If you could use a wish to help you write just ONE scene/chapter of your book, which one would it be?
(Existence series book two) The first kiss of two certain characters. Because it isn’t just a kiss and they aren’t human. So I need to emphasize the importance of what’s actually happening while also balancing the emotions and making it clear that this is consensual even though one character is in over her head until after the kiss.
(Anah’s story) How to resolve a high-stakes conflict scene I’ve included. I’m thinking of turning it into a drill (like a fire drill where people practice leaving a building calmly). But there’s the aftermath of “if this REALLY happened, what would I do??” And I honestly don’t know what to tell my character, so I don’t know what to tell her parents to tell her. Because if it really happened, that’s it, the story is over. It’d suck and then she’d die. So I’m trying to create a way for a better answer to exist. First, I need to remember that it’s a “fantasy” problem only based on a real world problem. (The real world problem doesn’t have a good answer. Basically, if it happens, things suck and then you die. That’s really what happens. Like, if you’re super lucky, there’s a war and you maybe don’t die. But, ummm, the odds aren’t really in your favor.)
I welcome any ideas.
