My characters are hijacking me.

Firstly, I'll post my total as of Sunday evening.

18,045 / 50,000
(36.1%)

Looking good, very happy.

But now, I'm so in the zone, my characters are so alive, they woke me up this morning and made me get up and continue the story. Actually they made jump ahead a couple of weeks in time and resolve a few issues. So that bit is written and the total now is:

20,240 / 50,000
(40.5%)



Now I will have to go back and fill in the gap, but at least I know the direction it's going with that very crucial scene written, and I also know that my main character has integrity.

To let you know how the characters hijacked me this morning, and I knew I had to write:

It's now after lunch, I haven't eaten and I'm still in my pyjamas.

More long hand to come tonight.

Keep up the writing. I know how hard it is when your characters won't get out of your head!
