Re: How do you keep your characters realistic? I like what you're saying about no longer controling the characters, Bradley. I experience the same. I love that part of writing when you discover the solution to your problem because there is only one way your characters can act. And sometimes I feel stupid that I didn't figure it out much earlier, because it is so obvious.

A bit of-topic, but many people say to me: 'Writing fantasy must be so easy, because you can do whatever you want.' But that's only true at the beginning of a new story. Once you've decided who your characters are and what the rules are in your world, you have to follow them.
When I think of it, maybe it's not so far of-topic as I thought. Because creating realistic characters is all about following the rules you've set from the moment you've put the first word on paper.
