Indulge me, this is for a new idea …
Say, for argument’s sake, that your main character, an author, finds out that someone s/he was good to has not only been slagging him/her and his/hers off for the previous year or more but they’ve also been spreading a pack of lies.
Then s/he finds out that while this person has also been riding his/her high horse, passing judgment and gaining everyone’s sympathy that, actually, they’ve been doing some despicable and unforgivable things of their own, including some things that your character (and probably your reader) would never do, some things that are a total betrayal of trust, and other things that would shock they’re so disgusting.
Your protagonist has so far kept this information to him/herself and is wondering what, if anything, to do with it.
What would you do? I’ve even provided a space for replies. 🙂
Thank you for your time.
