Even with all the house projects we have going on, I've managed to get some writing time in. I plotted out a good section of the end of my current WIP (and have made changes already!!!). The end is in sight, and I am anxious to get it down, but at the same time I am finding these current chapters more difficult to write.
My critique buddies are all in different stages this week. Trisha is starting a new work, having polished up and sent out her other WIP's. Fiona is re-working sections of her WIP, and Katie just sent me her new version of an old WIP. Jackie made great progress with her outlining and is working on her first chapter.
How are your WIP's going? Have you learned anything new about your characters? Have they taken you in a direction you didn't expect? Right now I have a war going on between two characters as to who is really the bad guy pulling the strings. I think it is one person, but one of the other minor characters keeps trying to tell me he should be the one pulling the strings as it wouldn't be expected. I am letting it play out in my mind to see where I go. What do you do when your characters throw a monkey wrench in your plans?
Next week I am going to change up my Wednesday posts to more specifics on writing. If you have any topics you would like me to focus on, let me know.
