Okay, President Obama doesn't know who I am. Heck, the mayor of the small town I live in wouldn't know me if he saw me walking down the street.
But in my head, I'm queen. I not only create, but I decree. (cue manic laugh) Seriously, before you fetch the men in the little white coats, I think all writers have to have a streak of ego running through their veins. It's that little bit of "what I could do if I ruled the world" that calls us to invent fictional worlds. And the better at inventing, the better the story.
I'd better go, my subjects are getting restless and demanding I finish their stories.
