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.

Most of my characters even have disabilities/ sad backstories. Like autism, for instance. I have autism and and I'm writing from experience. It's what authors do.

Oh yeah. Especially as I like to "cast" real life actors and actresses for my characters and more often than not, it REALLY helps me figure out what direction I want to take them.

Of course sometimes they just go off and I'm dragged along for the ride before I blink.

YEP! Its called "Characters write themselves" My mom and I love Inavder zim she wrote fan scripts when at school with my OC for me. And she know Tallest like back our hand. To the point when we ended up calling them Tom(red) and Jeffie(Purple) it just happened. And now that how we know them has. And few of my friends too who love our fan cannon haa

This stamp is my life as a writer. I get started on a character idea and a storyline to go with it and my OC's just take off, dragging me along behind them as they write half my story without my permission and take it in a path I never planned. 

I so need this stamp on my page.

I think our job as creators is to tell our characters the proposed ending point and then set them loose. ;)

Pff, so true! Fuyumi (the blondie that is currently my icon) once declared that I was the "cameraperson". I've given up trying to coerce them to what I wanted them to do... Given that the way it ended up going (with her meeting one of my other OCs Maeda and then becoming friends with Maeda), I'm just not complaining anymore. It's more fun this way!

Well, even though my Plain-Jane OCs have minds of their own, but I still control them though [mutual relationship] :) :) + As for my Mary-Sue OCs they have minds of their own too, but they won't listen to me no ways [we have like a love-hate relationship thing] hahahaha lol :D :D

So-much-yes. My main character, Denece, has changed so radically and I don't even know how or why...O.o I swear whenever I create a new world a parallel dimension is created and my characters actually become real and I'm just watching what happens next. I have a vivid imagination.

Yes they are. :) It can be kinda weird and creepy at time, I just hope they don't find a way to dimension hop to mine. XD I would have some explaining to do.

How many OC's? Honestly, I've lost track of how many I have. I have full stories full of them, little snippets that may never see the light of day, musings that are just waiting to take form..... :D

Oh wow... This is the story of my life right here. I have characters who basically told me he hated the way I posed him, and now he was going to show me he could be heroic too. "You make me look like an unsympathetic jerk? Well then! I'll just rewrite all this and make it so that I'm redeemed!"
