Hello! I am currently working on a story where I've recently realized that I've made the mistake of having a passive protagonist - that is, the plot happens to them rather than being driven by them, and they are practically just thrown into one thing after the other. Now, I figured that the main reason for this is that my protagonist is quite shy and insecure, and that I can fix it with some character development where she becomes more confident and starts to do more things, but I still have the problem of how exactly to go about this. The reason I didn't put this in the "character development" section, is that the main point here is making the plot move forward. I simply cannot think of many ways of making the story progress, other than putting obstacles in the way of my protagonist, and that would just be the plot happening to her rather than her driving the plot, so that's not something I should do. So basically what I'm asking is how to do some story progression pushed by the protagonist. Thank you in advance! Please, excuse me if this post isn't particularly well-written. English is not my native language.
