I have been beating the crap out of my main character on a regular basis — she has a dangerous and very weird job, and she’s pissed off some seriously WRONG folks.
Over the last few writing days, I’ve been clobbering her.
Today, while recovering, she started looking at herself through a different lens. And because she’s starting to change the way she sees the world…
She’s started asking better questions.
Today’s scene was a LOT of fun to write, and I discovered (right along with my main character) something that I didn’t realize was going on, hadn’t planned, and didn’t expect.
But what my MC and I discovered today fits perfectly, and it moves the series in a direction it needs to go.
Today, she asked the first of many RIGHT questions she’ll need to answer to get to the eventual truth.
On Monday when I get back to the book, she’s going to come to the wrong conclusion (the book I’m writing now is, after all, only the second book in the series). But this is most definitely going to improve the directions in which she’s looking for the correct answers she will eventually uncover.
I’m truly happy with the way this series is building.
