I thought about doing it. [Potential minor spoiler alert!] At the end of Kyle By Fire, I wanted more action. Everything up to that point seems to almost go well…almost. But as I wrote that scene I couldn’t figure out how to incorporate more action and still have the end work out that way it needed to. For over a year the walk to the warehouse went too well. Oh sure, you could argue that after everything that had happened in the book (to find out what all of that is, check it out on Amazon) was enough already and Kyle needed to catch a break. But that just didn’t really jive with me. For a year now, I’ve apparently been subconsciously mulling this scene over in my mind because now it is more. Inspiration finally struck! As Kyle’s world has come into clearer focus for me while I work on book 2, this scene finally came together. For those who have read it, don’t worry. The final scene stays the same. But leading up to it just became much more intense.
So my writing tip for today is just that: stay true to your story. I’m not just talking characters and plot. I’m talking structure and flow. Stay true and you will find your story finally feels complete.
This is the Novel Mage saying, *POOF*
