Can you get carpal tunnel from checking your email 42,000 times a day? LOL. Okay, so I’m a bit anxious to hear on some of my requests out there. And believe it or not I’m trying to stay busy, working on my current WIP. But dang it if that little Yahoo button isn’t enticing. And the refresh. Right, need to concentrate.
Speaking of said WIP I’ve got a massive and I mean MASSIVE plot twist coming in the next couple of chapters. I’m excited, worried, freaking, happy (did I mention excited?) that it works.
It’s one of those plot twists that I’ve been tossing back and forth for a while because it could tick off some readers. The thing is after lots of debate and back and forth with my sister and one of the gals from my crit group, I knew I had to do it.
Not only will it create a lot of tension for my MC, but it’ll also explain why some of the characters in my story are acting the way they are. And although it’s going to be a shock, I think it’ll really make people love my MC all the more.
So yeah, it’s one of the writerly (is that even a word?) decisions I’ve had to make. I’m already almost 1/3 of the way through writing this story and am so excited about it. It’s definitely something different and I’ve had TONS of fun writing it (so far—hehehe).
So I wonder if anyone else ever frets over plot twists? And how do you handle them?
