Part 5. Surprises in writing a science fiction novel.

How far will your character go?

I discovered that making that determination was quite simple, even before writing out the character’s backstory and resume.

I just knew how far they would go in X situation.

I wasn’t expecting to know, that’s the surprise.

Writing out their backstory and their experiences and such was just filler for details, important but not critically defining in how far the character will go.

Do you know beforehand?

Do you relish the process of finding out?
