Frequently novice writers like me, are often told to remember the consequences of their character's actions. It is something that needs to be considered frequently as it is so easy to make a slip up.
For instance, in my WIP, I had the sudden realisation this morning that I needed to clean up my protagonist. He's just had a nasty beating, followed by a firefight, and has spent the night travelling to another location. He needs a line or two somewhere to indicate he's at least had a wash and perhaps a change of clothes (The dirty blighter).
It's easy to overlook these things.
