Day 137 – One more character was hard to resist

Day one hundred thirty-seven of my 365 Day Writing Project.

Words: 550

Just when I thought I was done introducing new characters, I decided to bring in one more. A single, hermit-like, eccentric fellow is now in the mix. And I think he is a good addition. His role will be limited and short-lived, but he will be center stage during the pivotal moments in this scene and the ending.

Since the first draft of this book is nearing completion, I must say that it felt odd to add a character so close to the end. But this guy is going to spice it up and be the catalyst to bring about the ending. In a way, he’s my closer. I would have liked to write more about him tonight, but motherhood calls so I have to wrap it up until tomorrow.
