Being an author is liking being God in an alternative universe. You decide what happens to your characters, who lives, who dies. Nowhere in real life do you have this sort of control and it feels awesome. Writing a book is no different than reading a really great story. You get sucked into that universe. You don't sense time. You are so entranced in the world you have created and every person in your book have an identity in your mind.
