It's a coffee coloured world

quick question

So I’m slugging away on NaNo (and loving it) and I just realized something.  At the rate I’m going my heroine is going to be off the page for at least 10, probably closer to 30 (maybe more) pages.  I was worried, then I had a thought.  I’m creating a loss for my hero, would it help the reader if they miss her too by her simply not being there?  At this point, in my first draft she’s already gone for 15 pages and I still have one, maybe two more scenes to write before she appears.


Oh and as a point of reference, I’m currently working toward the end/resolution of the story.

  1. While you explore other characters have them make some reference to their relationship with the heroine to keep her in mind if not in sight.

    (Also don’t take me too seriously- I have no idea what I am doing. I am a Doc and not a writer by profession)
