NaNoWriMo 2021! Day 18/Day 2

Advice: Try writing in several short periods each day, if longer ones are not feasible. All you need is a few 15 minute bursts of writing each day to hit your intended goal. Sit down, do it, and move on. Don’t worry if you don’t write enough in the first few days. The creative juices will start flowing and you’ll make up for it by the end.

Prompt: Go for the block. What is the point-of-view character’s goal in a particular scene? Throw some more obstacles in his way, starting small (minor annoyances) and increasing in scope until there is no possible way he can achieve his goal. Then, find a way for him to achieve it anyway. What did he have to give up in order to win? What is the cost of his actions? What are the consequences? Who or what else is impacted?
