Re: Yes...

Well, yes, Stockholm's is like that ;-)

Re: Yes...

Ironically, in both directions, although that's not the only way I've ever wound up entangled with my characters. I think Rai just figured he could get something out of me. Then again, he is the only person that my characters have tossed out of my head, rather than getting tossed out by me personally. With a bucket over his head, no less. They wouldn't let him back until he promised to behave.

Re: Yes...

I am never sure whether or not to envy those writers whose characters talk to them. Mine might run away from the story, but I almost never hear them in my head.

Re: Yes...

It depends on the writer, and the characters. Most of mine don't notice me; only a few do. Fewer still follow me home. Only a handful have remained with me over the years, as stories come and go -- but some of those have been with me longer than anyone else in my life except my relatives. Sometimes they think of things that I wouldn't, and some of those ideas are incredibly useful. I wouldn't trade them away. Having friends and family in other universes means that I'm never lonely.

Re: Yes...

But do you ever have a problem with people thinking you are crazy for seeing people that don't "exist" and saying they are "real" (for lack of better terms).

It's lovely to be creative, but we don't live in a world kind to adults who insist their invisible friends are really there. I wonder about that.
