Re: RARA-AVIS: commercial and noir

This is an interesting distinction. If one runs "solely plot-driven" to its ultimate definition, the plot is all that runs the book story -- any cardboard cutout character named John Smith or Jane Smith could be the protagonist, and it wouldn't matter if he or she was a thief or a beauty salon operator, because the action would override anything related to character.

I agree. I'm now thinking that he must use characterization, and just doesn't think too deeply about complexities or development. You can really accomplish a lot in a little, if you're good. But the plot could work without the character making major choices. I just don't know how to make it interesting that way. Vicki
