@arindown Awww, thank you!! In all fairness the book’s in the editing stage so I’ve had a while to develop them… which I kind of love doing with all my heart. 😝 And YES, Har is hands-down an ISTP-T. He can definitely be assertive, but yeah, he’s shy. 🙃 Plus, his PTSD contributes to that side of his personality. 😉
(@arindown Hey, thanks for tagging me! 😉)
@winter-rose Okay, this is gonna be long. 😆
So yes, I write Army stories, but I actually have LE characters too, including a POV character. I’ve never specifically sat down to research it, because it’s something I’m pretty well familiar with. 😝 But here’s my thoughts.
Heads-up, probably needless to say,…[Read more]
@melodyjoy Thanks so much for tagging me!!
I love how real this feels, like I just watched Chloe doing all this stuff. And I totally feel for her in some people just not being draining. 😅
Honestly, the only thing I can think to change is smoothing out a couple places…
“I pulled a boxed dinner from the freezer and placed it in the microwave. I…[Read more]
@arindown, and @everybody
Ahhh, thanks for this!! And wow, I love reading about everybody’s characters!! This is such a fun thread…
Okay, I have kind of a big cast of characters without realizing it, so I’ll just touch on my four most important…
Harley Keane: my POV character. He’s 18, slightly shorter than average, baby-faced with blue-…[Read more]
Yeahhh, I don’t always like research either, but it grows on ya. 😉
Awww! Well, it’s easy because I’m on my phone. 😉 But there’s usually ways to get them to pull up on computers, you might have to look it up…
@naiya-dyani NAIYAAAAA it’s so good!! It captures his personality so well somehow!! 🥰
@beth20 Yay! I hope you enjoy it!
@claire-h Sorry, I got it, just hadn’t approved the comment yet
@seekjustice YES CHELSEA 🙌🏻🙌🏻🙌🏻
@chalice Eeeee, I can’t wait!! McKinley 💙
Of course!! It took me a bit to get the hang of things here too, but everyone’s nice. 😉
His name is Thunder Canyon. 🥰 And yeah, he’s big, even for a retriever, but he’s so gentle.
I write contemporary war fiction–modern day military stories. 💙 It’s a niche I think needs filled, and I love it.
I love that!! It’s neat that you’re…[Read more]
Oooh ooh ooh I am so here for this!
(Okay so, I’m slightly biased because I love broken characters, and make them all messed-up and moody and I’m done for.)
My POV character in my WIP, Harley, isn’t exactly bitter—well, maybe—but he’s seething angry with the world. He hates himself, he hates his best friend, he hates his battle budd…[Read more]
@arindown Thanksy, I will… ☺️
I’m a city girl myself, but I’m currently living in a small town… quite the adjustment, but I think it’d be a really setting. And yeah, “Mayberry” is one big reference, although I’m obviously more familiar with the song than the show. 😉
Well, if you get something to post tag me, I’d love to see it. …
*waves* Go Texas!!! 💙 and homeschoolers 😉
Hope you like what you see around here!
His-fic is the best. 🥰 I mostly write contemporary, but I absolutely love historical fiction, and I write short his-fic stories sometimes—I just can’t do a full novel of it… yet. 😉 What era do you like to write about?
I love rabbits ☺️ I don…[Read more]
I think it ate my post, second try 😝
Oh boy *rubs hands together* Thanks for this, @eden-anderson!!
My WIP, currently in the self-edit stage and 73k words, is Stop the Rain: Never Leave a Fallen Comrade. It’s the story of a teenage US Army MP (military police) during the heat of Iraq: growing up—joining the Army—getting deploye…[Read more]
@claire-h So long as you plan to work those details in sometime, don’t worry too much about the first chapter—leave us a little bit of mystery. 😉
*manifests from the void*
@katja-r Thanks for tagging me for this!
Okay. Christian movies I’ve loved. All of the Kendricks’, for sure… Overcomer might be my favorite, but I’m still super attached to Facing the Giants and probably always will be. 🥰
I Can Only Imagine makes me cry every time, no matter how many times I’ve seen it. That scene w…[Read more]
*screams from the void* GO ARMY!!!! 🖤💚
I write contemporary too. 😉 I’ve read The Girl Who Could See (how could that be so relatable…) and a couple of the Ilyon books—fantasy isn’t usually my thing, but I really enjoyed those!
And wow, the premise/synopsis of your book is so neat!! Stopping and facing your problems is somethin…[Read more]
Okay, I don’t have the time rn to go through it in-depth, but I sat down to read it over, and it’s captivating!! I love Jean’s personality shining through. Something to bear in mind—you definitely don’t have to spill it in the first chapter, just for future reference—I’m curious how old they are, and what their situations are that they…[Read more]
