So that’s what the characters for Lovers’ Claim have done to me. I plotted it out as a short story. Maybe 30k tops. I passed that point some time ago. I like the points they’ve added and they do make the story better, but I was planning to be closer to finished than I am.
The characters are driving this story though and I love when that happens. So while I’m going to try to keep to the plot I have if they lead me somewhere else, I’m going to give that direction a go. In spite of lengthening the story, they have kept it flowing. So right now, totally loving my wild characters.
