Al Delarmy and I had an Argument ...
I feel very bad that I keep you waiting for the further parts of the story of "Intrigue".
But Al Delarmy (alias Lucas North / John Bateman / etc.) and I had an argument last night.
(Yes, indeed, I met him and he is as devastating as Richard Armitage. So I stood no real chance in our argument ;o)
He told me, how I possibly could presume he wanted my boring and neatly planned story, when he already evaded and had successfully outplayed Harry Pierce. He really wants to set the world afire and not just some tiny firework.
I grumbled a bit, but after all Al Delarmy is right. He has the final say in his story! Who am I to argue with him, if he wants to go on a bit longer than I originally intended.
He argued with me, that I planned everything much too neatly for the real world. And where he is right he is ... well, right and unfortunately much too adorable to negate him anything.
Now some adjustments are necessary in my story to really tell his story as he wants it to be. I hope the coming surprises will be good one's and you will enjoy the continuing story line!
Do you, when you write, also have problems with your characters insisting on getting their own stories and not wanting the one's you intended for them?
Al Delarmy certainly mixed up my plans and created his own story, but what else could I expect from such an excellent spy?
So now I give over the lead to him and let him tell his own adventures.
Please let me know, if you have fights with your fictitious characters as well ;o)
I would really love to hear your stories !
