I’m in an interesting crossroads at the moment. I’m being faced with the option to move house, move countries, change jobs or travel. For each of these, there are a load of potential outcomes and I fond myself paralysed by indecision.
Try this. Create two lists of options. For instance, a country to visit, a type of job, a potential partner, a potential pet, etc. Write a map of what would happen if your character chose one of each option from the list. Brainstorm what could happen as a result of each choice. You’ll find that you have a long list of possibilities. That’s one of the perks of being a writer. Anything is possible and you can make your characters do anything you want.
