And then I paused on it for a few days, because life got busy and I was just a little bit stuck on a big revelation for one of the characters. Then, yesterday, I was in my car and thinking about it and suddenly realized what the problem was.
I need to turn my male lead character into a woman. It makes the dynamic with the existing female lead character so much more impactful and meaningful.
But, dammit, I had a specific actor in mind and everything for that role!
Also... hello, internet! You have no idea how many unfinished draft posts I have started since I last successfully posted to this website! I'm still here! just not good at finishing things.
And now I need to think about everything that will change now that I'm writing a story about two women.
