I really don't want to discuss the plot of my novel, but feel I really need some outside input on this as I think I can sometimes become a little blinkered and blind to what the logical course of action would be, especially when I've already decided in my head what the character is going to do. Anyway, if you can read this and put yourself in a kind of 'what would I do' state of mind. You're on the run from a drug-dealing loan shark, with a friend who has had a tracker implant (the villain has a GPS which pinpoints the tracker's location). You stop off at a motel and perform a DIY procedure to remove the tracker. Once you've dug this thing out, you discover it's virtually indestructible. What do you do? There are a few (seemingly) obvious courses of action, and I'm not sure the one I've chosen is one of them. As it stands, my MC locks his recovering friend in the motel room, then gets in the car with the tracker with the intention of driving out into the middle of nowhere and throwing the thing into a river or even just the bushes... anywhere to throw the loan shark off their tracks. And then I began to wonder if that was all a bit silly. Would it not make more sense to bundle his friend into the car, then continue their escape and simply toss the tracker out of the window along the way? My thinking for the way I've written it so far, is that if he heads off, back off in the direction they came, making a few diversion here and there, he is effectively leading the loan shark on a wild goose chase, rather than just dumping the tracker en route.
