Sometimes there are scenes that keep resisting. What I learned from the Writing Excuses Podcasts was that this probably meant that the scene just wasn’t right.
So, the last few days I went back to the drawing table (alright, outlining table) and had a good talk with the characters and the plot in general.
It wasn’t easy. They obviously didn’t want to go in the direction I wanted them eventually to go. Which doesn’t surprise me at all. I *like* those characters, they’ve grown on me, even though they weren’t originally planned to be there. And while I don’t like what I’m about to do to them, messed up as I am, in a way I still secretly *do*. <insert very evil laugh here>.
