Expect the unexpected

One of the best things about writing is when the story takes a totally unexpected turn.  One of the most terrifying things about writing is when the story takes a totally unexpected turn.  The story I’m writing right now is not the story I intended to write.  Maybe that will be great!  Maybe that will be horrible!  No way to know without pushing through.

As I push through, have a passage from today’s work:

Again Tom was silent, although this time because he was working his jaw, trying to come up with an answer that was both truthful and put him in a favorable light. He was fast discovering that those two things were, in this instance, mutually exclusive.
