even before i get going on writing a story i pretty much know how its gonna end and most times thats just how it does. but the other day i was writing a pb story and all of a sudden without not one word of warning the mc jumped right outta the story and said “STOP the storys done!” i scratched my head and said “huh?” then i said “wait a minute! this is MY story and i already got it figured out how its gonna end so get back in the story be quiet and let me finish it my way.”
could you believe that mc got right up in my face and GRRRRRROWLED (hes a big gator) and for sure hearing that growl and seeing those big sharp teeth got my attention. but i gotta tell you it got me a little angry. so i just looked that gator right in the eye and said "IM THE BOSS!” yikes! he didnt back down not one little bit and shot back at me “hey dude its MY story too and without ME you got NO story at all so you better listen to what i gotta say.”
i jumped back sat down and didnt say not one more word. i just sat thinking on what that gator said. i didnt ever think bout listening to my mc before. so i went back and read "OUR" story over a bunch of times and could you believe that gator was right and it needed to end just right where he said.
if youre wondering? yep! im still the boss (sorta). but for sure im gonna listen to my mc from now on (specially if its a big gator with sharp ^^^^ teeth).
for sure i got a good writing lesson from a place i didnt expect it - my mc! WOW! how cool is that!
now i just gotta ask you did you ever have your mc tell you what to do? if you did... did you do it?
