    Red Pill? Or Blue Pill?

    LOL! So true! Strider did his best to subvert that, but his Aragorn kept showing up. I'm considering taking both pills for science. I'll let you guys know what happens and whose theory is proven correct.
  2. Hello!

    Yes, I would love to read your story!  Can we work on Google Docs?  Or do you have another way to see my comments?  

    Blessings to you today!

    The Villain Never Changes

    Prince Hans from Disney's Frozen comes to mind (I'm a Disney nut haha). He's definitely a static character (until the reveal) so the clue definitely works! Yes, Zoom, I think it was... Season 2 maybe. He was literally on the team of good guys for most of the season but was secretly the bad guy. Tolkien mentions in the appendices that he basically became prideful of his own mental strength. He thought he could research and learn about the rings of power without becoming entrapped by the idea of being the master of one - or better yet, the One. It's common that villains have the trait of pride but it's interesting to see one villain's backstory be that he thought he could study "the dark side" in depth without falling prey to it. Also, I know it's a kid's cartoon, but has anyone seen Avatar: The Last Airbender? Prince Zuko has the best villain's redemption arc I've ever seen, bar none. He starts out as the villain and by the end of the series you realize he was the deuteragonist the whole time.

    Don't Quit Your Day Job

    I sometimes wish my day job (teacher) didn't skew my time SO much towards it that I have so little time to write at times... sigh. Que sera sera!
  5. Interesting stuff. Thanks lynn!

    Sad To Say A Former Member Has Passed Away

    I'm a relative newbie here but that is so hard to hear. I will be praying.
  7. This year I want to publish as well, which actually sounds terrifying. Heh!

    Family Just Doesn't Get It!

    All of your posts are breaking my heart! 😥 Remember that we are fearfully and wonderfully made - and God who made you so made you want to write! That said, I should take some of my own advice. I can't what my family thinks of my writing because I am too much of a scared perfectionist to even share what I write with them. 😬 They seem to not mind me typing away, however.

    Prayers For Nicola

    I am so sorry to hear this, @Nicola. I am going through a similar situation with my grandmother. Prayers for you and your mother and your whole family; for comfort and peace. ❤️

    Many Pov

    This is the way I lean in my fantasy story. Sometimes you need someone else’s POV to get something done. But that doesn’t mean you consistently need it.

    Many Pov

    No clue, haha! Just thought it was an interesting example. His publisher hasn’t stopped him. Though maybe there’s a section of the readership that complains. Not being in the fandom, I can’t say. The whole situation is pretty unusual.
