it's a revolt

no matter how many times i rewrite the scene, my characters have decided i still don't "get" them, that i'm trying to force them to do something they're not ready to do. it's gotten so bad, i think they're planning a revolt, or at least a kidnapping. if you don't see me back here in a day or two, expect to see a ransom note from either Tiana or Arathor.

Characters! They think the book is about them.

yes, i suppose they do. but there'd be no story without them, so, like it or not, we have to give into their demands
