[ first post! ] Ever since I started writing my story yesterday, my characters have been calling out to me day and night. It's like I can't get away from them. This is not the first novel I have attempted, and I'm only about a day and a half into it at this point. Who knows if this will go under the "unfinished bin" or not. BUT, I have never had my characters call out to me so much. I have read several articles about characterization, and they often say things like, "Let the characters write the story" and etc... it sounds a little cheesy, but it's almost as if they are real and writing themselves. I just wanted to see if any of you also experience this or if I am just crazy?
