Gimme an E! Gimme an R! Gimme an O! What's that spell to you?
Part of being a decent writer is power of description. Everyone sees the world through his/her first person POV. Letting others see the world, or in this case, a hero, through yours is the trick here.
In honor of St. Valentine, the poor bastard who must wear a diaper and a quiver full of arrows and smite the unwitting for eternity, I want you to describe to me your idea of the perfect hero. What does he look like, sound like, smell like? Use those senses! What does he do for a living? What are his hobbies and interests? Tell me why he's the ultimate hero.
I will comment on every entry, because as a feedback junkie I know how important it is to a writer, no matter what stage of the game they are playing. And I won't take off for spelling, because I'm not a total hypocrite!
To make things interesting the winner gets an autographed copy of Jackson Corners, or as I like to call it these days, what not to do in your first novel. ;-) Honestly, it's a good story but obviously not a polished work. Penned while I was busy finding my voice. Which is why I think it's appropriate as a prize here. I'll also throw in a Hag 2 magnet. I know, does it get better than that?
Winner will be selected one week from today. Be verbose, but watch the thats and justs, they don't add much to the mix.
So Gimme all you got and make me see the light!
