It is both a blessing and a terrifying thing to have ultimate power over people by putting them in a story.
I just finished off one character, and I’m almost sad at the loss. The main characters don’t know whether to be sad or relieved. While they’re pulling through pretty well, it’s obvious they loved this character and are sorry to see her go.
Do you ever feel like you’re in charge, but aren’t sure you should feel powerful, or panicked?
