When you’re reviewing your scene, you know what your plot is. You want to look at those goals and check that it is related to your story. And what we mean by that is, if your character has a goal that’s not related to the story plot, nobody will care. But if the character’s goal IS related to the plot, suddenly it is interesting, it’s protagonist versus antagonist. And there are some consequences to it.
So if it’s related to the story, that’s great. And if it’s not, it’s going to be boring for the reader. And they’re going to think it’s just an episodic thing in the story, which is never good.
