Whose driving anyway?

Let your character drive the story otherwise your vehicle will probably drive off a cliff eventually and end up in the dump pile. If you get a reject with a post it note that reads “It’s a nice idea, but not for us,” take heed they are hinting at your problem—too much vehicle (idea) no driver! See I’m catching on guys.

Lately I’ve been working two novels off the side of my nearly finished work. They are shaping up okay, but I noticed that both of them have been coming from a I-got-to-get-my-point-across kind of place. I don’t feel the excitement of my earlier work and this is why. I have no driver. I have to get back to my characters, let them find their own way through the story after all it is their story right?

I love waking up with epiphany!
