Save the Cat! is a screenplay book, but it made me look at characterization in a whole new way. When I read Maass, my takeaway was his advice to think of the worst thing you can do to your MC, and then do it to them.

Once I let that go, the story fell into place.
Social media sensation James Breakwell 8767 s Only Dead On The Inside: A Parent 8767 s Guide For Surviving Zombies , styled in the tradition of Max Brooks 8767 s The Zombie Survival Guide and The Worst-Case Scenario Survival Handbook , providing practical advice on how to raise happy, healthy children in the midst of the zombie apocalypse, by joining the genres of parenting advice books and undead survival manuals in an unholy union that is both ill-advised and long overdue—the narrator, an inept father of four daughters, uses twisted logic, graphs with dubious data, and web comics that look like they were drawn by a toddler to teach families how to survive undead hordes (BenBella Books, October 65, 7567)
