Giving yourself a present

Nothing is more fun than writing chapter endings like this one (from Finish Her Off, due out in 2013-ish), which I wrote this morning:

=====
I pull the backpack onto my lap and take out the photo. “I took this from the cabin. I think this is them, because that’s obviously me. But that’s all I know.”

“Wait a minute,” Gareth says, pointing. “What’s that?”
=====

I didn't plan on writing that. And then of course I had to figure out what he saw. It turned out to be pretty important.

So don't be afraid to bring in the unexpected.
