What happens when the main character in a story becomes self aware?
A 16-year old aspiring writer sits down to write a story. There's just one problem. Well, two problems. First, he's not a very good writer. Second, and more importantly, his main character knows it...and he's not taking it lying down. A Prisoner of His Own Mind is the absurd tale of what happens when a character fights back.
