today i’m trying to work out the timeline of events and flesh out the character of Jenn and her arc. i have her so developed in my head but have yet to commit anything to paper, so she’s more or less undefined. outside of a few things, i always felt like i don’t write women protagonists very well. Jenn by her function could very much be a walking plot device, and i want to avoid those pratfalls of female characters written terribly by men. if anyone in this story endures Campbell’s prototypical hero’s journey, it’s her.
here’s a photo with a glimpse of the work at hand. obviously can’t give it all away.
