Victor Hugo, the author of “The Hunchback of Notre Dame” (the inspiration behind the Disney movie, but a lot more intense), wrote the quotation above.  “A writer is a world trapped in a person.” Oddly enough as someone who doesn’t typically write fiction with a whole lot of world-building, this quotation resonates with me.  Forming characters in themselves creates a world.  Although only a small portion of a character shows itself in a particular story, there is an entire person in the writer’s mind.  There is an entire world around that complete person.  The only difference between a writer and a dreamer is one actually puts their worlds on paper.
