Day 2: Why does your protagonist pull at your heartstrings?
My protagonist, Zephyr, pulls at my heartstrings because, well, he’s a part of myself. He’s anxious about change, and wants to know about every possibly variable in a plan before he makes any decisions and takes action. He truly wants everything to be right and good, so my heartstrings get yanked because he has to come to terms with that, and then shift his entire perspective. He learns the hard way that, no matter how badly you want something—whether it’s moral, tangible, or emotional—there’s no guarantee you’ll get it.
