I am slowly catching up on replays, and I just watched Beth Barany’s 7 Essentual Keys session. I had a quick moment of panic when she posed one of her questions in the Spiral Method as, “What is the worst thing that can happen to your character?”
I had never thought of this question and immediately jumped to something obvious. She learns that she has multiple sclerosis. Upon further thought, I realized MS was not the worst thing. Instead, it would be her friend dying in an asthma attack during a race she planned. This made me realize my character now has more depth for me to strive towards and I am adjusting my resolution.
Out of curiosity, would anone care to share what the worst thing that can happen is for your protagonist?
