I found a new character yesterday.
I wasn't expecting that. I mean, I'm in editing! I wasn't expecting that rewrites would birth NEW people to deal with.
This book-writing thing is an absolute trip. I texted my sister (aka EDITOR-FANTASTIC) to explain the new character (I am ruining everything she is trying to edit) and told her that when stuff like this happens (Characters appearing and talking to me in my mind), I feel literally insane.
Or perhaps, a more apt term- literarily insane.
Yes, that's it. I am literarily insane.
And I kind of like it.
