One of the challenges in fiction writing is putting yourself into someone else’s – usually quite a few someones – worldview. You have to be willing to see matters differently than you might otherwise. It may also call for espousing views that you may disagree with.

You know, I kinda agree with both of them there at different points. 😉

I do sometimes talk to myself when I write, often reading out loud to see how it sounds especially when it comes to conversations: Do people actually speak that way? Fortunately, I don’t argue with myself out loud when I write. Well, at least I don’t when anyone else is within hearing distance. 🙂
