Create Big Obstacles

Create Big Obstacles: the goal is to create empathy with readers as soon as possible, and one of the ways to do that is to show what the character is up against. If the hero has a rough road ahead, the reader makes allowances for his behavior, as long as he doesn’t wallow in gloom and doom. It isn’t hardship that creates empathy…it’s how a character behaves despite that hardship, giving us a window into who he really is.
