OPTIONAL QUESTION: Has your writing ever taken you by surprise? For example, a positive and belated response to a submission you'd forgotten about or an ending you never saw coming?I tend to be a discovery writer and do a minimal amount of plotting. I know generally know where the story's headed with a few scenes already in my head, but I don't always know how to get the characters from point A to point B. As a result, I'm often surprised as I'm writing.
On my first book, I knew I was approaching the conclusion, but I'd thought it would be a few paragraphs yet. Then I wrote something and knew that was it. It was the end, and I was done.
I was so surprised. lol
What about you? Have you had any happy surprises in your writing?
