I’m still working on the piece I referred to in my earlier post, “Tangled.” The interesting thing is now my characters are talking to each other again, but they are not at all who I thought they were.
I’m re-writing the dialogue and they’re saying things I never thought they’d say.
And they’re doing things I never thought they’d do.
They are all pleasant surprises because, in the end, I think it will all make for a much more interesting story.
But just like in real life, can you really know someone? Can you really know everything about your characters?
Even if you do a comprehensive, thorough character sketch, can they still surprise you?
I hope so!
I can’t wait to get to know my characters more.
