As a writer you plan things so much. You plan the events of a book. You plan the character development. You plan every detail down to the dialogue. And once in a while it happens. You get bored. There are no surprises left. That is the time you go off script and add a new twist to the plot. It freshens it up and gets the creative juices going again. Some of my favorite moments in my books were off script. In the first book, the lumberjacks were a spur of the moment addition. They fit into the story quite well. They saved Linvin’s Company and they in turn solved their problem with the Trogoandras. Later in the book I decided to finally have Rander cross the line and get punched out. I knew Linvin was supposed to be above such things but the reader in me couldn’t take it anymore. Rander had to go down. Breaking away from the script on these precious moments takes away the doldrums of everyday writing and reinvigorates the mind. Writing is about planning but it is about having fun too.
