I’ve always had a vivid imagination. I guess that is why I like to read and now, to write. Yesterday I was working on the fourth part of my family sage, Matty’s Summer, when suddenly a romance I hadn’t really thought about bloomed right before my eyes. Apparently two of my characters had their own ideas about the way they wanted the story to go. Talk about a story taking off on it’s own. It’s kind of cool and certainly a “novel” experience (has, ha, pun intended) for me.
Has it ever happened to any other writers? I wonder. Post your thoughts below. I’d love to hear what you have to say.
On a side note, some of my colleagues and I have been discussing whether or not there can be sexual tension (no overt sexual acts) in an historical inspirational novel for young adults and older. I’d love to hear your comments on that thought too.
