Who hasn’t had imaginary friends in childhood? I’ve had so many that I have forgotten most of them. All I remember is that when I read a book that made an impression on me, and later in life when I saw a movie or something on TV, I imagined that some of the characters were real, and my close friends!
Hence, I’ve had a string of some memorable imaginary friends—and enemies!—in my time. But one that stands out is Spock from Star Trek!
[Stricken pause for your laughter.]
Well, I am still taken up enough with Spock to base a major character in my book on him! Sadly, though, he is no longer my imaginary friend, but it was fun while it lasted. He saw me through some difficult years while growing up. Recently, a friend accused me of being obsessed with Doctor Who. Well, I have always used my obsessions as coping mechanisms to tide over hard times. So, Spock was there for me when I needed him.
