I’m writing a scene in which my character seems to be more mature than I thought she was. We are going to have to have a talk.
Listen, I appreciate how calm you are, here in this scene. But can we save some of that maturity until later? I really need for you to be more bumbling about in the beginning, so we can showcase your growth throughout your heroine’s journey. Is that too much to ask?
And what’s up with you, Mister? All of a sudden you’re all being shy. How I can I document your own journey if you aren’t being straight with me? Seriously, it’s like you need your own Muse or something.
Which gives me an idea.
