The question I've always had is how my characters seem to develop minds of their own?!?

 

In my in-progress fantasy story, I had a character who was dead. Him being dead was the impetus of the plot. Then he flat-out decided he was going to be alive and that THAT would be the impetus for the plot. 

 

Am I crazy?! 😯😆

This is the paradox of writing. Numerous "experts" warn newbies to plot out their story, to outline it, to have a firm grasp of where the story is going. That's a MUST if you wish to be a popular published writer. And then ... there are those whose story will not allow that to happen. By the middle of the story, the outline can't be reached even by a detour and an extension ladder.

I write Christian devotions and essays. My topics come from the Bible and from present-day life. I know I write to a special niche of readers.  Sometimes it is difficult to find a way to address a topic for my blog and for the column I write.
