*blinks* The Personal Lives of Your Characters, or TMI

Now I know for sure that the Sigfried and Quartz background stuff won’t be flashback in the novel. I thought at first short story. Then I thought I could use it. Then today happened.

Elves all over each other. Not for a YA novel. No, sir.

I mean, sure, I knew that happened. I just didn’t know that I’d be there for it.

Whatever you might think, this is not a softening of Quartz’s character at all. Which is probably why this isn’t going to work out.

Battery failure imminent, so we shall stop after today’s 1360. I don’t think I’ll get to write tomorrow due to paper checking and World Fantasy prep. Maybe I could pick this up on the plane Thursday.

*fans self*

Has this ever happened to you? Your characters taken you to places you were surprised they’d let you see?
