Hili (from the Xhosa word utyreeci ukujamaal) is a dwarf-like water sprite. They are considered a mischievous and evil spirit. Another explanation is that the Tokoloshe resembles a zombie, poltergeist, or gremlin, created by South African shamans who have been offended by someone. The tokoloshe may also wander, causing mischief wherever it goes, particularly to schoolchildren. Other details include its gremlin-like appearance and gouged out eyes. (Wikipedia)
