One of the things I love best about writing is when you are in the zone, just typing along, and in the back of the mind you know that you have to figure out how to address something, a really big something, and then you keep on typing and you look on the page and there it is – the answer. WooHoo!
I knew that I was going to have to figure out how to show a bargain the MC made with someone but it wasn’t strong enough to use to start the book and I didn’t want to do a flashback. But I really needed to get the information into the story because it would set a bunch of other things in motion fo the rest of the book. So I just started typing, basically telling what was going on in the scene figuring I’d go back and fix it later and boom, what should show up but the perfect mechanism to share the information in a completely organic way to the story.
I just love it when that sort of thing happens. It makes me feel like a magician
