Writer: Midnight Find – Who is Olive

Olive was a character meant to introduce the dating club to my MC. Nothing more. An eccentric character of many marriages – no sex without a ring generation.
Then she ended up returning at the conclusion of the story. Someone to tie up the changes in Tina’s new life? I would love to say I crafted that, but nope. Olive just made herself known and came back.
Olive won’t let me go. She keeps slipping into my thoughts, reminding me she exists. Does this mean I need to write her story? Maybe.
But, I have no idea what her story is. Then again, maybe, that’s the point. For me to just write the story she dictates.
And that is one clue on getting your story to paper – to screen. Write the story your characters tell you. Listen to their voices because they are your creative voice. The voice(s) the internal editor doesn’t hear.
