We all want to be able to play the damned game.
The second someone finds out you DM kiss your player characters goodbye (because playing a DM NPC sucks, and is nothing like having a normal PC).
I’m tempted to start a DM only group where the plot is handled like the campfire story where someone tells a bit, and the next person picks it up, then none of us would would be trapped as the DM. Every session, different DM from the previous session.
This is my problem.
