Characters Controlling the Author
I wanted to try my hand at writing m/m erotic romance. Once I started, I was hooked—the emotion, characters, and sex scenes were larger than life. Since ménage romance is my forte, I started with a m/m/m romance. I loved writing it and it came together as planned.
When I began writing the second book in the Coming Out series, I wanted to focus on one of Waylon's brothers who made a brief appearance in the first book. He still lived at home on the family ranch, so I knew I'd be writing a western.
The wrench was thrown into my writing when I started writing a m/m/m and the first two characters wanted no part in it. I tried different scenarios to bring in the third man, but my cowboy was too darn possessive and didn’t want to share. So the book turned into a m/m erotic romance. The left out man, Tyler, demands his own book, so he'll be the star of Coming Out #3.
This is not uncommon. There's a point when writing when the characters take over. No matter what you have in mind, or plotted on paper, they may choose another path. A smart writer will follow their lead because it's usually the best course.
