Maybe you can help me out, I’m struggling with my main character. She’s got a great arc. Some challenging circumstances and she’s got opinions and weaknesses. But I just feel like she’s always being pushed along and not really making enough big choices.
I’m wondering if there is a way I can put her into a situation where no matter what, she has to make a big choice. Would that take away from her coming into her power?
There is a scene where she is placed in a life or death situation. but I still feel like she didn’t choose it. How can I get her to make a courageous decision?
What do you think about this topic in your own life, when you’re faced with big choices that you can’t avoid, do you feel you grow from those situations? I think I do but as time wears on, it seems like the weight of the decision fades away; sometimes along with the growth and wisdom that came with it.
