So I took a break from writing my post-apocalyptic, MM, Erotic romance novel Before the Darkness to spend time taking care of other responsibilities. But now I'm am ready to continue writing the novel!
I feel like I am at the halfway mark in the novel, (about 23K words) there's still so much that needs to be written. However, I am glad to (slowly) get my ideas out of me.
My characters have veered off course a little and did some things that I didn't expect them to do. Especially in one scene where one character's injury prompts them to make a detour. This detour was nowhere in the original outline but I'm not gonna fight with what the characters think needs to be done.
I surprised myself but I like the story even more now due to the little detour. I can't wait to get back to writing it!
