What an amazing feeling. . . people will read words that I wrote. Some will be titillated, some will be bored. Heck, some will be offended. I play with the idea that literature is freedom of speech. It's fiction and I made up every word. Over 70,000 of them, strung together into a fictional tale. And to think there is a handful of totally new people walking around in the world that I molded and crafted. Metaphorically of course. Makes me realize how important it is to give them some depth. To extend the metaphor, a weakly created character is like a two-dimensional paper doll. She can't survive in a 3D world.
Here's to Jessy Tanner, my newest 3D friend.
