Ah HAH HAHAHAHAHAH! (evil, evil laugh)
I DID IT! The Twinkie is no more! He has bowed to my will and become the villain I knew he was! It took weeks of therapy, wine, scotch and a rubber hose but, he finally decided that he was evil incarnate!
Thank goodness that is over. I swear the next time I have a character to get of line, I think I am going to make them sit, tied up in a chair and play “We are the World” for hours until they submit. 🙂
Yes, we writers are a trifle insane. We are not normal. Writers have an imagination to the nth degree. What I mean is this: take a regular person’s imagination and hype it up on undiluted caffeine/dark chocolate/sugar/the power to create or destroy and you have a writer’s imagination.
Worlds live and die at our fingertips. People live, love, die and possibly go to Heaven/Hell in our minds. It’s like having the super, duper, secret red button that the President has for nuclear war, and we just sit there all day long pushing that button!
Funny thing though about writers, we all think we suck. Oh, yeah, the imagination is a nice sharp sword that cuts both ways. Here we are creators/destroyers of worlds and all of us think our work sucks. Even a top writer like Dean Koontz has problems with believing that his works is good.
So, don’t envy us writers, (even though we get to stay home and work in our pjs) because we are all mental cases. And I say that in the nicest possible way!
