A quick note on where I’ve been: I arrived home from the writing conference very late Sunday night. Monday, I took my daughter up to Seattle to get settled in to her apartment, because college starts Wednesday. I got home after 11 PM and was just too shot to blog.
I’m in the middle of catching up on 5 billion emails that arrived in the last week. (While at the conference, I could only answer the 1 billion emails that were truly urgent.)
I should be back in the blogosaddle later tonight, so we’ll resume our discussion of creating characters then.

Thanks Heather. Great stuff. I also enjoyed all the comments. Great philosophy. Call it “hero-worship”, “professional respect” or whatever you want. I’m not clairvoyant but I recognize an up and coming dictator for life swiftly on his way to world domination. Somehow the idea doesn’t scare me.
If only the dictator of our neighboring country had the integrity of the snowflake guy and only half his brains….
