When writing a character, authors have to keep in mind many aspects about that character such as their personality, careers, and their relationships. One thing writers of a service animal handler may not think about is how often the handler will be stopped because of their service animal, because people want to fawn over the cute wittle baby (who is busy doing a job, keep in mind) and talk about their own dogs. Mod @anauthorandherservicedog of @scriptservicedogs offers readers a taste of what a handler will encounter in a single morning, based on a recent morning of her own.
Your character struggles with an opiate addiction, but now he’s in the hospital because plot reasons. Now what? He doesn’t want to go down the road of addiction again. @scriptpharmacist has some ideas that may help your character out.
Chores: few people enjoy doing them, and they take a lot of energy. However, your character needs to keep their house clean, because it has to be liveable. So how would a character, who is busy with homework and other school activities, help her mother, whom has Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and needs to keep track of spoons, with everyday activities. @scriptspoonie has a great post with some ideas for you.
Your character is finally on track to catch the Super Mysterious Serial Killer™ but there’s one problem. The important clue is this super old document that is about as sturdy as a twig. I can hear the Archivist cringing over in the library. How are the people at the lab going to look for evidence on this non-Google doc? @forenscripts talks about the multiple ways in which the lab can analyze the paper for evidence.
Alright, time to pop on down to the shop for a spot of tea, eh gov’na? Maybe watch a match of football on the telly? Pip, pip, cheerio, head for the lift. Now that I’ve attempted to use all the British slang I think I understand, @scriptbrit has answered a question about slang for British money. From quid to tenners, Mod Tea has you covered.
Werewolves are a common element of modern fantasy fiction. They appear in movies, t.v. shows, and even videogames. Oddly enough, their representation is based little on folklore, and more on early werewolf films. For writers interested in the folklore origins of these shapeshifters, @scriptmyth has plenty to say about various cultures’ interpretations of the beasts.
J.R.R. Tolkien’s Lord of the Rings Trilogy and other books he set in Middle Earth are remembered for their epic stories, the quests, and the characters. But one thing that stands out among the elements of his series is his con-lang, elvish. You may want to write your own con-lang, and that, my readers, is what the good @scriptlinguist is here to help with.
Ask Box Statuses
Looks like everyone’s ask box is open at the moment. Great time to send in your asks.
In the Victuuri family there isn’t a bad cop, good cop.
No one wants a disappointed Victor. It’s a truly soul crushing experience. It will make you sit in your room and think up a thousand ways how you could’ve done better by him.
No one wants an angry Yuuri. You will shit your pants in terror of this katsudon when he’s genuinely upset. You will sit in your room until he says you can come out, and he doesn’t raise his voice. Not once.
Yuri saw Yuuri upset once, and it terrified him. Why he was upset? Someone disappointed Victor.
Iggy how many chain chomps do you have and what are there names?
Iggy: I own two of them, and they’re both girls!
Iggy: This is Bark. I’ve had her since she was a Chomplet! Ludwig didn’t want me to keep her ‘cause we were going through tough times, but I convinced him to let her stay! She’s my precious wittle baby~<3
Iggy: And this one is Growl. I got her a little after we first joined up with the Troop. She’s bigger and a little meaner of the two. Growl really doesn’t like other people, and it took a while for her to warm up to me!
But yup, there they are! They’re the best Chomps a Koopa could ever ask for!
