I am a professional writer. I live my life through the characters that I construct for my stories. Lately it occurs to me that I am missing out on living my own life. What are your thoughts?
What an interesting question. I would like to think that the characters that you construct for your stories come from your own inner and outer sense of reality. This seems like a rich and rewarding way to step into your own life experience. If you can construct your characters as you like, then why not create a story that you would feel good to tell as well as live. Writing is a wonderful way for you to explore, manifest and express your every desire. What a beautiful opportunity you have through your profession to begin writing the story of your dreams as you step into your dreamlike real life experience and live it.
