Outline? What outline?
*stumbles in with a cloud of dust*
Okay, I’m here. Thou hast called me.
Anyhow. Let’s break down some prose. *cracks knuckles* I’m going to take this paragraph by paragraph and give my opinion on it and what might be improved. So, without any further ado, let’s begin.
Paragraph #2: Exton has one chance to stop an ancient traitor from rising…

Ohh, this looks fun.
Kirin: Probably screaming from the city square in the middle of the night about all the injustices in the world.
Jax: Tax evasion. *cough* Also for being a mercenary dude in general.
Vyrn: Attacking the guards city guards because they’re taller than her.
Shadow: (Normally, he’d do the arresting) But for now – bringing his…[Read more]
*grin* I haven’t done this in a while, let’s do it again. I’m just going to pick the most recent ones that sounds the best to answer because I don’t know how the system for questions is working these days, soooooo here we go.
Would your character rather live alone for the rest of their lives, but have the safety of their loved ones guaranteed, or…[Read more]
*peeks around the corner*
Is that Star Wars I hear? The original trilogy for the win… anything else is meh for me.
But anyhow, on to the good part – torturing characters!
Mmm, to be honest I try to hold back on the actual torturing, because my characters are traumatized enough without it but as for emotional and psychological torture… as w…[Read more]

Ooh, good choices! To be honest, I like the MC(blanking on his name rn XD) from A Silent Voice better, but I relate to him a bit more as well. 😉 Shoko is also a grand character, however.
It is truly a fascinating topic, isn’t it? I find it rather amusing that despite the fact nearly everyone likes a rogue-ish type…[Read more]

So, hello everyone. Welcome to the grand ol’ show.
We’re here today to discuss something that I find rather interesting – types of characters. I’ve been meaning to do this for a while, because it’s been something on my mind of late, and now I’m getting to it.
What I want to do is sort of survey everyone’s favorite types of characters – those you…[Read more]
Most of my characters are literally built as problems, to be honest, but in my opinion the best way to find a character’s greatest flaw is not to seek it out – but to let it show itself. My main character is idealistic and passionate – but with that passion comes a temper and fiery words that can hurt more than steel when he chooses to be…[Read more]
Oooh wait, we have a discord server? I’ve been so busy lately, must have missed it…. anyhow, could you add me? My username is Sink#2099 if that’s needed. 😉
Sarah Inkdragon commented on the post, Four Ways to Pull the Plot Back Out of Your Character’s Head 2 months, 1 week ago
Well said as ever, Karthmin. 😉 Pulling the plot back *out* of my character’s heads is often very difficult for me, as I tend to let the internal conflict dictate many of the external choices, resulting in a plot driven essentially by one character’s choices – which isn’t bad, per se, but for my type of story it’s not good. 😉 This was very…[Read more]
Hmm, something that horrifies me…. to be honest, I don’t really know. I suppose blind ignorance or forced ignorance by a powerful cause is horrifying, if that counts. Being forced to withhold a certain amount of naivety because of some power ruling over you doesn’t sound fun. I don’t really think there’s much that I’ve been…[Read more]
To put it short – we need help. Somehow, I, the elusive and mystical analytical machine The INTJ, has ended up with an ENFP protagonist.
I am not a feelings-person, nor do I know many feelings-people who are this type of person. So yes. Meet Kirin – the fiercely independent and goal-oriented brain-child of mine who just had to end up this…[Read more]
I’ve read both the ‘condensed’ version of Les Miserables, watched the movie, and I’m working my way through the brick. 😉 It’s a wonderful story, and Fantine’s descent is certainly to be noted.
Frankenstein is on my to-be-read list, though I have listened to some of the musical and it’s quite nice. I’m looking forward to see how exactly Mary…[Read more]
Okay, well first off I’m going to recommend watching some of Hello Future Me’s great video essays on fantasy governments on Youtube. They’re really great. 😉
And secondly, I’m going to echo Evelyn for a moment. Values. Values are possibly the single most important thing of a government – because in essence, a government is a group…[Read more]
Alright. *cracks knuckles*
Okay, so first off, I’m just going to give a total disclaimer – I love magic in books. So yes. I’m a big fan of good implementation of magic in all it’s properties in books and movies.
But now, let’s crack down on exactly what ‘good implementation’ means. First off – magic, defined by the wonderful internet:…[Read more]
Haha, there is nothing to match the power of our predictive and analytical powers. 😉

Unfortunately, tis not written yet. 🙁 But I’m getting around to it. I have bits and pieces here and there…. but nothing complete or even a whole chapter.
*appears in cloud of smoke*
I have been summoned.
Anyhow. Also a disclaimer like Hope said, not every INTJ will react this way. But ye, here’s mine.
1. How is she likely to act under intense pressure (like, life-and-death pressure)?
Under life and death type-pressure, calm on the outside and probably crazy on the inside. We’re masters of…[Read more]
