👍🏻👍🏻 All the best on your writing!!
Thanks! and to yours as well 🙂
Best kind of thrill!! Or one of the best 🙂 I do better with smaller groups of people as opposed to large-scale battles. Mostly by that I mean two people fighting each other. I think I get kinda intimidated by the larger stuff. I am clueless when it comes to battle techniques….my poor soldiers….. I’m hoping to get through my WIP without a battle scene but we’ll see how that works out.
Yeah it can be intimidating, I use some history books that analyze historical battles and the use of the troops. I agree that would be interesting. I have read some novels that referred to battles like it was currently happening or the results of a past battle and focused on others aspects that were affected by the battle’s aftermath.
That is a theme the world needs to hear now! No one is more deserving of love in God’s eyes than someone else. Ooooh different galaxies?! Are the races there human or are there a lot of different races? (If you have that planned out yet)
Yeah I have not planned that far but see the amount of races as something similar to Star Wars and Star Trek. There may be not human but ones very similar to humans and others more unique.
You’ve read The Silm? It’s been on my TBR list for a long time now. Yes, I agree that there should be a clear line between good and evil in fiction. But at the same time you have to show that even the most amazing of heroes are flawed and have their moments of selfishness. Reading about the different religions in your story actually just gave me a story idea (allegory) 😊
Yeah it is a long read and can see like a history book but it does have some cool side stories. Nice! I am interested to see what that is that I might be responsible for. XD Lol
Alright all this to say…. my theme!! Through the course of the book, they both deal with self-doubt/trust. They have to learn to completely trust God no matter what men think about them. And the main lesson – which Nathan helps Payton to see at the end and which scene I can’t wait to write!! – is that we can’t earn favor with God. Also that no matter what we do, no matter how many times we fall, He is NEVER EVER going to let us down. He will always be there for us. We don’t have to try to “measure up” so to speak. I personally struggled a lot with this at one point in my life so I love the idea of putting this theme in.
Yesss! and Amen! 😀 That’s an awesome theme and definitely something the world also needs to hear!
A real hero remains accountable until the end.
