It’s amazing how writing can surprise you.
I mean, it’s coming from your own brain. Your own thoughts, inside your own head, and yet, out of nowhere, your creative juices will suddenly shout,
And you sit there, thinking to yourself, no way.
Of course – then ensues the eternal struggle with the answer to the question “is this actually cool, or am I a spaz who needs to stop writing?”
Does self doubt win the day, or do you let that plot twist shine?
How complex does it make all other points in the story?
Is there any small fact or figure or date or action that now makes no sense?
Does it connect the dots?
I am pleased, currently, with the twist. But then again, anything that brings heartache and strife to my story is always welcomed – maybe not by my readers… but generally.
I take joy in it.
You’ll let me know though, honest readers?
I can’t wait for you to come back, and find this post, perhaps cross-reference the dates – and shake your fist.
