I’ve decided to give a character that was meant to be only in the periphery, a larger role.
Characters seem to do that, demanding more from what was essentially a bit part.
But, not only in extending this part, the will be a little subplot that I didn’t initially consider but now will seamlessly fit in, and add some more meaning to what eventually happens.
Another hole, it seems, is plugged.
Oddly enough it’s a few idioms that were running around in my head that brought this on.
Take at face value
Never judge a book by its cover
A wolf in sheep’s clothing
And, of course, in business to succeed you have to be ruthless.
