For my current story, I’m looking for some inspiration regarding mischief.
My MC is someone who means well and wants the acknowledgement and approval of his dad.
He undertakes actions to show his dad how good he is but every time he tries, his plans backfire or go completely mayhem.
More often than not his undertakings lead to shame rather than something to be proud of.
He is sixteen of age at the moment.
Which is troublesome when you are living in a society where honour is an important thing.
(the story takes place in Norse/Viking like society)
I am looking for inspiration since I want to mention some examples from the MC’s past but have a hard time to think up something. So please tell me about the nonsense you did when you were young.
