In a futuristic world, I can imagine robot battles would become much more commonplace than they are today. I will be exploring how this sport will have evolved over the next 5,000 years. One of the main characters in my superhuman series will be an active participant of robot battling.



I like the idea of a strong female character who likes to get her hands dirty. When it comes to getting your hands dirty, one of the top tasks would be noodling. Noodling is a type of fishing that involves standing near the shore of a lake or river and pull a catfish out of the water with your bare hands. In order to get a good grip on the fish, fishermen let the catfish bite their hand. Noodling can be dangerous because fishermen are at risk of either drowning or having the fish break their arms. Since one of the kingdoms in Gradaia has an abundance of rivers, I thought of featuring a princess who goes noodling. She would not be a pampered princess in a ballroom. She will be a tough tomboy who likes to risk her life for the thrill of the hunt. What do you think?


As I continue to write the second volume of my fantasy series, I contemplate on how I should portray the outcome of the tournament that takes place in the beginning. The events will include jousting, melee, archery, and horse racing. Jousting is when two knights charge at one another with lances in an attempt to knock each other off their horse. Melee is when two knights battle one another into submission with weapons and shields. Archery is obvious because it involves shooting a target from hundreds of yards away. Finally, horse racing involves racing around a track five times. Based on these games and what they require, what kind of character would you want to win in each sport in the tournament? The reason I ask is because I am trying to figure out new characters to introduce to the story. Please share your thoughts. Thank you.
