My character is in a bind. The problem is, he’s not supposed to be a bind. Really, I just want him to get out.
A little back story: Nathaniel has tracked down Vernon Archer at a temple…and after their confrontation, Nathaniel is now trying to get out of the temple. Normally, he’d just walk out the front door — but Vernon said the place was being watched.
Now, it really isn’t being watched, but Nate doesn’t know that. And while he’s reckless, he wouldn’t just walk out the front door. He’d do something to sneak out.
My problem is that this isn’t supposed to be a big scene. I just need him to get out…
Now he’s stuck. And I’m stuck.
Hmmm, I like the sounds of that, Leslie. Something simple like that. Now I have to put a ‘clever’ spin on it. How would he know about it? How would he have heard of it?
Nope…don’t worry…wont’ post your comments to the site, Leslie…
Leslie said it right here: “don’t all temples/churches have trap doors for smuggling either people or booze? “
Booze + Nathaniel = good time. Nathaniel has either “liberated” or delivered booze from/to this temple/church in the past.
or the chosen one, although that is can be cliche, it would have to be worded right of course. Don’t post these, they are just my ramblings…
Slips through the trap door in the basement, don’t all temples/churches have trap doors for smuggling either people or booze?
Nathaniel had once heard that door will open to those who had the gift… would he be so lucky?
It appears to the people who have the gift. Now, you can choose to explain the gift, or wait until your next novel.
