Day 34s simple task: Day 21 of a book a month

What’s this all about simple tasks?

Give your little people a reason to keep going in this world. What is at stake that makes them overcome their fear? Why dose your character stand back up to face a fight they have already lost? Can you have more that they need to save? Is the universe at risk? Have you threatened the lives of all the people whom your character loves? Make sure the stakes are high enough that your character puts his own life at risk. If they aren’t ready to make the biggest sacrifice then threaten them with a larger issue. Your character is no longer trying to find their dog, they are trying to stop a mob boss from blowing up an alien civilization. Write your character being forced to be brave.
