NaNoWriMo – Day 16 – A twist I didn’t see coming


I had worked out who the murderer was going to be.

Don’t you just hate it when the story unfolds in a different manner?  The current person tapped for the murder is looking very guilty, except for one piece of evidence that was not taken into account.

I can’t say what it is.

And I can’t tell you who the likely suspect is, because now I’m not quite sure myself.  I feel this is like a true life murder crime. plodding through the leads and clues one at a time.

Once again I’m writing a story that unfolds for me just as it would for the reader.

  1. Love it! That’s one of my favorite surprises when writing! Sounds like you’re deep enough into your world that the characters and plot are taking on lives of their own, and forcing you to stay true to them even when it goes against your rough outline/plans. I love when that happens!

  2. Isn’t it fun when that happens? 😁 Yesterday, I added in a heavily plot-relevant magical item that was not even so much as a thought when writing the outline, so.. this is what’s happening now, haha.
