So I realized with Adrienne’s story, I have a question for my readers. So far, her story is set after she has already developed a good deal of skills. Her story is not a coming of age story. It is not about her become a stronger what-have-you.
Not that there isn’t any character development. It is as much character-driven as plot driven.
But. Perhaps I’m too used to writing fan-fictions.
I almost feel as if I -can’t- introduce her, introduce the story, at the point I intend to, because she would seem to powerful.
So, after all the preamble…
Do you have to introduce your character before they become ‘powerful’?
