Now, does this new person follow along with the plot I've planned out? No, he doesn't. He throws a huge monkey wrench into everything. And you know what? I'm glad. While this is the first time I've actually written this character, he's been mentioned, and not in nice terms, on multiple occasions (in multiple WIPs). So, I guess this is his way of getting revenge by grabbing the spotlight and running with it.
However, like I've said, I really like it. Turns out this is just what the book needed at this point. And to think I was just going have my POV send a letter only and skip a personal appearance here.
Have you had a secondary character usurp the stage and put one of your POV characters in an unexpected predicament?
Anyway, now I have to figure out how to get my POV character out of this mess.
