Okay, so here's the question: What author set off your spark of inspiration for your current WIP?
And the answer is (and I swear I'm not being a kiss-up here), none other than Christine Tyler! (Who, coincidentally is also the creator of this blogfest)
K', so here's the story: Way back when I first discovered Christine's blog (and hadn't even started my own), I was reading through basically all of her blog posts. And I was on her awesome post about secret heirs in disguise and pure evil and other such cliches, and she was ranting about character motivation. And she said "And really, did your hero just join this rebellion to get with the hot enlightened chick?", and then BANG, the heavens opened and God himself came down in all his glory and told me that I needed to write a book about a conceited guy who joins a rebellion to get the previously mentioned hot enlightened chick (well, it was something like that....)
But now, a couple months late, the MC is NOT conceited, and isn't even a guy anymore, but a girl who was mistakenly kidnapped ( and may or may not be suffering from amnesia...). So sure, the original "spark" bears almost no resemblance to the book now, but than again, isn't that the same with almost all books?
So what about you guys? Has your current WIP evolved to the point that its almost completely different? Or was your original idea just so dang awesome that it barely changed at all? Comment below!
