Last week I more than doubled my writing output from the week before, and I was feeling all self-satisfied about having proven my point about lovely and well-organized outlines. And then my main character went and got all SURLY with another character, which meant that the other character didn’t give her what she wanted, so my main character decided to break into a building to get it anyway.
I had not planned on THAT!
I could beat my character into submission and force her to go back to my outline, but she’s so stubborn, she’d probably do it all over again, so I might as well get on with it. Now I have to figure out how to get this kid into the building, nab some files, and get back out again without anyone noticing.
