    Summary

    I’m interested in offering general advice you can apply to whatever you’re writing.

    My focus in this guide is twofold:
    1) to show you how to puzzle your way through story and character construction by asking yourself useful questions and
    2) to push you to explore ideas you might not explore normally and to generate new content for your existing stories.

    More than anything, I decided to put this guide together because it’s advice I could have used when I was a baby fic writer. I know a bit more now than I did then. Hopefully it’s helpful to you too!

    Summary

    What Wake gives it is not a name. To do so would be a moronic, unnecessary cruelty. But she does deign to give it the microscopic dignity of a title, a goal, a purpose. Bomb.

    Eighteen years later, in the rubble of a once-sacred home, Harrowhark Nonagesimus reaches up and touches Gideon Nav’s grit-covered, blood-rimed face, splits a laugh like the world is ending, and calls her “flower.”

    Paying Respects: Cute, and very funny story about teenage Gideon getting her sword, showing it to her mother and making so many reasonable, but wrong assumptions.
