My character-first session pt. 2

What were your thoughts about the Five Ones and the “most simple way forward?”

PS Here is the prompt again:

Do the simplest thing


I’ve always appreciated the five ones, from the first time I heard you teach it, because it keeps me on track and prevents me from trying to juggle to many ideas in one story. I feel it helps a writer streamline their scene planning rather than wandering off in unproductive tangents.

If we have epistolary elements in a story, where the narrative periodically shifts to supplementary voices but they otherwise remain secondary characters, does that count as One protagonist?
