Jennie Bailey over at Garden Full of Lily had an awesome post and it made me want to do one in the same!!!
I sit down at the computer, attempting to write, lately Sadie's been avoiding me, mainly because I avoided her. Suppose she's trying to teach me a lesson.
"Come on Sadie, you have to talk to Veronica."
"No I don't, I hate her, she's evil. This wasn't how the plan was supposed to go Jen, I thought we talked about this?"
"We did, but to get Jase you have to defeat Veronica,"
"I can't just do like they do in the movies and blame it on a burn book someone else made?"
"Ooo a burn book, like Mean Girls? I like where you are going with this." (insert my overly sneaky laugh here)
"I see that look in your eye's Jen and I don't think I'm going to like the outcome."
"You will like the end result, trust me."
"Yeah but how exactly am I supposed to get there."
"You'll make a burn book, duh. You will make it look like someone else's."
"Oh like Chelsea and Amanda's?!" Sadie is suddenly excited now.
"Yup, and then it will backfire,"
"Yeah I definitely am NOT going to like this," she huffs "do I get the boy in the end?"
"Depends how much crap you're really willing to take."
Sometimes our characters don't like to get in trouble, then again as a writer we are supposed to stick our main characters in VERY compromising situations to keep the readers interested. Looks like Sadie and I will be having a lot arguments, in which I will inevitably win them all.
Do you put your MC in harms way? Do you find it easy or difficult? As you can see, I find it easy.
