I’ve been having trouble figuring out how to end a chapter in a book I’m currently writing. I’d been mulling this over in my mind for days. I’ve got the entire chapter plotted, but I didn’t know how to close it in a way that would drive the next scene. I couldn’t get to sleep last night because I was fighting with it so hard. Then this morning, I woke up and BOOM! There it was, a line spoken by another character. It wasn’t the person I was trying to make speak, and now I know why she wouldn’t talk. It’s because this line is perfect coming from the other character. It matches the motivation and sets up an interesting turn of events.
Yay! I love how sleep works. And that makes me want to get back to the Dream Wreakers and all the interesting research that comes along with it. Soon, I promise… very soon. It’s next on my writing calendar.
