Currently I'm deep into the second write through of my novel (I have a chapter posted in the workshop) and I am having trouble writing a pivotal moment and want to Tolkien it up and call the eagles. My character is sitting in a bar drinking with a huge choice to make and the pros and cons on each side make his indecisiveness to great for me to justify the action i have him take. So... I was thinking about having him have a conversation with Ole Scratch himself (Though it is never confirmed if the devil is there or if its just a hallucination) and is given some good guy Lucifer advice. (The character always sympathized with the way the devil treated mankind in other mythos. What I'm wondering is, is this a cop out or can it be done well.
