"I think prime characters being killed is great. Especially if you flesh out tertiary characters, then the death has impact emotionally, an allows a side character to replace if desired."

"Thanks Peyton. Great advice.UVB appreciated. As for writers voice, I prefer omnipresent 3rd person. Essentially telling a tale. However 1st person present works great for mystery murder."

While I am very good at my job and have good conduct I never really had any leadership experience. I have no idea how to be with my junior Marines how to gain their respect as a leader and their trust. Especially since some were…See More
