I spend so much time with my characters I begin to think of them as friends. Except with my real friends I don't spend quite so much time getting them into trouble just to see how they get out of it.
Upon further reflection, it occurs to me that if I treated my friends the way I treated my characters, I would be a lonely lonely man. And quite possibly a serial killer.
