Filling in the Blanks

Often, the easiest place to find story is in the blanks.

These are the pieces that happen between the large chunks that tell the story. Sometimes these are detours that characters might take, or they absolutely must take, or they are actions required before the story can move forward. They offer glimpses into the characters that are revealed through dialogue and action. As well, they deepen the plot, not allowing the story a straight line, but deviations that don't always guide us to the end.

As long as a character is taking action, they is the possibility for him or her to move into these moments between the moments, allowing for a far richer experience.
