Minds of Their Own Stamp by Purplefire40 Minds of Their Own Stamp by Purplefire40
EDIT: Wow, I can't believe how popular this little thing has gotten!!! Thank you so much everyone for taking the time to favorite and/or comment! I appreciate!!! *throws glitter*

Ok, I jumped on the bandwagon and made a stamp!

Have you ever been writing or drawing, minding your own business, when all of a sudden your character(s) are in a place you don't remember going? You look back through your notes/writing/sketches/drawings and realize that your character(s) have been taking you for a ride... and you realize that what your character(s) came up with was more awesome than what you would have come up with on your own.

Those are the best writing sessions, when you don't have any expectations of your character.

I don't know what characters do to their creator's brain, but I'm pretty sure everyone with OCs is a little crazy. :D

Yeaaaahhhhh. This describes my characters so much.

I meant to use Vee getting hurt as inspiration for another character to fight harder... Instead she died.

I meant to write a deranged maniac throwing a temper tantrum... Instead I wrote some insight into his mind.

I'm using this stamp.

this totally fits me! Just the other day, I was describing a story I'd written, and my friend asked, "Do you write these stories, or do these characters write them?"
I had to reply with "Sometimes I'm not sure."

Yup. I agree :)

It still surprises me how my OCs just take on lives of their own when I let them. Thus is the nature of the creative folk, eh?

So do mine. I think the only reason people like us aren't getting much recognition for our characters is because we try to do it all on our own - no entertainment companies to back us up. I really do have an elaborate story I'm putting together; it's just difficult to emulate.

Ahaa, that they do! 

It's funny, I was trying to explain to my mom  how this made me a better writer. Letting them do what they want, and all that? After she said she didn't get a word I said, I was just blunt. "Each of my characters are like a voice in my head that I talk to. And I let them do whatever they want." She looked at me like I had just started speaking another language! XD Ehh, not everyone understands these things. I still get strange looks whenever I call my OCs' my babies. -w-

Dylan: I'm not a baby. -n-

I find it more fun to let my OC's make their own decisions. Usually, they make the story more fun than if I was the only one doing anything. :)

Me: My characters have minds of their own...they just don't have GOOD minds of their own...

Kori: OF COURSE we have minds, I wouldn't be a very good princess without one!

Flame Dash: AGAIN with the princess stuff, jeese!

Kori: Flame Dash, you're lucky we're only talking through DA, otherwise I would tell my father where you're at, and he'll behead you for your crimes!

Flame Dash: You call them crimes, I call them truths.

Kim: Guys....

Flame Dash: SO WHY DON'T YOU SHUT UP ABOUT YOUR STUPID EGYPTIAN HERITAGE AND JUST LET US HAVE OUR HAPPINESS FOR ONCE!

Kori: OH! Do you want to go?! I'll go!

Kim: Guys!

Flame Dash: I'LL GO! (Starts throwing punches)

Kim: GUYS!!

Kori: WHAT is it NOW Kim?

Kim: We're spamming Shadow's comment again...
