Are you the "fly on the wall" or the "dictator", or something in between? Do you let your characters and story live their own life or do you interfere? When/how do you interfere? Do you enforce your personal views/beliefs onto the story/characters? Even when your characters are telling you "DAMN NO!"? Do you let your characters fall in love with whomever they want, even if you have put them up with someone else? Let's say your plan was to have Lisa fall in love with Greg, but you discover that Lisa and Tim have a better chemistry/relationship potential? What do you do then? How do you control/not control your characters?
