As a writer, the worlds I’ve created have become so developed that I now look on. The characters have their own stories, own ideas, they have far exceeded my imagination.
Though I did, in fact, create it all, I’ve become an onlooker. I feel as if every author is aware of this. Your characters may reflect aspects of your life, people, even yourself, but they are their own.
Writing isn’t just a way for me to cope anymore. It isn’t a creative hobby that I could just let pass by without a care. It has truly changed me and for that, I am grateful for all who inspired me to write.
