This is very helpful, but it’s also making writing the chapter outline more difficult. Though it's MUCH EASIER to fix mistakes in the outline than in the draft. So, the idea is simple: every novel element has to answer a dramatic question. There is one for the book overall. Then there is one for each act, each chapter, and each scene. In a way, even every sentence raises a micro-dramatic question, meaning, every sentence turns the emotional value from one state to the opposite. Change. Change is what propels action forward. Change is what keep us reading. But man, it’s so hard to do this!!!
I’m not complaining. I’m not complaining. Just venting. I’ll power through this.
