Well, it’s finally here. I’m getting married tomorrow :D. I might be just a little bit excited about that… really, not much… barely at all… Okay, so… I might possibly be much, much more excited than that. We have what is quickly turning into a very nice apartment, and all in all, life is going to be pretty awesome. However, for you all I have a plot challenge. Here are the rules for today’s challenge:
Your challenge: Take a movie, book, short story, play (preferably something religious) that you love, and identify each character and significant plot point. Now, identify the three most significant, pivotal events in the story, and work your way back through the plot, but change those three events. For instance, in Romeo and Juliet you might change the death of Tibedo so that he lives. Now, work your way back through the story step by step and figure out how the characters would react to those changed plot points. How would they react (in character)? How does this change the overall events of the story? Feel free to use this as an impetus to write some up a new story entirely, but the goal here is to see how character’s themselves help to shape the plot of a story.
