When I was a kid, I'd read a book through at least twice in a row, then stretch out in the upholstered rocker, head on one arm and legs draped over the other, and daydream the way I thought the story really should have ended. When I got a little older, I realized that the vivid dreams--sometimes nightmares--that I had were really just my the labor pains of my own stories trying to be born. The best thing about being a writer is the ability to play midwife to them. I can't even begin to describe the feeling of fulfillment.
