I've been far away from my WiP for a little while now, but occasionally I think of her. I consider little details I want to add, usually nuances to characters. I also wonder if I'll like her as much when I get her back as I did when I sent her off to my critique buddy.
Lately I've been thinking about her ending. It's different than her original ending.
Different than the second ending, too.
In the third rewrite, my characters decided for themselves how they wanted things to be, and I let them have their way.
Is that okay?
What do you think? Should I have kept strict control of them? Or let them decide for themselves?
How do you handle this in your own projects?
