When an earthquake infests an apartment complex with fast-breeding spiders, a young entomologist's plan to save the residents means forcing a war veteran survivalist from his home.
Rewording may make the pace better.” Suggestions?
Is forcing one person from their home the main trust of the story or just one of the obstacles?” The main objective is to save the residents, which if the entomologist does not achieve this, his plan will not work. As such, it’s a pretty important obstacle.
What makes forcing this person out so hard?” I think it’s pretty clear the entomologist can’t save the residents if one of them doesn’t want to leave.
Why do you call it out specifically…?” If the resident doesn’t leave, the plan won’t work, ergo ‘can’t save the residents’.
But as I said in the beginning, if you think rewording may make the pace better, then I am open to any and all suggestions…
