Everything must change.
I’m getting towards the end of this first draft and asking myself what exactly are the changes in each character’s outlook after the events that take place? How does rhus situation make them view the world differently?
For some it doesn’t seem that much. My police officer currently seems really passive. The story just seems to happen around him and he’s just three reacting to everything rather than any decision he makes driving things forward. It’s the main problem I’ve identified so far.
But maybe it’s a bad idea to get hung up on the process right now, not until U’ve been able to write THE END anyway.
