Guest Post by Author Rosie Hendrickson

I think there comes a time in every writer's life when they realize their characters are more real than they seem.  For example, I have a book that I had the entire timeline for.  I knew which events had to happen when, and life was good.  Until I made the mistake of getting a very outspoken character involved.  She waltzed right in and said, "You know, I think I'm going to move things around a little."  We had a bit of an argument, which she won, and she proceeded to change things around while I sat in the background going, "But I though I was the author!"  I've been very careful with her since then.
    There are other ways for a character to become more real, however.  Recently I've been dealing with a character who has a lot of emotional baggage to deal with.  Suddenly, all by herself, with no push from me, she decided to grow up a bit.  I hadn't planned it, but as I wrote, I definitely felt her learning her lesson and saying, "Okay, yeah, I can do this."  These are the moments that make it worth being a writer.
    Or they may be the moments that tell you I'm crazy!  Your choice!

Roselyn (Rosie) Hendrickson is studying English at Brigham Young University and lives with her laptop, Percival, and hyperactive kitten, Merida.  She enjoys fencing (the kind with a sword), singing where no one can hear her, long books, and bad weather.

A Touching Thank You Letter

The hospital sent a letter to Wayman Publishing last week.  We've found it especially touching, a reminder of how Wayman started in the first place--because of generous people and authors (like those involved in Open Doors: Fractured Fairy Tales).  It really is humbling to see so many selfless people working together to raise a charity donation.

    Here's a copy of the letter we received:
