That went well.
Have been up since six AM today, writing, undoing, rethinking, pushing, and my net gain was one chapter.
It ended with the line that made my blood run cold (and not because it broke the entire storyline in this episode for this story’s second main character).
Just because it was the dead opposite of what I’d planned, of what I’d been writing toward, of my anticipated midpoint twist. It twisted my twist, and made it better.
And I had no clue it was coming until the killer walked up to my MC.
After a moment it said, “And you’re the new captain.”
I cannot WAIT to get to work tomorrow morning.
Today, though? I gotta finish 1099s.
Goodness. That last line gives me a feeling though I’m not even writing it. Fills me with questions and makes me want to know more.
The part that tickled me most was the word “it.”
I wasn’t expecting ANY of the twist that led up to that moment—but “it” gave me goosebumps.
