Guess who got a new scanner today? 😀
And to celebrate: A sticky that’s been sticking around in my sticky-note holder for a few months, at the least!
My critter, Angela Perry, gave me a tiny little “what if Kindra was kicked out of the warriors?” when she read the first few chapters of Fie Eoin. That, of course, started my brain a-goin’ (I’m southern now, you know) and completely changed the second half of the book. Kindra being kicked out by Chief Oak would fit nicely into the rumors that have been running around the Seven Tribes since her father died. And while the rumors may or may not be true, Kindra as a warrior is the only thing that could throw Oak’s family out of power, and who doesn’t like a power struggle?
So instead of Kindra flailing around for something to do in the middle of the book, she’s now got a goal (she doesn’t realize it until 2/3 through, but Gar does). There’s action where there was self-loathing and a random horse. Now the horse has purpose – so does Kindra – and that’s exactly what my WIP needed. Thank you, Angela 🙂
