    @taylorclogston, your words highlight how not easy to manage this theme is. It can touch very deep our hearts, even when we aren’t the victims. Thanks for sharing your thoughts.

    I didn’t know Wise Blood. I will read it for sure. By the time SE launched the reading club on The Promise of Jesse Woods I tried to buy it, but I just couldn’t. Maybe it’s time to read the articles.

    You are rigth:  the story I began to write doesn’t mention anything so difficult as sexual crimes, but, yes, it has do to with people sinnig against each other (at least, by not loving) and how this forty years old man will deal with it being himself the victim.

    Thanks for your praying. I wish I could write something (even without an happy end) that brings grace (and a warm hug :-)) to the reader.

    You know, I’m Brazilian. It’s interesting that this theme can reach Christians from different backgrounds.

    “Loliness wasn’t the final word to describe the future of that old man. Nor rest, nor safeness. In fact, who could see boldness fitting so well with silver hair?”

    Thanks for the answers! And the good questions you mentioned. It seems they can help me to develop my writing.

    I think this character is disappointed in the church. His arc will be: how to trust again the children of God?

    Thanks also for suggesting to pray over this theme. Yes, The Bride! I really forgot doing that!

    • 1984 – It made feel a profound fear of suffering like the chacarters. It took from me almost one week of good sleep.
    • The Chronicles of Narnia – I was a new christian when I first read it. It was deligthful to see my brand new faith portrayed in a so smart way.
    • Bagagem from Adélia Prado. She writes poems, the first ones I read that deals with feminity and christian faith that are not related to being married or being a mother. It’s about being woman, full of humanity, in flesh. She also describres her life in a small town in Minas Gerais, a brasilian state that doesn’t have any contact with sea. Due to her writings, I decided to pursue a degree on creative writing.

    3)What would be the first thing you do on Saturday morning after a long, stressful week?

    As an  architect INFJ/T too, I would leave my bed early to ride my bike or to take a long walk on a park, with abundant trees. Alone. After that, I would apreciate to have lunch with a special friend on a nice restaurant.

    You know, @anne_the_noob14, yesterday I listened a sermon on Proverbs 31. The pastor said that trought that poem God himself was praising godly women. So we his children could/should imitate him on doing that. I think it’s something you did here (and, I belive, I may try too).

    New questions!

    1) Do you wear shoes? How many?

    2) Have you ever done any handmade things? Which ones?

    3) Are you ashamed of something? Is there anyone who knows it?

    How nice this sentence: “When something goes wrong in your life, just yell, “Plot twist!” and keep going.” !

    Answering for Jericó

    1) What is the most oddly satisfying thing for them?.

    Playing bass with friends. Walking very early in the mornig, while the sun is rising.

    2) What animal creeps them out the most?

    Creeps? Maybe cats.

    3) Are they good at carrying a conversation? Yes, but with few words. He’s a quite silent guy. He enjoys being around when a friend needs, not exactly talking. I’m mean, he knows listening.

    New questions

    1) What are your worst nighmare?

    2) Do you enjoy swiming?

    3) Do you have any scars (in body or soul)?

    I took the test too. Got the same (Journeyman Writer). The questions made me think more about my writting itself than my routines as a writter. Kind of more usefull to me.

    I’ve read Fancine Prose’s book.  Some questions remembered me her book.

    😉

    I don’t like this topic so much. I think writers should care about theme and let their personal ability to choose the character that fits better to it. Writers should feel free to portray who and what they intend to (or are able to).

    But I would apreciate some stories of a priest where he can do his job in peace, like if it could be a normal part of life of the other characters. Kind of Father Brown from Chersterton…(but nowadays).

    I’m not writting at all too. I spent all the week at home (but monday) engaged with cooking, cleaning and organizing things.

    What’s happening changed peoples perspective of live. We are dealing with things that few of us could imagine.  And so fast. I guess I needed some time to rest these ideas. I fell that what I’m about to write will be diferent too.

    But tomorrow is saturday and I’ll plan the next week my time for writing and taking notes. If God’s will, besides all He is doing.

    I’ve been thinking on that and my guess is this niilism around us that causes D.O.D being popular. In a world with no hope, no good for free and no strength above human strength, the heroine must held it the best possible. That’s why we woman have been portrait “as strong as man”; that’s the best woman this world can give birth.

    So, an possible answer may came from the question: in the Kindom of God, who are the heroines? How they behave? Why they behave like that?

    Besides that, I think  D.I.D. are another lie about being woman. As for as I know, this picture comes from Romantism, which pursue “ideal” woman.
