The story I want to write is as much for me as it is for you. Before you get to read it, I read it first. And before you were entertained, I was entertained.
This is for those of us who despite how we feel find it impossible to stop writing. The story lives in us. We live to tell our stories.

Being a writer is being god-like. You have the power of life and death. Just by putting pen to paper, you create a character that has never existed.
As the writer, you are the origin of their life.
