As I approach the end of the first draft, my characters are starting to get feisty. They’re not cooperating. That thing they were supposed to in the final scenes, that I plotted out months ago, is now “not in their character” to do. Who do they think they are, mucking about with my plot? I’ll kill one of them off. That’s what I’ll do. Then, maybe the others will hop into line. Damn fool characters.
