Ok, so, I'm writing my novel and to sketch out the nature of my problem, here's my storyboard (you'll spot the issue for yourselves...) Daisy is having a bad time at home-- Daisy gets into an argument with her grandma and hits her-- Daisy spends a night in the cells but gets released-- Daisy runs away from home-- Daisy goes to stay with Cat and Karen (who she doesn't like)-- Daisy becomes close to Karen after realising they're more alike than she thought-- Daisy and Karen move in together, shunning Cat-- ...weird grey area where the general idea is that Daisy's mental health is severely deteriorating and she cannot cope alone, except I have no real idea about how to glue this area in to the rest of the story, oops -- Karen goes back to London, leaving Daisy alone -- Daisy's Grandmother dies, and her whole family rejects her at the funeral-- Daisy tries to commit suicide, but fails. She agrees to attend therapy and try to improve. So, as you can see, I DO have nearly all of my storyboard/plot planned out... except the horrible grey area where I have no clue what is going to happen. I had the idea of her going to loads of crazy parties and constantly drinking herself silly, but it seems a bit cliché and I just have NO idea how to convey her mental health... like I said. It's a grey area. I would really appreciate some suggestions!
