Has this ever happened to you?
“You live in other worlds?” Laughing mockingly. “What is wrong with you?”
This was a classmates response to me wanting to be a writer in highschool. Annoyed I retorted “No I create other worlds.”
Nowadays almost everyone is a writer of some sort, but there is a special look reserved for the poets and fantasy fiction writers. Yeah we are all weird and fly that geek flag high!
“I AM come of a race noted for vigor of fancy and ardor of passion. Men have called me mad; but the question is not yet settled, whether madness is or is not the loftiest intelligence — whether much that is glorious- whether all that is profound — does not spring from disease of thought — from moods of mind exalted at the expense of the general intellect.” Edgar Allan Poe
