I have spent my entire writing career creating stories about superheroes performing good deeds and saving lives, but this time, I actually got to just that yesterday. I was about to drive out of my neighborhood when I found a stray dog wandering around. I stopped the car, caught up with the dog, and called its owner through its license. The owner found me and I was able to return the dog. After the deed was done, I finally got to feel the satisfaction of doing a good deed for a fellow human being and a helpless animal. It was during this ordeal that I understood that writing about people doing good deeds for the public is one thing, but to actually do it in real life is something else entirely. When you write such as event, you are basing what you imagine the character would feel during that situation. However, when you perform something good in the real world, you feel and understand the emotions that occur throughout the event.
