I hate when this happens – I am mere chapters away from The End in my current novel, slowing down a bit because I start to feel funny around this time, every time – and then it happens. There I am, in the bathroom, minding my own business and contemplating how this next chapter needs to start, when suddenly BAM!
I get this new idea for a tension-building twist.
Right out of left field, this one. And I admit, it would be cool. But there are logistical issues, can it happen logically or would this be a big stretch – one of those “Duex Ex Machina” nightmares?
I dunno. And that makes me nuts, becuase NOW I have to sit here and contemplate it all, see if it will fit, if it won’t fit – and oh Crap, I’ve just had another twisting version of the idea pop up.
*wanders off to sit and THINKTHINKTHINK instead of write, dammit*
