This will be very short. I love when characters escape the boundaries of my plans. It means that my mind has breathed life into them and that they can surprise me. Nothing makes me happier when I'm writing, even if that change knocks my story completely off track.
We work with mental clay and make our little golems. If they take on a life of their own, that is merely a sign that we are doing something right,

When Characters go Wild!
Posted by James A. Moore
I write fiction, a little of everything and a lot of horror. I've written novels, comic books, roleplaying game supplements, short stories, novellas and oodles of essays on whatever strikes my fancy. That might change depending on my mood and the publishing industry. Things are getting stranger and stranger in the wonderful world of publishing and that means I get to have fun sorting through the chaos (with all the other writer-types). I have a website. This isn't it. This is where you can likely expect me to talk about upcoming projects and occasionally expect a rant or two. Not too many rants. Those take a lot of energy. In addition to writing I work as a barista, because I still haven't decided to quit my day job. Opinions are always welcome.
