Those who do not know themselves are truly alone in the world.
Alza, alone once again. A mirror of where she was at the beginning of Part One, she finds herself lost and alone. However, things have changed since her arrival in the glade. She has companions. She has a goal.
She will not lie down and die. She will not lose her stride.
She will persevere, no matter what.
As with Barsch, I wrote this scene to emphasize Alza’s personality and further develop her character. I tried to write it in a way that showed her strengths and her weaknesses. I wanted to draw a parallel to where she had been, both mentally and physically, when we first met her. In doing this, I wanted to show how she had grown in the short time we have known her. Only time will tell what this development will lead to…
Thank you for listening, the next Behind the Scenes is “The Woman With Sapphire Eyes”, look forward to it!
And remember, Never Lose Your Stride!
