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.
