What I learned: I still love my characters. They’re taking some different turns from how I thought they would be. They’re smarter than I originally thought they would be, and by that I mean they’re more self-aware. In rewrites I’m going to have to make at least one of them less reasonable, because reasonable people make for boring drama. Luckily, it’s easy enough to make them less reasonable without changing who they are. All of us are capable of being the kinds of lovable jerks that you want to watch or read about.
