Adventure? Yes, I think so. Trying something new at 75 must be an adventure. Anyway I have been asked to do two things, consider a structure for my radio play and work out the main character. As usual with fiction one is asked to write a backstory so that you know how the person would react in any given circumstances. Age and occupation are a start but more is needed even if it is not required for purposes of the play.
I immediately made a mistake. I was keeping back an essential characteristic of my main protagonist and then put her into a situation she would never be in. When you give a publisher a synopsis of your book you are supposed to reveal everything and I guess the same applies here but I am very reluctant to reveal a surprise ending this early. I may even change the story as I go along!
As far as structure goes – I have absolutely no idea how long this will be! Knowing my writing style it is much more likely to be 15 minutes than 45. I don’t know whether to write the 15 minute one and add scenes or try to start the longer one.
You know when you write a novel and the editor says it would be better without the first chapter? I fear that might be the case with this and I’ll lose my audience after the first few minutes.
All good fun.
