Today, I’m visiting with Darlene Deluca, an author who writes women’s fiction and contemporary romance. She delights in exploring relationships – what keeps people together, what drives them apart? She released her debut novel, “Unexpected Legacy” in January of 2013, and has issued several other books since then. She joins us today to talk about ‘formulas’ when writing, the relate-ability of her characters, and ‘wrapping up loose ends’ when writing a book. Join us to hear more.

I was writing a character redemption fic for the 2015 Nano then the character went and redeemed himself on the show... Now I've lost the drive to finish my story because canon satisfied me.
Also, Civil War is later this year and I'm definitely scared to see cause it's messing with my OTP.
So, here's my question - have you ever been cock blocked by canon? Are there ways to work around or push through it? Is it okay to just let the story go if you've lost the passion for it?
I recommend you also listen to: Short & Junk: Canon is for Pussies

Danny Gardner impressed audiences with his performance on the 3rd season of HBO’s Def Comedy Jam (All-Stars Vol. 12). He has enjoyed a career as an actor, director and screenwriter.

Danny is also the one of the rotating hosts on NOIR ON THE RADIO in the Authors on the Air Global Radio Network. From Danny: " When I was first learning how things work in published fiction, I made note of behavior. I’m a multi-talent with a delivery that can easily fill the room; however, the readings I attended seemed like sober affairs and no place for a ham. An author is introduced and then reads from his or her own work, which is normally followed by a polite Q&A session. Books are signed and attendees disperse. To this old performer, it’s rather straightforward and appropriate, as it’s a lot to ask someone to take a chance on a book."
