Before I begin to write a novel I know what the theme is and have a rough idea of the plot, however, I don’t plan in detail because I like my characters to surprise me.
I am writing Thursday’s Child, Heroines born on different days of the week, Book Five. Sometimes writing a novel is like a jigsaw for which I can’t find an essential piece. That was true of Thursday’s Child until I found the missing piece in the puzzle. Phew! I spend hours and hours trying to find it.
