Switching characters

Seeing the holidays are rapidly approaching (can you believe there are only 12 days to Christmas!!!) I am going to add in a few extra recipe posts, in order to share some of my holiday cookie recipes with you.  So, this week, recipes will be more than just Friday.

Now to return to my regularly scheduled post!

When I decided to write out one of my characters and replace her with another, I didn't realize how much I was going to have to change.  Not only does it effect the last half of Sleeping Handsome, but it also effects parts of The Lost Princess.  But the changes I am making are necessary, and I think will improve the story in the long run.

While I am sad to have this character leave the stage of this story, I am excited to rewrite her entrance into her new story.

Have you ever had to decide to cut out a character you really loved?  Did you put them in a new role in a new story, or did you relegate them to the circular file, never to be heard from again?


  1. My characters on a constant merry-go-round. I never know which one s going to do what until my pen hits the paper at any given moment. BTW, sorry for making the stupid Daphne suggestion that made you shuffle your characters around.

  2. You didn't make a stupid suggestion. You helped me develop a character that needed developing, and in the process showed me that I dropped her off the face of the earth at a crucial moment. Now, I am just fixing what was wrong!


Thanks for dropping by. I love reading comments and will respond by e-mail as soon as possible.
