    When you are trying to record a video about story writing but the Mongolian child slaves in your basement are making a ruckus.

    People are more interested in background music than the actual video what they have came for πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

    I think that the children noise is a bit horror but they are playing.

    Too much background noise; very distracting.

    It would be SOOOOO much nicer without the screaming kids in the background.

    I don't understand, if the Negative Trigger leads protagonist to return life to its normal existence, then what happens after that? Is the story over, or do the other components of the structure pick up after he or she returned home (dealing with the negative effects/emotions/situation of the negative trigger)? Is this the case instead of him or her venturing onward into the rising action/quest after the positive trigger? Advice is warmly welcomed and very much appreciated! Thanks!

    Untitled Story
    I clenched my hands deeper into my mom as I cried for her to come back. Someone was tugging her away from me, he was evil, yet not. But whoever he was he was my enemy.
    5 years later
    I was almost a double digit, I was squirming under my blankets because I could not wait for tomorrow, my birthday!
    I leaped out of bed in the morning, throwing my blanket on the ground, not bothering to pick it up. I slid down the long, spiral railing faster than ever, almost like it was greased with tar.

    my story so far
