With an idea in mind for how your middle might begin, I’m inviting you again, today, to take a moment to read how some other people manage this.
Again, because fiction is an art as well as a craft the examples you read will differ from yours (some might not fit into the framework obviously, at all, especially if they are experimental in form).
But the idea is to read some stories like a writer (not a just a reader) and see if you can figure out why the author chose to have their character do what they do, in the order they do.
- Does it make sense?
- Does it tell you something about the character (without explicitly telling you something about the character)?
- Does each progression grow out of the actions the character took, or do they seem random? Which is most satisfying?
Here are some suggestions of stories you might want to read
