Hey everyone! I hope you're having a lovely day. I come to you with a humble request for assistance because my characters are being stubborn. (And lo, no author was surprised that day.)

I need help figuring out the end of Act 1 in my current medieval(ish) fantasy short story.

Here's the situation. You're a warrior from a kingdom where magic is outlawed, sent to hunt down and bring back the head of a witch who has made an (unsuccessful) attempt on the prince's life. You find her deep in the forest, coaxing a plant back to life under her hands. Inexplicably, she knows your name before you say a word to her. (Creepy.)

You shoot three arrows at her: the first two hit her but she's not affected like a normal person would be, and the third one she redirects with a wave of her hand and it falls to the ground. She says if you try anything more extreme (like decapitation or fire-setting) she'll kill you, but if you turn around now and leave her alone, she won't hurt you. However, you know that if you return to your kingdom without proof of the witch's death, the court will have you executed for failing to perform your duty to the crown.

What do you do, and why?

ETA: You people are wonderful! I think I know roughly where I'm going with this. Will post the link here when I'm done.

Hello, fellow bunny-hunters!

I am wondering what sort of tools you use for your writing. Specifically, I'm looking for a timelining tool. I used to use Liquid Story Binder, but I've since switched to Macs, and Scrivener (while amazing in almost every way) does not have a timelining tool.

So what do you use? Pen and paper? Excel? Some fabulous piece of software I do not yet know of? (I do have Windows installed in a VM on both of my Macs, so I technically could go back to LSB or use a Windows-only tool, but I'd prefer Mac-native if you know of one!)

I'm afraid I keep getting new ideas. Is there an established protocol for this? Should I add them to the list when they cross from premise to plotbunny? Should I put them on hold until next year?
