I believe in the trade this is known as "society of mind."
Writing fiction is "talking to yourself" and "listening to yourself" and
"playing parts" for a living. Somehow you hive off imaginary entities
that often have very little to do with your own sense of self, and are
obviously repurposed interior models of the kind we use in understanding
and extrapolating other people and situations.
