November 9: By now you should be getting ready for another incident that pushes your hero/heroine forward in the quest to accomplish their goal. Let’s say you’re writing a romance, and the first incident was the hero and heroine meet and she overhears him ridiculing her best friend. She confronts him, tells him what a jerk he is, and huffs off. Since then, all he can think about is this spirited woman who’ll have nothing to do with him, and all she thinks about is the way his eyes captivated her. Your second incident could be she meets her brother and kisses him on the cheek, and our hero sees this and thinks they are a couple. He huffs off and she doesn’t know why.
