Everyone has Dreams

I’ve started reading Storytellers Unplugged. It’s a great blog by a lot of different writers. They have a lot of great tips there. On the 30th, Alma Alexander had a great post called Second Fiddle.

Which falls in line with things I’ve been thinking lately. Everyone has dreams, hopes, goals, desires. The janitor. The guard. The stablehand. The intergallactic a/c repair guy. These people are more than the sum of the tasks that we asign them. While not everyone can be center stage, they can do more than just assist the protag with getting to his/her final goal. This is something I’ve been trying to keep in mind in my own writing.
