It's my first IWSG post for this blog! At my other blog, last month I had talked about my decision to split my pen names. I wasn't certain at the time, but as you can see, I quickly decided. I don't dilly-dally. I'm a bit terrified. Will people follow me here? Did I get everything set up? Is this a mistake? Did I just waste a lot of money? Lots of questions I don't have answers for. But, for now, I'm enjoying the excitement of a new start.
This month's optional question is: Has your writing ever taken you by surprise? For example, a positive and belated response to a submission you'd forgotten about or an ending you never saw coming?
I've definitely had my writing take me by surprise. A story I'm working on editing, The Cure, was a surprise. It was only supposed to be a 100 word drabble. Another story had a character surprise me with what he said. I'm still not sure why I was shocked. The character is in my head and yet I had no idea he would say what he did until I typed it? That's some serious channeling. o.O
Have you ever made a big change with your writing? Did it work out for you? What's your answer to this month's question?
