Character Depth

Last night as I was writing a scene with Rachel and Enzo from Time Control, the scene changed course while typing and started to write itself. Her mother called while she was out with Enzo, asking where they were and when she would return home.

Initially Rachel’s parents were pretty laid back with her schedule, but the character wanted more control over Rachel, especially since she is a bit impulsive. The scene where Enzo meets her parents flowed nicely around one o’clock in the morning. I love the tension this created between mother and daughter.

This short scene didn’t add a whole lot to my word count, but it certainly helped me move on from a rough spot where I sat in my chair and just stared at my computer screen.When Rachel travels to the future, her parents think she’s at a friends house. And when things don’t go as planned, she turns to someone else for help.
