So, dear MIF – I think I may have found a way round a knotty problem.
I’m considering allowing quest-adventure to come to my Protagonist.
One of my favourite books is: The Daughter of Time by Josephine Tey. In it, Tey posits a theory that Richard the Third was a good guy. You can read about it here:
A modern-day (1951) police officer who is bed-bound with a broken leg, and bored out of his mind, distracts himself by delving into the alleged crimes of Richard the Third.
The adventure comes to the detective.
Today’s writing work has been in the shape of research. Step count at this moment: 8593.
I’m off to brainstorm this quest-adventure travelling into my Protagonist’s life.
I’ll let you know how I get on, tomorrow.
Love, Lita xx
