Dear Linda,

Do you ever have a story idea and start typing only to find that what comes off your hands was NOT what you originally intended?

In a lot of cases, yes, but the ending is always what I wanted.  I don't start a book until I know how I want to end it.  It's those darn particulars leading me to the conclusion that throw me for a loop at times.

I often describe my writing as taking bricks - the main plot points - and mortaring them together.  But there have been many times I'll be stuck between point A and point B.  I know where I want to go next; it's how I'm gonna get there that bumfuzzles me.

(Thank you, Deb!)
