I was contemplating a difficult scene in In Plain Sight today. The scene involves one of the characters being instantly confronted with a horribly traumatic series of events from their past, events that they’ve completely blocked from their memory.
I’m struggling with how best to write the scene. I know what should happen, to be true to the story, and true to the character.
But it’ll hurt them. And I hate hurting people. Even imaginary people.
