Story development, character led!
As the final book in a trilogy the resolution of TB 3 seems particularly important, and it also seems important to find the ending that fits the theme of the books. I have been struggling with this, but a weird thing just happened: in conversation two characters developed opinions that switched things around and brought the theme centre stage. I feel I have to go with the new direction and mood this gives the end of the book, even though it is darker than I had envisaged. This is a strange feeling, and it brings out the difference between books that sit in your desk drawer and books that have readers!
