The Main Character November 8, 2016 It’s true in plays, novels, short stories, movies, TV shows: the main character, or protagonist, must win over the readers or watchers near the beginning. Otherwise the book may be slammed shut, and the TV watcher may flip the channels. Initially, in Starrin’...Loretta Padgett! (on Amazon.com), Loretta is an independent 12 year-old who becomes angry and sassy because of an event that occurs in the first two chapters. But the reader understands her motivations and reads the rest of the story to see how she overcomes her new negative attitude. In When’s Daddy Comin’ Home? (on Amazon.com), Duffy, along with her mom, mourns the apparent loss of her daddy in a war zone, but manages through her deep imagination and her close friends to cope with the unhappy situation. A major hint of her troubled situation occurs in the first chapter. The reader will be captured by her sense of loss and will want to read further. The focus of any story is primarily on the protagonist who must earn the reader-watcher’s attention very early in the story. –Rachell Elaine Jackson
