Hello everyone and welcome back to Life of Heritage Corner! Today, I have another post on writing themes! (You can read my first one here!) Let’s hop right in!
So I’m a little late jumping on the theme band wagon. A Song of Home was only the second book I’ve written where I had it decided before I started writing it. And that theme was duty.
When we think of duty, or at least when I think of it, the first thing that comes to mind is a soldier, serving his country, risking his life, because it is his duty to keep the fighting from harming us. He is the sheepdog, fighting off the wolves that would love nothing more than to ravage the herd. Another image that come to mind is that of a policeman. It is his duty to protect us from harm. Even when the sheep fool themselves into thinking he is the wolf and the wolf is the sheepdog, he risks his life to keep us safe.
But soldiers and policemen aren’t the only ones with Duties. Here’s a list of ideas for incorporating Duty into your story!
These are just a few ideas. How can you depict Duty in your work in progress?
Have a Blessed Day!
