Is it supposed to be like this?

So, I sat down to kick off my Nano book on Sunday. I had a particular story idea in mind.
But when my fingers hit the keys, something completely different came out. It was like some other character came out of left field and took over. (I'm actually enjoying the experience.)
Has this ever happened to anyone else?

It happens to me nearly every time. I've always viewed it as poor planning and runaway character development, but I like your spin much better. It sounds happy when you say it.

It's nice when it flows, isn't it?

That's the best feeling! Send some this way, please. :-)

Awesome. Love it when characters show up like that. Or change unexpectedly during the story. It's great fun.

Hope you're having fun with Nano. I's a blast so far.

That sort of thing usually happens when a new character shows up for the party in a WIP. It's like 'hey you, who are you again?'
