As a scribe, you have a gift.. Its a gift of endless posibilities which only you have the power to control.. As a scribe you can create worlds with
the stroke of a pencil or the push of a button, worlds you dictate everything in.. You can say you become a God of your own creation only you can
choose the outcome no one else..
But i would like to share the simple things which can make you your own God instead of trying to follow a protagonist with a dark tale..
1.1.1 Overcoming the Monster
The protagonist sets out to defeat an antagonistic force (often evil) which threatens the protagonist and/or protagonist's homeland.
Examples: Perseus, Theseus, Beowulf, Dracula, War of the Worlds, Nicholas Nickleby, The Guns of Navarone, Seven Samurai and its Western-style remake
The Magnificent Seven, the James Bond franchise, Star Wars: A New Hope, Halloween, The Hunger Games, Harry Potter and Shrek

Examples: Iliad, The Pilgrim’s Progress, King Solomon's Mines, Watership Down, The Lord of the Rings, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, The
Land Before Time, One Piece, Indiana Jones, The Voyage of the Dawn Treader, Harold & Kumar Go To White Castle
1.1.4 Voyage and Return

Light and humorous character with a happy or cheerful ending; a dramatic work in which the central motif is the triumph over adverse circumstance,
resulting in a successful or happy conclusion. Booker makes sure to stress that comedy is more than humor. It refers to a pattern where the
conflict becomes more and more confusing, but is at last made plain in a single clarifying event. Most romances fall into this category.
Examples: A Midsummer Night's Dream, Much Ado About Nothing, Twelfth Night, Bridget Jones Diary, Music and Lyrics, Sliding Doors, Four Weddings and a
Funeral, Mr. Bean
The protagonist is a hero with one major character flaw or great mistake which is ultimately their undoing. Their unfortunate end evokes pity at their
folly and the fall of a fundamentally 'good' character.
Examples: Macbeth, The Picture of Dorian Gray, Carmen, Bonnie and Clyde, Jules et Jim, Anna Karenina, Madame Bovary, John Dillinger, Romeo and Juliet,
Julius Caesar, Death Note, Breaking Bad, Dirty Mary, Crazy Larry, Hamlet
During the course of the story, an important event forces the main character to change their ways, often making them a better person.
Examples: The Frog Prince, Beauty and the Beast, The Snow Queen, A Christmas Carol, The Secret Garden, Peer Gynt, Life Is a Dream, Despicable Me,
Machine Gun Preacher, Megamind, How the Grinch Stole Christmas
The cardinal virtues are an important step when telling a universal tale about humanity
The cardinal virtues comprise a quartet set of virtues recognized in the writings of Classical Antiquity and, along with the theological virtues, also
in Christian tradition. They consist of the following qualities:
Prudence (φρόνησις, phronēsis; Latin: prudentia): also described as wisdom, the ability to judge between actions with regard to appropriate
actions at a given time
Justice (δικαιοσύνη, dikaiosynē; Latin: iustitia): also considered as fairness, the most extensive and most important virtue; the Greek
word also having the meaning righteousness
Temperance (σωφροσύνη, sōphrosynē; Latin: temperantia): also known as restraint, the practice of self-control, abstention, discretion, and
moderation tempering the appetition; especially sexually, hence the meaning chastity
Courage (ἀνδρεία, andreia; Latin: fortitudo): also termed fortitude, forbearance, strength, endurance, and the ability to confront fear,
uncertainty, and intimidation
The problem i have seen, to many uses this very gift for something totally opposite.. The curse of divine knowledge is looking in to the abyss of each
soul and still being able to smile..
Ive seen countless of scribes trying to find their madman to create a story of something uncanny.. If the person knows about the creativity within his
mind and still has a single personality, the damage he can cause when simple scribes without any talent tries to mimic his imagination can have
You dont need a unique mind to create stories, you have them within yourselves my dear scribes.. There is a story of divinity you can create for
generations to come.. Learn that one, its the only one we will even need.
