You reread a chapter you wrote ages ago where a character dies and your immediate response is to say the prayer for the dead.
Oh boy. I mean I know these are not actually people and are only figments of my imagination, but that’s how alive they are to me. I’m worried about their souls.
I think I might need a little reality check…
Do you ever get this invested in your characters? Are they real to you? If so, do you take it as a sign of solid writing?
