I was once told that the difference between a good author and a bad author is that a
good author can write about characters who are unlike themselves and who they want to
I sort of see what they mean. It's too easy to write about Mary Sue's who have rare

the protaganist always has the same personality. You'll read three seperate series
from one person, and the character is always the same. Each book may be good, but

bother. Big shock.)
That's just about it. Bye!
