My MC has already undergone one major paradigm change, but is about to experience another. I wrote part of this scene a good while back, but at the time was unsure when or if I’d be able to use it on this particular book.
Now might be a good time to pull it out and tweak it a bit to see if it fits.
When I first started writing, much of what I wrote was out of sequence; just a bunch of scenes that were flooding my mind. I put it all down just to keep it from getting lost. The more I got into the book, the more linear my thinking became and the less often did scenes appear out of nowhere, asking to be written.
Almost all of what came at first, even though it was out of order, has been used. Apparently, my mind had the story straight and knew what was needed. Even if I didn’t use it in this story, I could have saved it for something else, or made a short story out of it.
In the beginning, it’s a leap of faith to just listen, write it all down, and know there is a reason.
