  1. Thanks so much for answering my question, Hannah. That was a really helpful explanation. (I took notes.) Funny thing is I actually wrote in my very first outline for this character, "He treats everyone with the utmost respect and strongly believes that it is important to respect everyone regardless of their social status." So I guess I was on the right track.
    Also, I love your shirt. Luna is my favorite fictional person.

  2. Hi Hannah!
    Thank you for your tips and for replying to my question about your C.S.Lewis recommendations!
    Heading to the library to read them now.

    Also, I wondered-- do you have any advice on writing/handling a large cast of characters?
    I'm closing in on around thirteen mainish characters, including villains, and am wondering if there are any tips to remember while writing about so many.?

    Thank you in advance! And I hope you had a nice Christmas!
    Sincerely, Emilie.
