It’s a crisp winter’s day here in Nebraska. (I know it’s officially fall but winter sounds more appropriate; don’t you think?) All that’s missing is the snow and from what I’ve seen of other parts of the country, I don’t mind waiting for that. I was working on my fifth book yesterday. I was typing along, happy as can be. Then I suddenly thought about the script I had laid out in bullet point months ago. Taking a look at it I was totally off the rails. I was in a situation that was never even planned. What’s worse is I was taking the story down a whole new tangent which would totally abandon the script. I stopped writing at that spot and thought about it the rest of the night. Should I continue on this tangent and write by the seat of my pants? I’m not a seat of my pants kind of guy. I like to know where I’m going. Then again, it sure was fun. Should I erase (Hate to even say that word) from where I went off script and rewrite it? As I’ve said many times on this blog, these words are my babies. I can’t just give them up. Reading over what I wrote, I was impressed. As the cursor blinked, I thought. Then I had a revelation. I was thinking of this as two lines. Why not make it a loop? I would keep what I had written and then write my way back to the script. It is the best of both worlds. That is what I will be doing today. That’s the nice thing about being the writer, you can make your own rules.
Fantasy fiction is my passion. This series embodies my love for a good story and action. You will find it to be many things, but not boring! Read what you love and love what you read...
