More than anything else about writing, what I really enjoy is being the puppet master. Having the reader's emotions on strings so that I can tug whenever I want and be in complete control.
Come to think of it, that may explain some of my results from those "what kind of villain would you be?" quizzes.
I don't know why, exactly. But there is something intensely satisfying about having the audience captured so thoroughly that they laugh or cry or burn me in effigy. That because of something that I created, I have their emotions in my iron grasp, to dispense as I please.
Maybe it's a good thing I'm NOT a villain.
