Good Morning, on Food for Thought thursday I'd like to talk about how much of you goes into your novels.
For those of us who write fiction, how much fact do you think creeps into your books? It could be in the guise of a characters actions, or the fact they start to resemble someone you know. An opportunity that was missed for one of your characters, is it really emphasising what you missed?
Picture this scene. You have had a huge argument with someone and now you are at your computer writing a scene with your character. Suddenly your calm, reasonable hero turns into the man from hell. All your anger had suddenly gone into your character and you can make him do what really you would like to do. lol
Has this ever happened to anyone and didi you have to rewrite or didi you leave it in?
Looking back at my novels see a lot of myself and people I know in them. Did I do this purpose? God, no! It’s an unconscious action, but it just goes to show how our perception of things can be altered by our emotions. Our imagination can be manipulated folks, and the culprit is ourselves.
So today, I’d like to know who has written a manuscript/published novel and suddenly realised that you know your villain, hero or heroine?
The best comment wins a prize from me.
