Book writing, and the creative process involved, is like a controlled dream.
The process of writing a book is like a dream you get to control, an outcome you have 100% control of. Every process of a book (fiction)(or movie script) begins in the authors mind. Every single character, scene, event, is all created within the authors mind.
In a way writing is like astral projection...it allows the author to think it, and than project it onto paper or film and into someone elses mind, where they further add their own details and narrative to it.
Whatever you think, it becomes....
All characters form deep within the mind, and all characters are played by the author...regardless of gender, age, color, ethnicity, region...all characters invented by the author are first felt out, and then given personality traits, and then performed by the author.
When a book is turned into a movie or script, then the author or director has to hire actors to properly play or perform their characters.
The whole process is fascinating...from Batman to Little House on the Prairie to Friday the 13th to Riding Miss Daisy to Star Wars...all characters all come from the mind of one, who then projects these characters into the minds of performers, who in turn project these characters into the minds of dozens or millions.
Again...writing is like a dream you get to control, what you dream, it becomes.

The author, after conjuring up a character in it's mind, has now projected the character into 2-d or 2 dimensional plain.
The author must give their creation a name, a character, behavior, a pattern, a past and a history. Or the author can skip that phase and simply use their newly created creature as a illustrative subject.
Now I, the Author and creature of this odd humanoid, which only exists as a character in my mind...will breath into them a little life...and let them express a few words concerning above portrait I put them in...
Begin Odd humanoid:
Oh is it my turn to talk...ok...screw Princess Leia...the ungrateful b#@tch.
How could they not like or appreciate Jabba the Hut? The most powerful slug in the Universe and all Leia could do was choke it or him out...why?
Has she no tact or ploy?
You can do more with love than hostility...dumb broad.
Well I for one like Jabbas attention, and being present on his court...the Jabbas have such an interesting life, you should see all the alien habitants of the galaxy that are in and out of here...yes, I ease drop and listen to it all...I even know all the secret trade routes now...and can tell you where to get the best spices from.
Jabba is warm, and I love his big belly...you can sometimes here his stomach digesting food...expecially when he swallows live prey...you can hear them squirming around down there.
I enjoy every moment with Jabba the Hutt...one day I'm hoping he'll give me territory of my on to run on Tatoon...
That Princess Leia just don't know what she missed out on...luckily Jabba was revived after that b()tch tried to choke him out...
Some of us aren't as fortunate as Leia, to be born into royalty...so we have to take our affection from whomevers willing to give it...
Well anyways...I've got to go, Jabbas calling me through his mind...I think he, it, wants me to scratch it's back...End
Author- Well I see the character has kind of taken on a life of their own...kind of rebellious they are...scrappy...like a space gypsey or something...
Wonder what other role I can throw them in...
