[QUOTE=Susan Meier;6719]I like your questions...Actually, I love your questions. Each one leads from one scene into the next.
But...and this is unrelated to questions...I worry that it's taking a long time for her to come to the decision to go.I know she doesn't want to but in terms of page time, you're "spending" pages on something that might make the beginning slow.
Does that make sense? (And I could be wrong by the way! Only reading the condensed version of the scene followed by the question, I may not be getting the whole picture!)
Yes, this has bothered me, too. I thought the inciting incident or Plot Point 1 was at the 25% mark in the story. I also thought the PP1 was when she left the Ordinary World, so that is why I thought she had to refuse the call until she thought it all out.
