Why I have not done what I said I would do

I know I promised backstories for several more characters in this supposed novel, but I realized that I wanted some of my characters to do different things than I had initially thought they would do.  Also, I didn't really like some of the characters.  They wouldn't do what I wanted them to do, or say the things I wanted them to say.  If this sounds insane, well, I can only say you're right.  I have found writing stories and now a novel to be a much stranger experience than I ever would have thought.  It turns out there are a lot of people living in my head.  The only control over them I have, it seems, is where the story goes, and who gets to be in it, and trying to get them somewhere towards the goal I have in mind.  It's like being a casting director or something, only much more disconcerting.  Anyway, uh.  More backstories coming, I hope.
