31 Days of NaNoPrepMo: Day 27


31-Days-of-NaNoPrepMo-by-Katrina-OstranderDay 27: What does your protagonist regret most and why?

Your Protagonist. We all go through life harboring regrets about things we’ve done or left undone. Your protagonist is no exception.

  • What sorts of things do they regret about their life so far?
  • What are the stories behind each regret?
  • Do the nature of these regrets change by the midpoint of the novel or after the climax, when additional information might have come to light?
  • How intensely do they feel the regret, and do the regreats factor in to the protagonist’s desires/motives or their M.O.?

Action Plan: Write down the answers to these questions, and think about what this might look like in terms of the protagonist’s thought process/inner dialogue with themselves. If you’re thinking about first-person or third-person limited narration, how do these regrets change or reflect in the way the story is narrated?
