@claire_tucker Pain. Find out what your protagonist wants most and take it from them. Then figure out how this will force them to change and move towards the end of their character arc.
Fantasy is what I play with mostly, too. I’ve tried other types, but eh it just doesn’t go so well haha.
Do you have a favorite of those many bookshops you have found? If any of them are chain stores, can you recommend one? 🙂
That would be fun!
Oh neat! I live in Johannesburg. 🙂

Hi Claire, welcome to the forum! That’s so neat that you’re South African! I also live in South Africa since my family are missionaries. We’re Americans though. 🙂
I also enjoy writing fantasy. Are you currently working on a novel or story? If so, what is it about?
Howdy! You live in South Africa?! So cool! How do you like it there? We just moved to North Carolina.
I too love to write. I’m a beginner writer working on my first novel (I call it my first because it’s the first I actually think I know what I’m doing); but spend time on here with collaborative stories and the like. I love to be…[Read more]
