Happy 11/11/11 and Veterans Day, dear ones, and welcome to the Open Mic! Let’s chat today about characters… since I’ve been (as I mentioned yesterday) rereading LM Montgomery’s Emily series.
You’re all readers, so I know I can ask you this: Who are your fictional friends, foes, and heroes? What books do you read again and again, because the characters are your friends and the protagonist is you? Who do you aspire to be? And which are the characters you just couldn’t get into, because they were so foreign to any of your selves real or imagined?
If you have diehard literary alter-egos, tell us about them. Or if you’ve never found that fictional soulmate but have been searching all your life… tell us that, too.
See you in the comments!
