I feel I have stumbled upon something. I've decided to change the sex of a character in one of my stories. It was one of those "What If" moments you have when your thinking about a story while driving around. I have a story with 3 guys and 1 girl. Basically 2 guys are helping one guy get the girl. In the end the guy is thrown in jail for the endeavor. This leads to a total rejection from the girl. She basically views him as a lost cause, waste of time, delinquent, etc. That was pretty much the end of the story. Then I started to mull around some ideas about those women who write letters to inmates. Then I researched websites for Meeting inmates....anyway. Now I'm thinking of changing one of the two guys into girl. A girl drawn to delinquents. Has anyone changed a sex of a character when their story was essentially completed? I feel like that is what I'm doing. The thing is it creates more conflict, betrayal, depth and humor.
