First draft theory: Traps

The first half of the first draft is often about setting traps.

Drawing of a person crouched in grass, holding a string attached to a forked stick holding up a cardboard box trap.

The second half is about springing them.

Drawing of a person caught in a net trap.

Ideally the traps are sprung by the characters, not by me, but we work with what we have.
