Speaking of arc fulfilling, you've done it again! I've been all choked up on the verge of tears for a couple of hours now ever since I read about Bryan's vision quest and his encounter with the deer. How did you ever think of this amazing and touching turn of events?
It's hard to pinpoint how story ideas popped into my head as I wrote. With reruns of the show fresh in my mind, I would try to take little things that had great significance and weave them into the plots. Truthfully, I didn't always think about them in advance of the writing. It was more a matter of asking myself, "Okay, what happens next?"
Well, Debby, all I can say is it was brilliant! The events around Revenge and Recovery stories were real spellbinders, too. I've hardly been able to take my eyes of the entire year of 1879 all weekend.
