Tip: In the best stories, the main character has to not only overcome the external problem, but internal problems as well. She should change as a person, grow and become better. Make a character chart with internal and external conflicts.
Thought: “Writing is not about degrees or vocabulary or diagramming a sentence. It is simply about the desire to tell a story.” – Fannie Flagg
Teaser: Write a scene where your character is temporarily blinded. What happened? What does she do? What does s/he notice without sight?
