I wrote a little over 3,000 words today and managed to beginning packing a little bit to move on August 1st to my new apartment. My plot took an interesting twist today when my main character, Lydia decided to make a life-changing mistake. This plot bunny was not written into the original plot and actually changes the story some. I'm not sure if I like this mistake, but I'm gonna keep going. I love it when I feel like I'm the one listening as the character makes the mistakes and I'm just writing her story. I'm letting it go and writing with the flow. Lydia has taken control of my novel and that's okay with me. :) I'll just have to see where it takes me.
How do you feel when a character takes over your writing?
