Another Piece to the Puzzle

My WIP has been struggling. My villain has been very good at hiding the motivation behind his evil ways. I just couldn't figure him out. I already knew I had some timeline issues currently in the repair process, but I really couldn't explain Mr Badman's badness. (Obviously, this isn't really his name that would be a little TOO obvious).

Then, at a random moment while I was trying to get my littles to go to sleep I saw into Badman's evil mind.  And it wasn't like a half thought where you are trying to fit a square peg in a round hole just so it wouldn't be empty. This was a missing puzzle piece. It was always supposed to be there it had just fallen between the couch cushions.

I got so excited that I texted Jessica (from our Sunday writing team). It was just one of those break through moments when you have to tell someone who you know will appreciate it. For me that is my writer friends.

Have you ever been super excited to find a missing piece to your WIP?

Do you have writer friends who share your writing woes and joys?


  1. That's cool! I love those moments! Good luck with the WIP.

  2. Woohoo! That is really exciting. That’s the best part about being a writer- it’s like when you’re watching a movie and suddenly something pivotal is revealed that makes PERFECT sense and you’re like, AHA! Only when you’re a writer it happens in your own brain so you get to feel absolutely brilliant when it happens too. :-)

    1. I still love how other writers get it instead of looking at me like I'm crazy
