There’s a happening that occurs toward the end of my story that I pretty much always knew was there. It’s something that comes up and forces one character to face their demons to save the other character.
And, for the life of me, I can’t figure out how to bring this about. Ugh. You’ve no idea how complicated this gets. What are the conditions (involving medical stuff, uck!) under which they would have to do this? What kind of event would cause such conditions? What kind of event in the story might cause that? And how do I tie it in with this subplot that also needs to relate?
It just seems like normal people know what the story is and don’t come up with things in this bassackward manner in which they have to figure out what happens coming from how many different directions to come to one point to get one character have one emotional event. Or maybe they do and it’s called mystery. I don’t know. Man, I’m tired and my brain is totally fried.
Kettle and I have been brainstorming on this for the past 2 hours, bless her heart, and I’ve read Wikipedia beyond my daily threshold for new information. I summarized my ideas and have put it before my scientific advisor and await her input.
And now I’m going to bed.
