    Alrightie. Thanks for brainstorming with me!

    Thanks for your reply @calidris !

    The character serves as a rescuer who brings children to the hospital. He brings the MC there and the leaves to bring others. My worry is that since he is the second character introduced it makes him look like a major character.

    I have not decided whether he has a part in the climax but I know he will reappear towards the end.

    Replacing or combining him does not make too much sense because it is unlikely the mentor (who serves as the MC’s doctor) would find her.

    Based on what I have described, how would you perceive this rescuer character?

    Neat! Sassy characters are fun.

    My mind always draws a blank when I try to describe the story, but here are a few words from my word board:

    child, gray, journey, forest, king, love, lies, scars, work, crows

    Hello, Rose!

    Nice! Well, I have a work-in-progress but it is still in concept form. Do you have one?

    Nice to meet you!

    Oh my goodness! My family and I are reading <i>The Wednesday Wars</i> right now. That is the only Gary D. Schmidt book I have read but it is very good. I also like <i>The Phantom Tollbooth</i> by Norton Juster. Have you read it?


    @olivia

    Neat! I love blueberries.

    Ooo, I have read some of those! I have not read it recently, but I remember liking <i>Stargirl</i> by Jerry Spinelli. For some reason, I cannot think of anymore—I always forget the titles of things.

    Hello and thank you!

    Both of those are personality type indicators:

    INFJ is from the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator, which puts people into 16 types based on how you observe the world and make decisions. INFJ stands for introvert, intuitive, feeling, and judging.

    2w1 is from the Enneagram. Admittedly I do not know as much about this one, but it sorts people into nine main types with one subtype.


    @olivia

    Hi!

    Besides writing, in my free time I like being outside. Camping, hiking, and kayaking are the best.

    That sounds nice! What are some of your favorite books?

    Cool!

    Hi Alabama!

    Thank you. I like to write middle grade fiction, typically contemporary or maybe fantasy.
