We all want to write what we’re passionate about, but sometimes that’s not as simple as it sounds. What happens when an author discovers halfway through a story that they’re more interested in a side character than the protagonist? What’s a writer to do when the idea they’re most passionate about doesn’t fit in the plot? That’s what we’re talking about this week, plus a little rant about what happens when you advertise as Grimdark Harry Potter but are actually Grimdark Narnia.
