My favorite hypothetical story is the one where the character chooses not to act or, even better, decides not to choose. They're still making a choice and taking action, but they are an immovable force at the center of your story.
I say it's my favorite hypothetical story because I don't know how to write a story around such a character. I know it can be done—examples abound—but I'm unsure of my take.
Can you think of any favorite stories or characters that come to mind that refuse to make a choice or refuse to take action? Tell me in the comments below.
