I got into a fight with my protag the other day and after it was all said and done she won the battle...but I won the war!!
I realized the big tug-o-war match we were having was because I wanted her to react the way I would react.
I've been learning through a tedious process, that when we as writers really come out of our shell, one thing we will do, is let our characters go off into this big ole' world on their own and be who they were meant to be.
So yeah, I shed a few tears, but in the end, I think I grew a little more as a writer.
What about you, do you ever get into fist fights with your characters because you want them to do something they wouldn't really do?
Just a little update: I haven't forgotten about my agent spotlights. I will be starting them soon, so stay tuned!
