Are you ever writing something and you know what you want to write and where you want to take your story, but you don't know how? I'm currently having this problem. I'm writing a screenplay and I pretty much have the entire story outlined, but I've gotten to a point where I don't know exactly how to write what I want to write. The situation (that the characters are in) is a bit complex and it involves putting myself in the heads of my characters to write about something that couldn't be more foreign. In short, it involves an accidental murder and the emotional reactions of those involved. How do you go about putting yourself in the mind of a character that you can't possibly understand? How do you realistically write something that's so far removed from what you know? I would have put this in character development, but it's just as much an issue of plot. Mods can move it if you want to.
