Instead of blogging last night I spent the 'bonus' time writing and reading. It was great :)
The male MC in my current story is pretty flexible. He is used to life throwing him twists and can turn the new situtation to his advantage more often than not. (Do you remember watching Lucy react to all the twists her plans always took? Awesome!)
They make a great pair. Each takes the lead in dealing with unexpected situations at different points in the story - and neither of them gets their way all the time.
What happens to your characters when you throw an unexpected twist to their day? Do they find an alternate activity quickly and happily? Do they stomp and pout? Or do they keep hitting their head against the twist?
