How can you learn to live from a dead person? Just pick up a biography, try these: Albert Einstein, Martin Luther King, and Steve Jobs. These people changed the face of our planet.
Now if that offends you, I can’t apologize. The person that has most influenced my life died some 2000 year ago. You may have heard of him, Jesus.
The difference is that Jesus didn’t stay dead and if you can believe that, Wow, what a life you can have. You go on living…. forever, based on his biography, The Bible. Yeah, it’s all about him, even the difficult hard-to-understand parts.
One of my favorite parts to read is John 8:36, see here.
It’s about being set free, that’s why he died. For you and me to be free.
You may scratch your head at what’s next. I’ve learned a lot about living by watching the Walking Dead. It’s one thing to be the best you can be when things are going really well. Throw in a plague, desolation, depravity, a group of cannibals hunting you down, loss of loved ones, starvation, and living dead people that want to eat you and… Wow, how to be the best you can be?
Character development is supreme in writing a novel someone will read, finish, and recommend. Walking Dead doesn’t hold back on character development and neither do the writers hold back on a character’s complete and utter destruction.
Take Bob for example.
Bob wasn’t always Happy.
