The novel has a life of its own!
Interestingly, my novel draft is taking on its own life! The characters are telling me how they want to proceed, and I may agree. There are two directions as I approach the third part...and I am undecided. Who is in charge? Darned if I know. Maybe many writers find this happening. You plan it out, then find yourself in a segue - not necessarily good - but it may take you somewhere more thrilling or of interest to the reader. Hmmm...now I must decide which way a reader would prefer, then NOT do that? Do I want to surprise the reader, shock them, or satisfy?
