#4 Delivering a million dollar monkey

Well, it's been quite a while since I've updated but I have been busy. So busy in fact that I'm on the brink, if that's the correct expression, of delivering my first finished story out into the world. I've spent the last few months prodding and probing, scratching and scrunching, whuffing and puffing and in between time I've been tippy tapping on various keyboards and scratching with an old bic into a tiny notebook. What started out as a simple tale about a bass player in the worst band in Scotland (who are the worst band in Scotland?) has morphed into something else altogether. There's still a band in there but they share the page with some story squatters that turned up unexpectedly (to me anyway). Can you really tell where your story will end up?  If you arrive somewhere different to your original thoughts is that poor plotting or imagination in action?
