Happy Monday All,
The manuscripts I'm working on have something to do with another story I wrote. I hadn't meant for this to happen. I thought the other story would be a "stand alone". It didn't morph into a series (so far), however it's got "companion novels" going now. Two characters from the manuscript already have their own stories in the works--and another is lurking in the background.
In other words, my characters are taking over. I'm being sucked into the world I created without too much of a fight, but it's all rather ironic.
I thought, "Okay, get this one done, and work on the other one I really was hoping to fix up."
Instead, I'm back in the world and other characters have bubbled up to say they have a story for me to tell.
Several people have told me this happens and my Critique Partner even requested I write another character's story (so far that isn't going to happen--however, you never know what the future holds).
So, anyone else get invaded and taken over by their stories? I'm not complaining, I'm just feel like laughing--I'm all rather surprised by it.
Sometimes the unexpected is a gift :-)
Have A Marvelous Monday!
