One time in college, I asked Stephen Graham Jones, a Blackfeet indigenous author, what his preferred snacks for writing time were. He replied that he had formerly eaten a lot of junk food but was mostly just drinking tea nowadays.
He seemed pretty delighted to answer, lol. I treasure that memory and the signed book I got.
Well this is just dang fascinating.
Eli is one of four members of a traveling crew in a post-post-apocalyptic world. Her crewmates are Anthe, Iron, and Stenlo. They go from place to place using their powers to help people out.
Anthe is a healer. Her arc is understanding the Corruption—which I won’t explain here. ;)
Iron has fire powers. His arc is going to deal with his traumatic past.
Stenlo has plant powers. His arc touches on confronting the reality of his powers and understanding how they can be used for good.
So, here’s what I’ve got on my plate right now: I would like a little bit of help filling in a character arc for one of the protagonists in the story I’m focusing on rn.
Eli (“Ellie”) is a tall, east-Asian-looking lesbian with metal powers, and she’s the only one of the four protagonists that I don’t have a quasi-definite backstory and a planned arc over the course of the story.
I will provide some context in the following toots.
