A brief note about character development

I love creating new characters.  In many ways, it's like making new friends...and enemies.  I've had characters that I loved become such a huge pain in the ass.  Right now, as much as I love Holly, she's definitely becoming a PITA.  Sometimes I believe they have minds of their own.  I start writing a dialogue between her and Ben, and then she goes and fucks off somewhere for a while.  Even if I'm not done writing the dialogue, I have to stop writing her and make her vanish.  Don't get me wrong, I love this character, but I think she knows her time is finite.  With the heat wave dissipating, I will be able to write more.
