I thought I knew you…

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.
