There's a lot of people that don't realize this. Not that I'm trying to deify myself seeing as I am a writer, but I got to thinking about it and it's rather true.
Writers create entire worlds, universes even. With the type of a key or the stroke of a pen, we decide who lives and who dies. We decide what battles are fought and who the winners are. We create heroes as well as villains, friends and enemies, lovers and deceivers. When we sit down to write, we hold fate at our fingertips.
Think about it. In a sense, writers are the gods of the worlds they create.
