PSA // The Element of Surprise…
I realize that my most favorite RP threads and players – are people who seem to get the element of surprise.
Going in one direction and instead – taking another route. It takes great trust in your mutual writer that they will take your muse’s hand and guide them down a path of terrifying discoveries and abject stunned silence in the unexpected. But when you do it? Oh god…
I personally thrive on these situations. Though it kills me not knowing, I really don’t want to know what your muse will do next or what element will be added into the scene.
We need more of this. We need to save our best secrets instead of letting our RP partners know what is about to happen.
Keep your good cards concealed and when it’s time to lay them out – when you’ve held onto them until the very last second – the punch they deliver is…monumental, to say the least.
Indulge in more of this. Become so consumed in the experience of the writing that you lose yourself within it.
