The Venus de Mio serves as the symbol for one of my characters. I may use the symbols as scene breaks and the images serve as a diversion from the very boring editing process. Only a few of my characters lack a symbol, but I may find something for the ones in need.
The symbols also represent factions, but not every faction strays from the dominant factions. One or more factions will need to go rogue for my third novel, but I’m not sure which ones I’ll choose.
