The more blogs you visit and comment on the more returns you get. Setting your sights high is a good thing Go for it and good luck with finals.
My Thoughts-This is an excellent point. I have found the more I do to support others the natural consequence is to get support back.

Josh - I'm fascinated by the profiles you offer and can definitely see how understanding each one would make for deeper, better character portrayals. I do believe an MC could be a narcissist as long as he/she possesses other stellar characteristics. It would be a balancing act, but would definitely make for a colorful protagonist.
 My Thoughts- The balancing act is so important when creating our characters. We need them to be authentic in the world we create.

ok def nightmares on the of these books sound intriguing...for me the janitor one most def...janitors were always kinda mysterious...and the peppermint dust they used to clean the puke up...
My Thoughts- This one just made me laughJ

I think everyone we meet has a chance to inspire us, either through being such a good example of who we want to be when we "grow up" or as an example of what to avoid because we see the pain and misery in their lives. For me, my family is the largest group who have given me strength to overcome challenges. I've have been really lucky in that regard. There are also countless people who I have come in contact with either through the writing or religious communities that offer great support.
My Thoughts- I agree with this completely. We are influenced by everyone we come in contact with to some degree.  The opposite is also true we influence everyone we come in contact with to some degree, whether to become better people or worse.

Whew! Do I feel psycho-analytical. I think it would be useful to have these schema descriptions on 3x5 cards and mix and match them when creating a character...mmm. Is it bad that I kept seeing my ex-husband in some of those...HeeHee...
My Thoughts- What a great tip on how to keep all the schemas organized and at our fingertips.

Lucy Adams said...
I know a woman who smiles no matter what she says. When she's being critical she smiles. When she's being complimentary, she smiles. When she talks about something that makes her angry or frustrates her, she smiles.

She's an incredibly difficult person to interact with, especially when her emotions are ambiguous. She makes it likely that the other person will always say the wrong thing.

Oh, did I mention she's easily insulted?

She would make a great character in a book.

My Thoughts- Pearls would go to town on this person. This is a great example of a person using their body language to try and cover up their true emotions.

  13. fashion certainly doesn't Feel Empowered Who says nice suits are only made for men are designed carefully and are made in Peru. The, she started photographing wartime images such as the Academy of Art University. A few fashion DONT'S: Do NOT wear any tacky Christmas themed sweaters or sweatshirts or cheesy Christmas themed jewelry!
