The hero of the story – understanding antagonists
One of the problems with plotting…
Many beginner writers struggle with plotting. This is because they don’t have an antagonist. In Writers Write we teach that the antagonist is not necessarily a bad person. The antagonist is the character whose story goal is the opposite of the protagonist.
This diagram illustrates this perfectly. Each of these characters is the hero of his or her own story. Without an antagonist your hero will wallow in his or her thoughts for 80 00 words.

I don’t usually reblog things with language, but this has such valid and important points.
Most people are unaware that symptoms of heart attacks in females are different than those of males. Please signal boost. (Based on this post, information from WebMD.)
Memorize this shit. No lie. You would be terrified by the number of people, even in healthcare, who have no idea that heart attack symptoms present differently for females.
I wouldn’t be alive today if my heart attack hadn’t been “male” enough that it was recognizable.
I’m sweating cause this dudes game shits on mine
GOD FUCKING DAMMIT
not only is this line impossible to pull off but I think my friends hate me
I think that the USA needs to move on from September 11th.
Now before all you pseudo-patriots come attempting to sway my opinion with your “unwavering loyalty to the country”, let me just take a minute to explain things. I am an American. I’m a female. And I was a young girl when the events took place.
The events are tragic. I’m not saying that they aren’t. But the US government and the media make it out to be some worldwide catastrophe that claimed the lives of millions of people around the world, when really, the event only killed about 2,600 people, which in the grand scheme of things for a large country like the United States isn’t a huge number.
Also, we’re Americans. Not only are we extremely self-absorbed with our ignorance, fueled by the liberally biased media, we’re hardly sympathetic for our victims. We forced unspeakable violence upon the natives when we came here, we killed almost 150,000 people in dropping the atomic bomb in Hiroshima and Nagasaki, and we’ve pointlessly murdered innocent people in the Middle East.
I understand that a lot of people died, and I should be respecting them. But while we honor the dead, we can’t have these extravagant 2-hour TV specials reading the names of all these people who died 12 years after the disaster. You don’t see Japan having these insane specials reading off the names of people who died in their terrorist attacks. Yes, that qualifies as a terrorist attack.
I honestly don’t care anymore. Terrorist attacks happen all the time in other countries every day. Just because this one happened in America doesn’t make it any different. It was a terrible thing that happened, but it’s been 12 years. We killed Osama. Why we are still in Iraq, I will never know, but that’s a story for another time. The USA is comparable to a person who still clings to their ex-spouse or significant other years after they broke up.
We have to move on with our lives. Not forget about it completely, but just move on and keep in it the back of our thoughts.
Finally someone says it.
im Canadian and I even felt gulty saying it. but this post is true as fuck.
Even as someone who lost a family friend in 9/11, and doesn’t deal well with the memory of that day(i was in kindergarten) i actually think i have to agree with this.
I feel guilty saying this too, but I think that yes, we need to respect the people who still hold scars from that event—but I think reliving it every year like this isn’t the way to do it. I think that at this point it’s been turned into a rallying cry, which is the opposite of what it should be.
Also all my posts about 9/11 will be tagged “9 11 stuff” so people who are triggered by it or just don’t want to see it can savior it.
I’ll be tagging it as 9/11 for anyone interested.
