This is just a little quick correction. I have seen quite a few people completely misunderstanding this quote, and as the anal knit-picker I am, of course it has been bothering me way more than it should. Some seem to be under the impression that this quote is about characters taking on a life of their own in your stories, that they end up saying things you had no idea they would. That is of course not true at all. It is simply a quote about how the words spoken by a character is not necessarily reflecting the opinions of the author. It is as simple as that. You can consider this your PSA of the day.
