It’s Tuesday, which means it’s Romance Weekly Blog Hop time!
If you’ve joined me from Veronica Forand, then welcome! 🙂
This week the questions focus on characters.
1. How much free reign do you give your characters during a story?
I give them pretty much completely free reign. Although I love to have a plan, some of the best things can come from the unexpected moments when your character’s take the story out of your hands!
2. Have your characters ever done something so out of the blue that not only changed your story, but changed the tone and maybe even the genre you were originally going for? (Like your contemporary romance turned into a spicy paranormal)
I’ve had some characters do some things that were completely out of the blue, but I don’t think it’s ever changed the tone or genre. Though, it could still happen 😀
3. Do you have one character in your head that is sort of boss over all the rest? Or do you decide who to work on and when?
On my current WIP, I have a group of characters and I do have to say I’m pretty good at managing to spend time on each. Out of the group, there are three who are the strongest and the main focus, so obviously they get more time, but I do have a character with a smaller role who just loves to push his way into focus every time there’s a scene! 😀
Now why not go check out what Victoria Barbour has to say in response to these!
How would you answer these questions? Do you give your characters free reign to do as they wish when you write, or do you like to stick to a plan?
