Plot help

Postby jackitaylor » Fri May 19, 2017 7:26 am

I am going to try to be general here. I don't want to reveal too much of my plot elements. I think I found a good twist on a over done theme and some interesting story elements. thats about as good as i can hope for.

I like to make life difficult for my characters. I think that makes a good tale.
I did too good of a job, and i painted them into a corner. haha without too much detail:

I have two teenagers on the run. they have cash, so thats not an obstacle. but they are hiding and running from two factions. ok, they can't go anywhere in town, since people are looking for them, they've already had a few close calls and are scared to go anywhere, including hiding out in a motel, they almost got caught that time. and they can't leave town, due to plot elements. haha. so what can two teenagers do in that situation to kill a few hours? where could they go in town that they might think is pretty safe. its middle of winter and freezing out so they must go indoors somewhere. i really got them stuck here haha.

Something will happen in a few hours, for them, that will lead to the big finish. they just need to wait a few hours. Im thinking the public library, pretty safe, thugs aren't likely to look there, but they will get caught there anyway, at least one of them will, does this sound too made up and like I am forcing my plot to move? or anybody have another idea? anything would help! Much appreciated.

Send them back to their old school. They know the layout and where good hidey-holes are.
Read samples of my Martian series (by Dorothy Piper) and two romances (by Joni Havel) on Smashwords.
Hard copies of all are on Amazon.
