Off on a tangent
More work on the new novel, and it took a strange sort of turn today. I'd kind of planned what the next chapter would be, but when I sat down to type I knew that it would be more interesting to do it a completely different way. It makes far more of a minor character; one who I was actually planning on killing off. I suspect this completely changes the dynamics of the first section of it, but I also think that might be a good thing. As much as I like to plan things out properly, I love it when the characters take over for a little bit. It usually means that I've got a good feel for them, because they're not just going through the motions of the plot anymore.
