Since Shadow’s Memories is the most developed story that I have right now, this one was the easiest. The further I get through this class, the more confident I become with this story. Therefore, once this class is over, you will likely see regular updates from me about my progress with this story. My hope, now, is to have this story finished and ready to query by Christmas.
Anyway, here is my Act 2.
Crisis: Selena is overcome by her lack of self-worth, her inability to fight off the Reklans or even escape their dungeon collapsing her.
Struggle: Tep, a shadow fox, appears and gives Selena what she needs to escape the dungeon and the Reklans that guard it. Through him she learns about her past and her lost sister. She struggles to relearn her past while dodging the attacks of the Reklans who can appear out of the shadows, losing her new friend Tep in the process. She gets help from several people who want her to regain her memories, only to learn that some of those memories no longer exist for her to recover. While reflecting on the memories that she was able to reclaim, Selena recognizes the major mistake that she made in the past that got her killed.
Epiphany: Selena realizes that she is a strong enough person to fix the problem now.
