My characters are misbehaving, again.
I know you know what I'm talking about. They're doing things that I hadn't planned for them to do — and they're not doing things that I wanted them to do. So frustrating!
Or is it?
If the hero and heroine are taking charge and writing their own story, then that's exactly what we/writers want. Isn't it?
At times, I'm not sure. My husband says it's because I'm a control freak. Don't worry, I didn't punch him in the face since he said it in his sweetest I'm taking you out to dinner on Friday night, you sexy mama, voice. ; )
However, I'm learning that letting my characters take the lead means my writing is coming along more quickly, even if I do have to revisit my WIP charts and synopsis and make a little tweak here and there.
So, what do you do when your characters refuse to stick to the so-called script?
