Preptober Prompts Day 9 – 2020

Preptober Prompts Day 9 – 2020

Ooh, this is a fun one.

How do different characters view your core setting differently? Are any of those views accurate?

Saria views it as a magical fairyland. After all, she’s ten and she just found out she’s a princess. There is magic, and the people of The Hylands tend to be pretty cool, so she’s not entirely wrong, but of course nothing is quite as rosy as a fairytale.

Leafman doesn’t give a whole lot of thought to the setting itself, actually (although he misses things like electricity), because he’s too busy thinking about how miserable all the people are. (They’re not.) But, though he’d never admit it, he does find the capital rather charming and inspiring, with all sorts of pleasant, colorful characters in it.

Sarabrina finds The Hylands fascinating. She’s read so many books and imagined Continue reading “Preptober Prompts Day 9 – 2020”

May-June Language of Worlds Link-Up

There’s another edition of Language of Worlds out! This month, I’ll be answering for Rynn.

Over the past few months, however, my character-building process has become more conscious and I’ve been able to identify some details that help make more engaging, realistic characters. Here are five details to think about when creating your characters. Continue reading “5 Traits of Realistic Characters”

The Language of Worlds Link-Up #4

The Language of Worlds Link-Up #4

This is my absolute last opportunity to do this link-up, seeing as it’s the March-April edition and today is the last day of April. You see how good my planning skills have been this month. XD

In honor of The Mirror-Hunter Chronicles releasing tomorrow, I’m going to answer these questions for Eira Evanly, the antagonist of TM-HC. Continue reading “The Language of Worlds Link-Up #4”

The Star Wars Character Tag

Two weeks ago, Jenna Terese did two character tags and left them partially open. I thought they looked cool, so I’ll be doing one this week and one next week, and I’m technically not stealing them. ;) And to make things challenging, I’ll only be using characters from The Masked Captain and The Mirror-Hunter Chronicles, since those are my two projects this month.
