Questions about the plot. The plot of the short story I started with seems to be taking a backseat to what I intended to be a subplot. Perhaps the subplot should become the main plot. Or maybe I should spend more time working on the main plot so it takes precedence again.
I was recently worried that my main character did not change, but I figured out what she needs to learn. I was also concerned that she was too perfect — that I didn’t put in any unlikable qualities, which is unrealistic — but I think that I found her flaw (which is also the thing she needs to change.) I would like to come up with at least one more flaw, I think, but I’m not sure what that will be.
I’ve written a lot of scenes, but they are not yet flowing together as a story. I am hoping to get on the right track with that this summer.
