Do you have any tips on how to write a headstrong or sassy character? Thank you in advance! :)
Headstrong people have excellent leadership skills, but are quite opinionated and hard to sway. These people may not be able to keep quiet when they should and may be quick to anger others with their opinions. They have strong wills and are often ambitious. These characters are rarely afraid of anything and are therefore not brave, but bold.
Sassy people are often sarcastic and witty. Here is a post for witty dialogue and here is a post for witty characters. They, like headstrong people, can be opinionated and are not afraid to share those opinions, but they share these opinions in a lighter, livelier way than headstrong people. Their humor can be rude or inappropriate at times, but they may not realize it. They’re similar to headstrong people in a lot of ways, but more cheeky and cocky.

I learnt a new word and I love the sound of it: kintsukuroi. It is the Japanese art of repairing broken pottery with seams of gold. Kintsugi repairs the brokenness in a way that makes the container even more beautiful than it was prior to being broken. Not a very common idea in western culture!
Instead of diminishing the bowl’s appeal and appreciation, the “break” offers the container a new sense of its vitality and resilience. The bowl has become more beautiful for having been broken. One can say that the true life of the bowl began the moment it was dropped!
Imagine you are that clay pot: celebrate your flaws and imperfections. Remember that you being you is what makes you uniquely beautiful.
And remember: “The world breaks everyone, then some become strong at the broken places.” Ernest Hemingway
An interesting essay on the art of kintsukuroi can be found in Flickwerk, The Aesthetics of Mended Japanese Ceramics.

I’m pretty sure that I’ve reblogged this before, but its actually one of my favorite posts on tumblr. The idea that something can be more beautiful after being broken is so moving to me. I kind of want one of these someday, or to make my own. It’s an amazing concept, and I love the fact that it’s an artform.
