While writing a fairly overly dramatic scene, an idea came up. Plot twist, it is a great idea!
It adds conflict, tension, it creates one more opportunity to interact with a character I thought I would have to delete.
It means going back to the start in order to leave breadcrumbs. The new idea needs a backstory, so to speak. It needs to feel more realistic, more deeply connected to the main plot, and not out-of-the-blue, what-the-heck, how-convenient-writer filler scenes.
It is so exciting though!
Will the idea still ne that awesome tomorrow? Don’y know.
But, it’s boosting my writing motivation, so for now, it’s just a great way to kick off the writing week.
After skipping last night writing session, it feels good to be back on track and super excited about the book again.
Until tomorrow, dear writer friends…
