NaNoWriMo 2021! Day 7

Advice: Let your characters determine the story. Well-developed characters are key. If you’re struggling to outline, they may be the solution. When you outline a character’s motivations, you’ll uncover the situations, events, or details that will cause them the most conflict and help direct the flow of your story. You’ll know how they will react to situations and interact with each other. This can help turn a general plot idea into a complex web of conflicts, high stakes and exciting, realistic dialogue. If you get stuck, you can use the characters to fuel a new idea.

Prompt: Tell your readers everything you can about a character who is cursed by never being able to tell the truth (even when they want to).
