When characters get out of an author's control
Over at Mad Genius Club this morning, I discuss what happens when characters develop a life of their own, spiral out of the author's control, and take on new roles and significance far beyond what he/she had intended for them. Every writer will have experienced that in one way or another as our Muse, silly domineering b**** that she is, decides to throw us a curve ball or three every now and again.
I include a very funny Goon Show episode dealing with precisely that subject. Those of you who like zany British humor will love it. Click on over there and enjoy!
