I've been working on a novel for years. It's an elaborate fantasy about a young man that wants to become a published author. You know the deal, one of those books about a writer wanting to become a writer. The first draft is done. At this point, I am re-writing the weaker parts and editing the entire thing. I've run away from this part early on in the novel. Five chapters in, he gets a publishing deal. So anyway, this character has been dying to get this deal. He hates his literary agent because he feels neglected and because she seems to work harder for her other clients. Five chapters in, I want there to be some kind of reaction. Like an impact. I mean, he wants this publishing deal so badly, right? When he hears about it, it's almost on a whim. His literary agent gets angry at him for meeting with a publisher behind her back, and then voila, she sells the rights to his novel to a publisher. I'm looking for a realistic reaction to success. I hope I don't sound like "write this part for me." I'm just looking for an idea or two. Something to get me going because this point in my novel is setting me back and frustrating me.
