Well, the terrible truth about writers is, they create characters and then they put them in harm's way. That's what drama is about. As a writer, I don't have an emotional link to the characters.

They don't live in my head. --- Gary TrudeauYes, I should spend more time pulling things out of my head instead of just cramming it with... stuff.
