The best thing about being a writer, for me, are those moments when a character "tells" you something else is going to happen, something you never would have thought of, in a completely different direction than the one you were taking. And not just the main characters. I had a character tell me he wasn't just going to be a blip on the screen. He was going to show up later in other books and be a part of a charming secondary story. It's really quite magical and I love those moments. I don't know how to explain the phenomenon, but it's real and I always take the track they "show" me.
