Do You Live a Writer’s Life?

I know I’m always inside one or the other of my stories or my novel. I’m watching and listening to my characters talk to each other, imagining their repartee, their tears, their devastation, their joys, their peccadilloes, their ambitions. I’m wondering ‘What if’ as I watch people, or “What’s their story?”

Writing never leaves me alone.

If you’re a writer, does this happen to you? Do you carry a world inside your head even when you’re away on a vacation?
