I think one of the most amazing and incredible things I have learnt about writing is how much you aren’t in control. Yes, you are the one physically writing, but I never realised how much the story decides to tell itself. I never really understood authors when they said ‘the characters didn’t do what I wanted them to’ or that ‘the plot ran away from me’. I get that now. It’s alive and ever changing and doesn’t always work the way you think it will and it’s a beautiful process of discovery.
