ADHD Fantasy Writing Challenge - Day 9: Exploring Characters

Kay only lived for about two sentences in my early drafts. I knew she was different from the others, and so did my other characters, who feared her might - which they have never witnessed.

Choosing her as the main character in my short prequel, Distracted Magic, forced me to get to know her much more closely. Equipped with that knowledge, I am now rewriting her into the novel, enriching it with her special character.

Don't you just love it when characters take over and have their own way?
