Writing a chapter a day keeps the voices at bay.
-Yours Truly/Ou vrèman
Writers often joke about how their characters talk to them, threaten them, plead with them to spend time with them and write, write, write.
I especially appreciate what George R.R. Martin has to say about the strange and intimate relationship between writers and their characters.
Now, do excuse me, I have an important date with several individuals that no one else can apparently see.
