A few lines from a fellow writer you need to read, novelists!
Also, this mug describes my mood today perfectly.
Writing gives you the opportunity to play God or make gods. You can play Satan too if he’s more interesting. Get any power you want, imagine a cure for any disease, create entire worlds, or ruin someone’s life at the cost of some mental power and time.
Here’s the kicker: if you write well enough, you can even be immortalized on Earth in a form people will either cradle to their hearts or whip across a room. You have the ultimate control, so write and enjoy it.
