#4 - What had happen was...

This post is focused on a particular situation that your character finds him/herself caught-up in.

  • You can have a limited interaction with the other character if that interaction would not fit very well in your story
  • Think about how this situation is going to tell us something new(character development) about your that we didn't know before.
  • Engage with your surroundings.  Include things from the neighborhood that will help place your character and build the overall storyline.
  • Feel free to add new group characters
  • Careful with sentence structure. Keep it varied.
  • Since the dead girl is part of the narrative, how much of that story is important to your character?
  • Can knowing what happens to other characters this week help in your character development?
