I’m working through Story Genius by Lisa Cron and I thought I’d share some of the process.
Here’s the sixth exercise in the book.
“why does your protagonist want what she wants?”
Ruth wants Johnnie Magician in jail because he deserves it. He struts around in broad daylight, flouting the law, being evil, and hurting countless people. He doesn’t deserve success or happiness.
(in case you didn’t know, the book I’m writing is called The Centuries Unlimited)
