I love it when I feel that my beloved characters take on a life of their own. When I write and discover that they are determining the decisions they make, I feel a loss of control, but a joy of pride. A pride that I have given to them the freedom of choice and expression, and try as I might to control their story, they seem to surprise me.
The other night, as I was planning future stories, Desi Baron surprised me with her own twist on her character. It’s something I won’t reveal, but it’s nice to see that not only has she chosen her own traits, but also her flaws. It has certainly transformed her story into something great, and her into a more believable woman.
