[process] Stray (re)marks on my homework

I feel like I'm going back to school. As I've been writing lately, I've been asking myself some very basic questions about my characters. What does she care about? What is he going to lose here? Who decides, and what are their consequences for taking on that decision?

This New Model Process is really messing with my head. It's kind of like being a kid again — a little scary, a little fun, a little weird. Thankfully I have a vast reservoir of self-confidence to draw from when I'm stumbling around in the dark.

And maybe my characters will be a little more real now.
