After 30 years, there is still no laughter. I am still traumatized. I know for her, it was a great night. It was the party she wanted and never had. Maybe I should be over it? Nope, not going to happen.
So MC, watch out. I have a lot of torturing to enhance you with, but hopefully, you will find your voice sooner than I did and speak up and say NO to really bad parties thrown by your parents.
Push the envelope. Have you tortured your MC enough today? Really?
If you squirm as you write the scene, you are on the right track.
If not, get to it. Your MC will not torture him/herself.
