characters are complicated
This is the nano peptalk I was writing for no pro this week. I have a headache so I have to revise it later to be more chatty, I just had to get it written.
Characters are Complicated
A lot of non-writers think we're nuts when we say a character did something we weren't expecting, but it's because we have given them a life of their own and they act and react accordingly. Of course, this means they can decide they want to take up pea stacking and we are powerless to stop them. If you haven't had a character go rogue on you yet, you will.
Before you panic, remember that to have an unruly character, you first must have a well-developed character with a distinct personality and voice. That means you have achieved a form of greatness many aspire to. If you're not there yet, the more you write as that character, the more intuitive they'll become, it just takes time. Either you're putting in the effort needed to make them come alive, or they already have come alive, and both mean you rock.

Feline Diplomacy
“Ambassador Maina and Ambassador Dumiga are here already, and they are waiting in the conference room. Ambassador Mraowriyowrrss III texted that he is running behind and should be here right on time. He apologizes for not being early. He is aware that humans value punctuality.”
President Contreras Garza sighed. Never trust a cat to be on time. “Very well, I will come in and meet the Quanafi and Yawu ambassadors. The cat can come when he feels like it.”
“I suggest not calling the Myuri ambassador 'the cat' when he arrives, Mr. President.”
“Yes, yes. I know, Sofia. Calling him 'kitty' is probably fighting words, yes?”
“Of course, Mr. President. Please hurry, we are running out of tea.” The secretary hung up the phone.
President Contreras Garza hung up the phone and went into the hall where the Voice of Interspecies Affairs was waiting for him, rather impatiently.
“Good afternoon,  Madam Voice” he said. “I
