I’ve been really busy lately. My parents are moving and I’m trying to get into my own apartment before they move. I’ve been extremely busy, so not much progress has been made on my series (I’m thinking about changing the name of the series). Anyway, I’ve come across an issue in working my characters’ powers into the series. Quite a bit of the series takes place in the courtroom and all evidence needs to be tangible and obtained a certain way. That makes it hard to incorporate evidence found while Brianna isn’t human or Lela (Hazel’s new name) is in someone else’s body. What advice do you have? I know there’s going to be a character called “Someday” (alter ego) who gets cases for Dalton. How could that tie in? Also, I’m going to be at the InConjunction this Saturday. I’m cosplaying Kiki from Kiki’s Delivery Service.
1) Not all the evidence would have to be 'tangible' to be in a courtroom; you could use eyewitness testimony and show it as flashbacks.
2) I agree; to show what happens while they're transformed, Brianna and Lela will either need side-kick characters to act as witnesses or body-cameras.
3) Need a lot more info on Someday and Dalton in order to comment.
4) God's blessings on your move. Moves can be stressful but exciting as you think about organizing a new work-space. Enjoy InConjunction!
Thank! What or who would you recommend as a witness or body-camera?
