I thought I had my book figured out. And I was excited about it.
Then I had a conversation with hubby. It wasn't even directly about my book. It was about another book I had just read, A Dance for Three by Louise Plummer, and my book changed.
But I believe it changed for the better. I've been writing long enough to know that I find my character way before I find my plot. Which I enjoy and loathe at the same time. This is my question though- how do you know when you've found the right story for your character?
