Hello ladies, gents, and gentlethem! As a newbie around here, who just uploaded my third chapter (exciting!) is there any rule of thumb to how often you should update? As often as possible? Once a week? Month? If there’s a sweet spot I’d love to know.
Ivor has been a runaway in the Borealis for seven years. But when murders start occurring, he’s forced to return to Earth. With the chance to learn powerful magick from a magi, will his secret cost those he befriends their lives, again?
Hahaha okay fair enough. I was wondering if you were going to employ an actual theoretical apparatus and take a comedic approach to looking at the power dynamics created by human action, or lack thereof.
For example, in the stupid asshole, you could look at the research behind cognitive dissonance and see how people can simultaneously hold contradicting beliefs. You could talk about why some people are not only ignorant but willfully ignorant and what kind of society based motivations would encourage said behavior.
It would probably require a ton of research of course and a working knowledge of either anthropology or sociology (anthropology if you were taking a cross-cultural approach). but when I read your description I was under the impression that this is what you were doing, hence the clarifying question.
Good luck on your project in either case. Sounds like you are having a lot of fun.
