When all the action turns loose, who taught the character to take responsibility?
The individual is responsible for their own behavior.
Honor Motherhood because without mothers, the childbearing kind, where would we be? My mother taught me well. She insisted that I stand up straight and went trouble to help me walk with a book on my head like a model. She taught me survival skills on the farm. She set an example how to take care of myself in any situation.
When I had to walk to school, she gave me the instructions, "If anybody tries to pick you up and carry you away, kick, bite and scratch until they put you down."

Who's your buddy?
Design and compose processes do take up a lot of brain space.
Soul mates take emotional space. Since I have been married before I know the significant other needs attention. It may not be the kind of attention a writer will give to another. Put two people together that are artistic and the conflict begins.
The relationship is pulling at each person's soul.

When the story ends is everybody happy?
The loser in the competition, war, or relationship may not be all that satisfied.
"All's well that ends well," said Shakespear, who should know with the plays he produced. Authors will persist until they accomplish a good end for the story. Remember the main character has a goal. To end the story well, the character must get what they want.
It may not look like the goal they were seeking at the beginning of the story.

Today there was smog in Oklahoma City.
Oklahoma has had some earthquakes.
Don't share ecological events between places in your story. Sure, the character might get homesick when they see a family at dinner, but they are in the location without family, possibly. Similar events do happen in many places. The events are usually tied to the character's experiences with the events.
The story must be in the now.

What if you are not a novelist?
It does take training for every type of writing.
Interior decorating shows are all over television. The story could be about the life of an interior decorator. A decorator could help a family remodel after a disastor like a flood or smoke damage.
Writers have an instinct for the story.

Last week was a trip.
The hardest part about delays is the story process.
Be sure to put in story twists and turns. You don't have to be a surfer to write a surfer story, but you do have to experience the waves. The ocean currents close to shore can knock you off your feet.
It is said that a person can drown in an inch of water.
Encouraging words to help you write.
Thanx for stopping by!
