I’m in the middle of a script. Hope it’s good! One of the notes I got was, “Make your heroine more active.”
I’m going through it now, reading it and putting in changes. One thing I am doing A LOT is taking dialogue away from the heroine’s two buddies and giving it to the heroine.
I think it’s going to help a lot. In earlier drafts, I gave some of the choicest lines to the sidekick, instead of my main character. By just changing who says it (and tweaking the dialogue so it sounds like the right girl is saying it) it will make my lead character a more interesting, take-charge kinda girl.
A tiny hint, but one that is going to pay off well.
