The story for Book 3 has finally started to take shape, and not just in my head.
Initially I had the ending but that was it. How I was going to get the characters there, or for that matter, which characters were going to make it that far, was a complete mystery.
I have pages filled with ideas and parts of scenes that I thought were great when they popped into my head, but nothing that really grabbed me with that ‘let’s get this party started’ feeling, nothing that gave me the undeniable feeling of ‘this is where this story starts’.
That is until recently.
I was thinking about one of those partial scenes I had in my notes and how I might be able to get Mia to that point when chapter 1 just started to play out in my head like a movie – I love it when that happens – then chapter 2 followed automatically. Now it’s starting to flow.
I can’t wait to see how the story will unfold but I’m beginning to think that, just like with Book 2, the characters are going to take me on a journey that I hadn’t anticipated.
Guess I’ll just have to wait and see.
