Every now and then, a new character will push their way to the front of the line. I write characters. That's one of my strengths as a writer. I guess that's why I also enjoy writing plays.
I have notebooks FILLED with characters, bits of dialogue, descriptions, names---I LOVE naming characters.
In my mystery fiction, some of these characters are a bit more feisty than others. A new one just emerged this week----Sister Heliotrope Barnhart. Hard to tell what she'll be getting up to, but she did write a new signature line for me. For which I thank her. :-)
Of course, she curses a bit, which I would never do. But I know better than to CENSOR her. She wouldn't take kindly to that.
