Dreams

3e386d7fe4a1be66264c9c7b604e11ceThe protagonist in your book is there to be the hero (presumably). The protagonist will go through the plot, being sure to grow along the way, and save the world. That is the protagonist’s purpose and the character will probably come to terms with that along the way.

What about the protagonist’s dreams, though? Sure, perhaps they dream of the world being safe or of the Bad Guy reforming, but what did they dream about before being thrust into the hero role?

What your protagonist has always dreamed for themselves will shape the way they carry themselves — body, mind, and soul — throughout the story. Will the dream change along with them as the plot goes further along? Will the dream steadfastly stay in their heart for when everything is all over, to keep that simple hint of normalcy in their lives, even if the plot has made everything change forever?

Which is the better ending, for a protagonist’s dreams to grow with them or to stay the same as they were before the protagonist’s journey, no matter how bittersweet it may have become?

I’ll admit, I personally haven’t given much thought to some of my protagonist’s dreams outside of the plot of their story. It’s something that I want to work on, something that I want to explore about their psyches. What dreams will be put on hold for the plot? Will those dreams be waiting when the plot is done?

More importantly, will the protagonists recognize their old dreams when the plot is over?

A Twist in Time

You all know Disney’s Cinderella, right? Do you know Cinderella III: A Twist in Time?

cinderella_iii_cover

This movie is great! Recently, our younger cousins came over to spend the night and we were planning on watching Disney movies the entire time. While we only ended up watching two before they fell asleep, we had our entire stack of Disney movies piled up and ready to go.

Rachel and I realized that we were missing a handful of Disney princess movies, so in my Disney high, I went on my Amazon app to buy a couple, including this little gem of a movie. It came out ten years ago and played around with the idea of the Stepmother stealing the Fairy Godmother’s wand to turn back time and make it so the slipper fit one of her daughters instead of Cinderella.

It was a fun take on the question all writers tend to ask themselves: “What if?” It was definitely one of the better Disney sequels out there, keeping fairly true to the original animation, music, and voices. If you’re a Disney fan and you ever get the chance to watch this movie, I hope you enjoy it too!

Writing Day Recipe

Prep time for this recipe is to clear one day of your calendar free of any social obligations.

Take your obligation-free day and add a light rainstorm to the weather, just enough to gray out the skies and emit a calming pitter-patter on the windows and roof.

Prepare your work station with the necessary ingredients. If you are going for the slow-cooked recipe, a blank notebook and a favorite pen with plenty of ink will do to add plenty of thoughtful flavor. A laptop and power cord generally yield faster results, with lots of bursts of creative flavor.

An accompanying side dish is a steaming mug of either coffee, tea, or hot chocolate.

Optional ingredients include fluffy kittens and sleepy puppies to help stay warm and cozy. Some people also find that soft music also enhances the flavor of the recipe.

Serving size is flexible enough to share with any fellow writers, although those who share a similar work ethic as yourself will most likely enjoy it best. Personal modifications to this recipe are encouraged to gain the maximum amount of writing done.
