So I started in on my first fic since the fairytale one I did with Eureka last year for a challenge. It's the shiny new Star Trek reboot fandom. I mapped out the story like a good girl - plot, multiple arcs, character development, yadda, yadda. It looked like a great beginning and ideas for sequels had already popped up and I get oh about 7,000 words into it and my characters have officially told my original plot to go fuck itself - they're doing their own thing. I love my characters, but am currently a tiny bit concerned that they have (and I have) very little idea about where they're going.

My very first fic (oh how I cringe thinking about it) involved a decent premise and engaging characters who also did not know where they were going. I had a mild panic attack between the lack of direction and the attention it drew, so I wound up putting it out of it's misery with alien pet chupacabras (seriously don't ask, and if you read it I apologize).

My question is to anyone out there, have you experienced this before and if so how do you handle it?
