Even in the real world of northern Minnesota in the 1890s, I have to build the place. I get to build houses and build furniture. I can add trees and lakes where I need them. It's like being in control of a small village. Except I'm not really in control. When I get involved in the story I don't feel like I'm writing it anymore, but that I am simply a vessel through which the story gets told. When that moment comes, it's a glorious feeling.(less)
