Please help, I've tried so hard. 1. Each day began the same for Shonda. Day after day for six months, Sam would call with new information. Slowly details emerged. A robbery. An elderly women was hurt. Ricky said he saw it happen but didn't participate. Sam was the perpetrator. A lawyer was hired. Court dates wee set. Court dates were postponed. In this position of the narratice, the author misses an opputunity to develop Sam's character by describing the actions during this period of the story. Rewirte this section of the story to better develop Sam as a complex character.

    After the text mentions Sam, go into further detail and explain what exactly he did. Perhaps he's a sociopath who held 9 hostages during the robbery, all while hysterically crying from happiness yet fear. Do you have any ideas on how to add to Sam's character?

    Are you having a hard time understanding the question, creating an idea for the response, or the writing of your response?

    If you're just having trouble on writing it out, what are your thoughts for Sam. You come up with that and I'll help you write it out ((:

    Okay, so I know thats he's dishonest, he has bad judgement, and he's been in jail for six months.

    Each day began the same for Shonda. Day after day for six months, Sam would spend his phone minutes in the jail, calling Shonda with new information. The details he spoke would change slightly from day to day. It's obvious that Sam wasn't being completely honest with Shonda. However slowly, through all the little pieces of information she gathered from Sam she was able to discover that there was a robbery. A robbery in which a frail elderly woman was injured. Ricky saw it happen but did not participate. Sam was the perpetrator, the convict of the heinous crime. A lawyer was hired while court dates were set. However following Sam's reluctance and unpredictability, court dates were postponed.
