Your Character’s Home Life

Hello Beautiful Thinkers,

I’ve been hearing a lot online about how Sulu will have a husband and child in the new Star Trek Beyond movie. This is a big deal to the LGBTQ community because it’s still rare to get to see representations of ourselves in major motion pictures. But from a story telling stand point this has me thinking about the home lives of all these characters. The adventures of this ship are their job in the movie not their whole life. They all have something waiting for them to return. Think about the things your character leaves behind in his home life every time he goes on an adventure. Write about those things.

Keep Dreaming Beautiful Thinkers,

The Boy In The Heart Shades
