Day 33s simple task: Day 20 of a book a month

What’s this all about simple tasks?

What would happen if your character gave up? What if they fail? What would mess them up so bad they would abandon their dream? Who would be the worst person your character could meet right now? What is the worst place for them to be?  If there is anything left for your characters to hold on to, get rid of it. Make sure every character is the worst off that they could be. Take the character that is afraid of heights and water, make him think his girlfriend is dead, put him on a plain to see her, crash the plain into the ocean, have them ‘rescued’ by pirates, make sure he looks like someone else so they try to kill him and then force him to save everyone on the boat. Go farther than you thought possible. Have someone run over by an ambulance. Let out the worst.
