Submissive Streak

It’s easy to forget reality when I’m writing. Sure the characters and plot lines bow down to me. I’m their God, their creator, and their demolisher, think Hindu or Tibetan deity. But then my inbox fills with a returned manuscript from the editor and I realize it’s all a lie. I’m not the dom in the relationship; I’m the sub. What the editor and publisher wants is the true power. So much for me thinking I controlled destinies. I’m a slave at the keyboard typing away madly to appease those above me with the power of publication. So are all writers really switches then? People who go both ways? 🙂
