Getting in Trouble

It’s not as easy as it sounds. You send a character into the basement with a task that’s sure to land him in trouble, and he comes through with the only choice of twenty that’s free and clear.

I suppose I can’t hold it against the character for acting like a real person and trying to stay out of hot water. It’s just not where I can let him go.

That’s what rewrites are for. And I will be rewriting until I figure out which of the other 19 choices are best for him to land in an awesome pile of trouble.

Somehow.

    I tried getting one of my characters into trouble this morning. It didn’t end well for the bad guy. At least it wasn’t the main bad guy because that would have been a really short book. It turned into a handy introduction scene for two characters. 🙂

    I guess he didn’t know his own strength. Good job.
