Nothing like success to motivate you to succeed, right? Saw yesterday that a prolific list creator on Amazon.com had included The King's Rebel on her list of favorite medieval romances. Duly motivated to engage in not one but two writing sessions as a result.
And was promptly caught unawares when a heretofore background character stood up and announced, "I believe I shall have a starring role for a spell!" This happens frequently--someone you think is important fades into a minor role in a book while someone else takes over. And yes, I know I'm the writer, but seriously, sometimes you just feel like a funnel for this, this Thing, which is your story/book/muse and it's best to simply sit back and watch it unfold. Besides, you can always edit later (although something tells me Aunt Constance will not be edited quietly...).
Great, all I need is one more reason to procrastinate! As if Instagram wasn't enough...
