This is a writing related post that may or may not resonate with you. Let me know if it does.
Last week, while working on my current novel, a seed of a new plot twist made its way into my work. I am not the type of writer that "flies by the seat of her pants", nor am I a strict plotter, so this type of situation is not unusual for me. In fact, this is one of the more thrilling and marvelous parts of my process. The way these reveal themselves to me, is always so unexpected and exciting.
It also the most worrisome for me. This is typically when I feel the most vulnerable, because of the thoughts, and double-thoughts I have about whether or not I need to see this new twist through.
So in situations like this, I have learned that it is best to take a brief "thinking it out" break. Just a couple of days, to see if the seed will take root.
I am hoping it will.
Tell me writer friends, how to do you work out situations like this?
