Good evening brothers and sisters, friends and neighbors, vibrations in the mind of the one true God, that is Love. I've come across some interesting questions on Quora I'd like to share with you today. I think many of you will find it as useful and insightful as I have. Enjoy!

A Thought For The Day:

"Death destroys the body, as the scaffolding is destroyed after the building is up and finished. And he whose building is up rejoices at the destruction of the scaffolding and of the body." -Leo Tolstoy, novelist and philosopher (1828-1910)  


  1. Nice, the questions make me think, and the links help too. I especially am interested in knowing more about character development. I've recently been reading this trilogy called the Birthmarked trilogy, and they're written so well. The author, Caragh O'Brien, really fascinates me with the way she shows her characters' thoughts. It's brilliant, and I'm hoping I can write something like that one day :D

  2. Character development is crucial to any absorbing story,you're lucky you found an author that can do that in the right way, Skyril- a fantastic opportunity to learn!
    You don't see too much of it these days. Character progression is another important factor that, if one gets it right, could make for a powerful story.
    I remember seeing this in the anime Gantz; it was well written in this way. The main character (our unwilling protagonist) starts off as one thing: rather unlikable, not very brave and nothing like a hero. But by the time you're about 4 or 5 episodes in, he's been molded into an entirely different character, by a series of unfortunate events, and I dare say becomes more likable. He trades his vices for virtues in a way that's actually believable!
