Purveyor of Tall Tales.


I’m getting to the stage in my current work-in-progress where the characters occasionally go off on rants I hadn’t expected, at this stage in the drafting process I let them do that, often they produce things that become more useful when looking back over the themes. There’s been a post battle ethical musing by a very old character.

It’s left me musing on life and ethics and what might be my credo.

I try, though not always successfully, to live by the following:

1. You only get one life: enjoy it.

2. Think for yourself

3. Do the least amount of harm you can.

4. Help where you can.

5. Don’t sweat the stuff you can’t change.

I guess these are a combination of how I was brought up, my experience and my rationalist nature.

What about you?
