    Yeah I'm a fantasy person, leaning toward high fantasy. Adventure and spirits and demons and magic. Not necessarily all at the same time, but they all have one of those. The thing I'm working on now...

    I have Scrivener! Definitely helpful to keep things organized. I used it for some projects, but right now I don't have a concrete plan for what I'm writing so I'm just using Word haha. But when I...

    Um okay so first things first: I'm assuming the "tilted up eyes" trait you described comes from the Vietnamese part, right? Or inspired by "Asian" eyes. I think you're thinking of hooded or monolid...

    I think your first name looks unique without being hard to say, but I'm guessing you want to change your surname? Harika Bantu would be a way to "simplify" it without changing much. Or out of the...

    I assume you're setting this around now, based on the names. They're overall very modern. Looking at Sheridan and Ji-Eun in particular.

    Maybe take out the "what happened" part and just put that in the plot or something? Then it could work for fantasy/sci-fi/etc as well. And it's good for post-apocalyptic as it is. No need to be so...

    Ahaha I actually love that. Rebels with a sense of humor. Maybe minus the tophat, and rather than a tomato, with something more like a...grenade or whatever, if it's a violent movement. But if it's a...

    I think any name can be used as a title, provided it fits the story to do so. Unique names work because, obviously, they stand out and set the novel apart. But common names can work too, for...

    Not to brag, but I reached 50,000 on the 18th! ^^ But I've hardly written a thing since hahaha. My story will probably be 70-80,000 words when finished, so I still have a ways to go. But even if I...
