So I’m writing along and suddenly it dawns on me that my heroine doesn’t end up with the hero that I thought she’d end up with. She ends up with his brother! WTF! This has never happened to me before. And on top of that, I had already completed a detailed synopsis.
I’ve been thinking about this for two days, plotting it over in my head, talking about it aloud to anyone who will listen. (Is it any wonder people think I’m nuts?) Tonight it dawned on me that the brother, the one who was hero number 1, needed to die. I need to kill him off in chapter one. On page two to be exact. Then begins the mystery, and the scandal, and the real hero’s dark side.
Ooooooo…..this is getting’ good!
