3T Writing Tidbit

Ever read a story where the hero wins in the end...but you kinda wish they didn't?

That's because the hero didn't earn their reward. 

Instinctively, we know what's fair and what isn't. If the hero pays a small price but cashes in big, that's not fair. Equally unfair is if the hero pays a huge price but someone else cashes in, or the reward is tiny in comparison.

Rewards can be earned by:

  • learning
  • sacrifice
  • commitment

Has your hero/heroine earned their reward?

Published since 2009, over the years I've accumulated various items of writing wisdom. The Third Tuesday Writing Tidbit showcases these items in no particular order. Click here to see all 3T Tidbits.
