Hey. I need help with my main character. At the turning point of the story, he was separated from his family (he's a father) and is drawn into some larger part of the plot and he doesn't know if he will see them again. I'm trying to get the story moving now a few chapters on but whenever I write dialogue for this character it seems to happy, or too calm, because he should probably be very depressed or something. But it sounds so tiresome when I just have him dwelling on the loss of his family every single scene, and in his dialogue. Does anyone know any remedies for characters who should realistically be very upset and untalkative?
