Basics:

Scrivener … main tool.
.
Her main conflict is a cognitive distortion.
He is a T and she is an F.
Opposites attract and make a whole person.
Both main characters are “marrying their unfinished business.” Resolving childhood (past) and adult (recent) garbage.

Scripture provides both themes and scenes.
Scripture illustrates problems both face.
She is spiritual and religious; he is seeking.

The setting is a small town (Kinmundy) or a nearby regional small city (Quincy).

Psychological truths that help me provide a foundation for drama and emotional tension in the story: 12 steps, codependency, cognitive behavioral therapy, Runkel scream free, M Scott Peck, Glasser reality therapy, Harville Hendrix, Attraction theory, Ruth Cohn, etc.

The local Pastor (me) is a continuing character.
