WIP Wednesday

July 1, 2009 | WIP Wednesday

You all remember my short story plan, work on craft, discipline…it keeps growing, novella length so far.

Sometimes I wonder why I bother to plan stories. They never wind up as originally envisioned. The first fragment, scene, whatever that hooked me remains true throughout the process. But, the rest of story is in flux, becoming–taking on a life of its own as the character grow into real people.

For example, Gabe (current hero) just got around to mentioning that the security guy is his best friend. They go way back. This explains sooo much about Luke’s attitude. But, why couldn’t Gabe have told about their history a week or so sooner?

But, I’m not complaining. I’m just grateful he’s talking to me. The heroine is still keeping quiet about her history. And I just know that when she finally shares it’s going to entail major rewriting.

Are you a planner or more a moment to moment kind of person?
