What more is there to Say
But wait, there’s more. An author has to be schizophrenia. How else would he be able to converse with himself?
When I write what gives me the ability to talk, and think, like each one of my characters. By definition a schizophrenic is a person that has bizarre actions, unrealistic behavior dominated by private fantasies Are my thoughts and actions private fantasies?
To be able to create entire civilizations or whole other planets, with bizarre characters, must be a short circuit in the brain. Now everyone can write little stories. But to create a book with dozens of characters, and hundreds of locations takes a talent most cannot do.
In conclusion, I believe that all writers are a little nuts.
