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.

Yeah, my character Jupiter Jovian is a pompous little guy with an overinflated ego, and HE certainly does.
Also, most of my characters are wacky, over-the-top, whoop-de-do types, so this is bound to happen. :D

We'd rather have over the top characters who are interesting though, right? Who wants to have little robots that always do what they are programed? :D

I could not say enough on how true this is. o.o Half the time, I don't even know what's going on with my own characters.

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

That moment when you super-flirt character falls in love and it's unfortunate. because she dies.

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.

lol, I know my problem is I tend to overthink things with my characters. Everyone has to start at square one though and keep moving forward. Our characters are awesome!! :D
