A thought built one sentence at a time with the goal of around five sentences in a week and the desperate attempt at a sensible overall idea tied together by the end. The post title will be one word from each sentence.
Failure to act is a result in itself.
An inactive character wouldn't lead a good story.
Characters must make choices and follow through on decisions.
But if the choices are too easy, even action isn't enough.
Story action in itself is pointless without meaning and motivation.
