Spartacus: That is because you are a human and not a dog and have a different set of moral codes and ideals to aspire to. Believe me. It’s a compliment. So, back to the interview. Who was your favorite character to write and why?
Carrie: The dog.
Spartacus: You don’t have to say that.
Carrie: I kind of feel I do.
Spartacus: And why was the dog your favorite?
Carrie: Well, other than the fact that it is A DOG, it also made me nostalgic for fifth-grade Carrie who won multiple author of the month contests with a serialized story about a girl who joins the Army, finds an alien/dog named ABBA that she falls in love with and they save the world while singing a lot of 1980s songs.
Spartacus: You haven’t really evolved much since then, have you?
Carrie: As a writer or as a human? No. Probably not. I still like unicorns, too.
