but it sure feels like it.
i came across this article at Writer Interrupted about letting our characters flow through us - "To Halve and to Whole."
Christa Allan said, "Writing splits me in half. No, maybe even not half. It makes me two people. My writer-person and my world-person struggle to inhabit my body simultaneously."
what does it say about me when i have at least 8 stories going on in my head? no wonder i'm sometimes desperate to write. i have to get those people out of there before they take over.
this quote from Christa's website says it all: Writing is a socially acceptable form of schizophrenia. ~ E. L. Doctorow
and then i found this quote i'd forgotten i had: If I don't write to empty my mind, I go mad." ~ Lord Byron
