Arthur Conan Doyle

Ambition makes more trusty slaves than need.
Ben Jonson

Sometimes I know what my characters are moving away from or toward; more often I just wait and see. For instance, though I knew Sinkler in 'The Trusty' was going for water, I did not know that he would meet a fetching young farm wife until I got him into her front yard.
