All Those Characters

Here’s a quote with novelists in mind:

Every human being has hundreds of separate people living under his skin. The talent of a writer is his ability to give them their separate names, identities, personalities and have them relate to other characters living with him. (Mel Brooks)

So maybe those of us who write fiction aren’t the only ones with voices and characters in our heads or under our skin. We’re just the ones who listen to them closely enough to let them be heard. 🙂
