Be Kind, Even to Your Characters

Be kind, for everyone you meet is fighting a hard battle.

— Philo (or Plato, or Others)

I love this quote.  I hadn’t thought about it, in the past, but this sentiment is also applicable to the characters we create.  Be kind to them, as they are carrying great burdens and fighting battles that we have imposed. Constant conflict and tension is exhausting, the least we can do is share a little bit of kindness.
