It's late. I'm probably not coherent. Need to vent. Half way through the second book and the characters are making me crazy. They are worse than my kids. Stubborn, belligerent, things like that. I want them to say certain things to take the story in a particular direction and they refuse and say something complete different and here we go,somewhere I wasn't planning. Starting to understand why for so many writers "the rum is always gone". Fortunately,that isn't a problem for me,but I can see how it happens. If I don't keep my wits about me these guys (the characters) will run away with my story. I wonder if they know what they are doing. Could this be a good thing? I'm better on days when"thinking is optional".
