It’s one thing to make a world, a fantasy land or alternative place where things are different, but it’s an entirely different thing to make a World.
That sounds stupid, right?
Perhaps not so much as you think; you’ve heard the phrase “a whole new world”? (Disney counts too)…
Hey Crime Writers - don’t just have your detectives say bland things like “the fingerprints matched” - use correct terminology and make your writing precise. Here’s a cool little fingerprint chart to get you started.
A kind follower reminded me of that '7 Cardinal Rules of Life' post going around, and they asked me if I would ever do my take on them (that being, a writerly take).

PS: The above are not meant to be taken as ‘literal’ rules for writing, but rather advice for leading the lifestyle of a writer~ ♥︎

You’re in luck! Both anti-heroes and unsympathetic but likeable characters aren’t that uncommon in fiction. Things you need to keep in mind:
- Your character is going to do bad things. Don’t let these things get a pass or come off as good just because your character is the main character.
- Your character is going to do good things too. Giving your character some ‘save the cat’ moments to show that they’re still a hero, even if they’re kind of a bad person, is essential. (And if you want them to cross the line, having them do the opposite of something food they did later is a good way to show that.)
- Your character is going to do things for complicated reasons. A lot of flat anti-heroes are always confident in everything they do, but a real character is going to feel at least conflicted about making tough or morally wrong decisions. If they no longer feel conflicted or at least acknowledge that it’s not the right thing to do, they’re less a hero and more a villain.
