A Note About the Writing Process July 10, 2008

In her comment about Chapter 22, Velvet Storm mentioned the shower sex scene between Lucius and Hermione.

I have to admit that I’d not planned including that scene in this chapter.  But Lucius got horny while I was writing the chapter and so I ended up including it.  I’ve had this to happen many times before; a story taking a bit of a different direction than I’d originally planned, with the characters themselves seeming to suggest the path a story should take.

When I decided to write this story, I had a major theme I wanted to explore and a general direction I wanted to take, but I didn’t outline in any great detail, trusting that I’d find the way in the process.  It’s worked out pretty well so far, but I will admit, I still don’t have any clear idea where to end the story.  However, I think that will make itself evident once the story reaches a certain point.

I’d be curious to hear about how other fan fiction writers experience the writing process.
