  14. Well now, that was quite unexpected! As a dedicated pantser/plotter in my own writing, I would have to admit to including unexpected plot twists--only because I don't usually know what's going to happen until it happens.

  15. Always, always unexpected! simple = boring just like a character without flaws or imperfections and is just "all good" equals boring as well. Glad to meet a fellow aspiring writer. Will follow as well! Merry Christmas!
