I've been hard at work in this last week working on my new Work In Progress (WIP). It was slow starting and I couldn't figure out what to do. I had a goal of how many pages I wanted to get written because this book needs to be done in a certain amount of time.
Finally about Wednesday the words started flowing and I was moving along at a good pace, making my word count every day. On Saturday I realized why I was moving so quickly, my male characters had taken over the story.
Yes, male characters. I'm trying my hand at writing a committed menage story. I love the characters and the story itself. But this week, my hero's took over. I just let them tell me what they want me to write and I write it.
I know it sounds strange, but I've found over the years that I do my best writing this way. When my characters really begin to talk to me and take over, then the words flow and I learn all sorts of interesting details in their lives that I didn't know.
I'll see over the next week how this all plays out, but so far, I'm pushing my own boundaries as a writer and loving every minute of it.
I'm sure you have a favorite character, from a book, a movie or a TV show. Let me know who or what it is?
