Dean F. Wilson
“The thought had crossed my mind, that in order to save this world from Hell, I might have to become the Devil.”
Dean F. Wilson, Skyshaker

Dean F. Wilson
“When writing, there are some scenes that are emotionally overwhelming. They completely overcome the author, and only when they do this can they cause a similar reaction in the reader.

Through this, the author gets to experience multiple lives. If a character's life flashes before their eyes, it flashes before the author's eyes too, and he or she remembers it as his or her own.

With reading, we get to live other lives vicariously, and this is doubly so with writing. It is like a lucid dream, where we guide the outcome. In this, we don't merely write *about* a character -- we momentarily *become* them, and walk as they walk, think as they think, and do as they do. When we return to our own life, we might return a little shaken, likely a little stronger, hopefully a little wiser.

What is certain is that we return better, because experiencing the lives of others makes us understand their aims and dreams, their fears and foils, the challenges and difficulties, and joys and triumphs, that they face. It helps us grow and empathise, and see all the little pictures that make up the bigger one we see from the omniscience of the narrator.”

“That was the trouble with explaining with words. If you explained with gunpowder, people listened.”
Dean F. Wilson, Dustrunner

“It sucks that it takes losing something important to make some people realize they need to change, but unfortunately that's how it is.”
Paula Stokes, Stronger Than Words
