I don't really look for these kinds of people,
a dude who read one my stories remarked, "there is no hero, no one to root for, no one likable." I thought ughh. I didn't mean for the character to be likable or cared if the reader is rooting for someone. I don't root for people in the books that I read.
It just never occured to me at all, I needed for a hero.
But, I think about it: everyone seems to want a hero. Well mostly everyone.
I am not one of these though
there are people who are admirable, do things well I suppose
maybe i even look up to them.
But a hero?
It never really occurred to me
to look around a see a bunch of people walking around filled: hubris, arrogance, pride, fashion, foolish notions and caring waaaay too much about what others think of them.
How could any one find a hero in this crowd?
