This challenge went like this: Sometimes our plots get away from us and our characters take us on their own adventure. Describe one such bunny trail that your characters insisted you go down.
I must admit: that happens. Even to an obsessed plotter / outliner like me. This time I was reminded of Filip, who suddenly showed talents I had not forseen. My answer went like this:
My three MC's (Filip, Nora, Josef) happened to find themselves in a maze. They're supposed to get lost and away from each other and .... plot-things. Then Filip looks up at the 10 meters high walls and says "I bet I could climb it." Turns out he's a rock climber, so he sets off up ... *groans* That was NOT in the plot and I don't know ANYTHING about rock climbing.Seems like that was a problem big enough to award me with a winner's badge. I'll wear it with pride!
