When characters have guts, or grit, it can make a story more powerful. People are inspired by courage and sometimes use someone else’s to give them their own sense of strength.
Grit is defined in the dictionary as “courage and resolve; strength of character.” Having guts (informal) is to possess that bravery, determination, and boldness.
“Fly high and proud, and if you should fall,
remember you almost made it . . .”
