Last week, I wrote my first part of comparing my trip to Disney world with writing. Click here to read that piece of advice.
For today, I will be discussing expectations versus reality when it comes to Disneyworld and writing.
What did our family expect when we traveled to Disney World?
What did we actually experience?
When I actually sit down and put my idea to paper, sometimes my story takes a different turn than I originally planned. Sometimes my characters act different than I saw them when they entered my life. The setting may even change to better suite my characters personality or even to make the characters lives more difficult. I love creating villains that are easy to hate or love. I can't decide. I enjoy when I really like the antagonist for his reasoning, but I also truly enjoy the moments when they have surprised me and made me hate them. I can't wait to see what is going to happen to them. I enjoy writing a story where the ending is totally unexpected and even I didn't see how the story was going to end.
Share with me an example of when your writing took a turn that surprised you. I want to be inspired by how many writers share this trait with me.
