Hello all- I'm a writing a story where a 9 year old girl locks herself in her room after receiving a premonition of her death. I know how it begins, I know how it ends and I know what I WANT to do in the middle, but I'm not sure how to showcase it because my main character's goal is to stay sedentary. The theme is that living in fear is a choice no matter what the signs and portents say, so it's important to show how this girl has abandoned the outside world. But if this were one of those plot exercises, all I'd be able to say is she 'sets out to' stay in her room. I guess I'm just trying to see how I can build conflict from what's essentially inaction without it feeling arbitrary. If anyone has any thoughts or knows of other stories I might be able to turn to for inspiration, I'd appreciate it. Thanks!
