What are the strangest things that happened to you when you were writing or forming any of your stories,plays novels etc? Here's mine- I once created a play about a group of college students doing a project on the meaning of Christmas- they were- a rich girl, a jock, a nerd and a regular girl. I completed the 1st draft of the script and showed it to my friend for her opinion. She liked the but she pointed out that the regular girl was too flat- (she basically was the rich girls friend and while she helped carry on the plot , had no character) After re reading it i realised that she really was too bland, and eventually decided to make her an antisocial goth with a HUGE chip on her shoulder after doing that i ended up editing the whole script because i noticed that by changing her i reaped a gold mine of character and plot points. Eventually- the rich girl and goth formed a love- hate relationship ( goth hated the rich girl being around her, but the rich girl seemed not to notice) the nerd was afraid of the goth The jock made the goth the but of all his insults and jokes. He also could not understand why the rich girl (who he was interested in) could hang with her. He also had a siliquoy expressing this Eventually at the end we leared the goth had a hard life ( no parents, family mistreated her, attempted suicide) and she made a radical change because she accepted Jesus as her Saviour What was amazing that by changing one character the WHOLE production got almost totally overhauled, we got better character relationships and a better set of character development in the play. Whats yours?
