  1. I think most characters will have hope. Maybe not at first in a story because of course there is usually an event that breaks them apart. Eventually however, a character gains hope somehow, whether it be through a mentor or lover or something else, and will eventually move the story forward. Hope seems to me like a very important concept in a story, when the character has hope, so does the reader. Although, sometimes even when a character does not have hope to move him/her forward, the reader will have hope for them.
  2. I hope everyone is having a great holiday! I'm gonna be spending my days off to read more of The Way of Kings by Brandon Sanderson. The book is fantastic so far and I can't wait to read more of it! 

  3. Merry xmas! I got a new bookshelf 😜, which is great because my old one was falling apart. This one is almost full already though so I'm going to have to get another one by mid next year!
  4. I am not sure why, but I very much enjoy when a MC character kills people... lol. It just feels more real to me. Killing for no reason gets annoying, but whatever the motivation to do it, as long as they have a strong motivation to kill in some way, I usually love it!

    'Religion' Game

    That's pretty cool! I didn't know about the game. I think it would fit pretty well on a mobile app setting, might get a larger player base that way.

It's going okay considering I've only been writing for about 2 weeks. Have you participated in NaNoWriMo? If so, how has your experience been?
