A Lesson by KristenMaye

Imitation is the higest form of flatery, but what what happens when immitation isn't enough anymore?


You loved the story, the characters, the plot and the setting, so in tribute you make your own character. Something about this character stands out to you so you continue, building and building untill you have a tangible, complex character who you know like your reflection in the mirror.


One day it hits you: Your character is worth something.  You want more for them than to take second chair to some one else's creation. This is YOUR baby, it deserves a home of its own.


So how do you go about doing this? Its a big univese out there and leaving your little niche can be a scary prospect. Fear not faithfull reader, branching off is not as hard as it may seem.
