Fight Write: Your Character’s Weapon is also a Character

No, we’re not saying anthropomorphize your weapon. But here’s the thing, the best way to prove to your reader that your character knows what they’re doing isn’t what they do in the middle of a fight. It’s the behavior they exhibit outside of it, especially during their downtime.

Every weapon is unique and I don’t simply mean that in the way that a bastard sword and a broadsword are two completely different weapons. They may look almost the same, but when you look at them closely, you’ll notice many differences between them that are key to how they were used in combat. So make sure you know which weapon your character is using, calling it a sword or a gun is not good enough, know which one it is, what it was and is still used for, and how it works.

Life is so damn short, for fucks sake, just do what makes you happy.

Compliment people. Magnify their strengths, not their weaknesses.

Not everyone is going to want, accept, or know how to receive your energy. Make peace with it and move on.

Kindness. It doesn’t cost a damn thing. Sprinkle that shit everywhere.

Slow down, calm down, don’t worry, don’t hurry. Trust the process.

Spend more time making yourself a better person and less time worrying about what everyone else is doing.

Find a way, not an excuse.

Religious freedom doesn’t mean you can force others to live by your own beliefs, and you do not have to endure this from others either.

We are not our failures.

You can’t live a positive life with a negative mind.

The more you close yourself the unhappier you’ll be. You’re not alone, open up to people.

People come and people go. That’s the way the world goes. Live and learn, don’t live and regret. The best is yet to come. Look forward.

When you lose yourself in what you love, you find yourself in what you are.

Forget everything you’ve been told and open your mind.

Forgiveness is the greatest indicator of strength. Admit when you’re wrong, but if someone makes you feel like shit for the mistake, move on. Similarly, when someone makes a mistake, be good enough to understand why they did. You don’t attack people because of a mistake. People learn.
