Hey all. I posted this in another writing community, and figured I'd ask the question here as well for different opinions and answers. Basically my problem with the scene I'm working on is the whole "what's at stake" for my character. I'm really not sure. He's in a psychologist's office, and it's his last day in the psych ward (three months are up, at least). The psychologist is actually the follower of both the gods truth and lies in one body, so he has multiple personalities. The part where his darker personality comes out is when he asks Rick if he knows why he's there. From that point I'm not sure where to go, except they're going to have a lot of conversations throughout, and I'm not sure if there's even a stake for Rick. Does anyone have a certain process on how to come up with a stake for a character in a scene, when it seems like there is none?
