That's what I had to stop myself from screaming out loud yesterday.
I was writing my book during last period (we were watching a movie, so I didn't really miss anything, nor was I missed) when something unexpected happened. My MC did something very out of character.
The scene I was writing was close to the conclusion of the book, so things were climaxing and whatnot. I had a pretty good idea what I thought would happen, but I guess that was my first mistake. Things never occur in my book like I expect them to. I'm sure everyone can relate.
Piper totally made a huge mistake. How was I supposed to know that was going to happen? I'm just the writer! Even as I wrote it I didn't really know what I was doing. As the mistake came up, though, I found myself pounding on my desk. It drew curious stares from classmates, but I didn't care. I'm just hoping Piper can make it out alive.
Has that ever happened to you? You're writing, not really paying attention, and then BAM!!! the real plot hits you from out of the blue?
