Revision Diary: Too Stupid to Live

So here’s what I’m currently stuck on. Obvs, this will mean nothing to anyone reading this now who hasn’t read the ms, but I’m going to ramble on anyway.

My MC has found a hidden staircase in the rather creepy ancient abbey she only recently moved into. There have been a few strange occurrences–nothing dangerous, though, just unnerving. So it’s not like she’s living in fear of being disemboweled or something. Just that it’s an odd place.

But still, at night, alone, and I need her to go up those dark stairs into the unknown without looking like she’s too stupid to live!

In previous drafts, the mood was a bit lighter, but that didn’t work well with the new theme or actually with the previous events. So I’m shooting for tension, keeper her in the mood that drove her into the scene, but still getting her up the damned stairs without looking like she’s too stupid to live!

HOW am I going to do that? I don’t know! That’s why I’m writing this entry.
