A Writer’s Woe and Edgar Allan Bro

Last night one of my character’s decided to change personalities right in the middle of the story. I just sat there, fingers sitting on the keyboarding, thinking, “The hell just happened?” It’s not like this is a new story and things are still working themselves out. But apparently, the fictional being thought it had a say in the matter, and now I’m left having to re-work the entire story to fit this new persona. I wouldn’t go to great lengths to do this except that it does fit the story better, and actually adds what I thought was missing from the plot. 😛 I hate admitting that, but hey, it’s art. And with art comes great responsibility. 😉

Besides, sometimes changing personas isn’t all bad. Take, for example, Edgar Allan Bro:

See, this is why I love Edgar Allan Poe!

Not only was he a brilliant poet, but he’s got the best memes. 😀

For being 206 years old, he’s still a rockstar.

Yeah she did. 😉

So for any writers out there going through their own woes,

or just anyone who needs a little laughter in their life,

just keep in mind:

Enough said. 😉

  1. Sweet Lord, that last one’s the best I’ve seen!!!

    Isn’t it just super annoying when those characters do whatever they darn well please? Whatcha gonna do, right? 😀

    1. I would never believe it when other writers told me their characters had a mind of their own . . . until it happened. I was already to kill this character off, but instead her boy friend got the axe and she became a central character, and like you, I’m sitting in from of the computer saying: “What the heck just happened?”

  2. It happened to me once too. But lukily, for me it wasn’t one of the MCs. I still had to adjust the story where he appeared 🙂

    And you know, you’re damned right. Peo rocks!
