Visualize your Charaters

When I write I have to visualize my characters. To be able to get into their emotions I have to see them in my mind acting out my scene. I try and pick out the actors I want to cast in my "movie" before I start a new project. In Love and Honor I did start with one hero but as I continued to write Max, the charater I had "cast" no longer fit the charater I was writing. I feel that it is okay to recast, remember you are writing the story not the charater. For the role of Max I orginally cast Josh Hartnet. But as I wrote it became clear he no longer fit how my charater evolved. In the end Max was awarded to Ben Browder.
