My “Emotion Thesaurus” lies open beside me on the couch, held in place with my “Dream Dictionary.” There’s no more room for open tabs or windows on my computer desktop.
I’m hip deep in character development, and I can’t decide what to do with my hero. I’m leaning toward changing him to a her, or making him vulnerable in some tragic way. Perhaps an incurable disease would make him a more sympathetic protagonist.
He starts out a loner, having been burned by love too many times. Of course, in the end, he’ll defeat the bad guy and get the girl.
