Monkey Wrenches get a Bad Rep

Remember when I said that sometimes you never know what direction your story is headed? I certainly feel like it’s one of those times. I mean, I know where it’s ultimately headed, but this blackmailed dude has grabbed the reigns and desperately wants in on this piece. So I’m giving him a few scenes and letting his story unfold on top of the others. I figure if it’s too cumbersome I can always include it in an appendix or just cut it out entirely.

Hey that’s better than yesterday! And in half the time too I might add since I had meetings as bookends to my lunch. Not too shabby though, and we’re finally getting to see the workings of the “bad guys”. I’m excited cause I don’t know what’s going to happen with them, but I like it when characters want the reigns. Gives me time to take a breather and let somebody else drive the storyline for a while. I like it even more when the character starts acting exactly opposite of what I expected and tosses a monkey wrench in. Those make for the best unexpected twists in my opinion. C:

PS. So glad to be writing again!
