When the antag in my wip claimed, “I am innocent,” I had much to consider.
My new antag is less evil but this is worse for the MC because the villain’s goals are righteous. There are no gray areas; no compromise or empathy.
Composing the history behind the antag’s resolve became the untended consequence. A good thing actually since different paths opened for me to take.
A big wow, creative-wise.
Another unintended consequence was not so good.
Last night we had our first measurable rainfall.
This morning we woke to *major* leaks resulting in damage to sheetrock, lighting fixtures.
Before the roofing job, our roof did not leak.
The unintended consequence? The act to forestall a problem caused the event to occur.And I am learning the art of breathing deep and talking to myself.
