I did reread the last chapter of Pinking Shears and made a few minor changes before continuing the storyline. Unlike James Patterson who writes outlines and knows where he’s going every step of the way, I feel my way in the dark. My characters go with me into darkness to tell their own stories. I simply record scenes as I imagine related events from various perspectives. Real life has billions of concurrent storylines occurring simultaneously. People often live their lives ignorant of other lives being lived until their lives intersect. Night walks with your characters can be very revealing.
