Blog Chain: Remembered by...
It's another link in the blog chain, and my time is here. Shannon asked this week's topic, which is...
Imagine this: when you are gone, readers will remember your writing most for just one of these things: your characters, your plots, your settings, or your style. Which (only one!) would you prefer over the rest? Why?
I'm dead, yet I'm suppose to care??? Um... methinks I would rather be alive and just be glad my readers remember my name enough to pick up my book from the shelf - once I get that far with my writing. But if I were to croak.. ack... ack... I would like people to remember me enough to not burn my novels in joy.
Okay, seriously, if I'm dead I would like people to remember me by what I was like: my charm, my effervescent personality, how I interacted with people... er, I mean I would like people to remember my characters. How they possess charm to stay in the memory. How they have such personalities to make people laugh, or cry, or kill over crying with laughter. I want my characters' interactions to be so real that readers can relate to them in their own lives.
I would like readers to remember me by my characters, although a few flowers on my grave would be nice too.
You know the drill by now. Eric's post came before mine. Kat's post will come afterward. Read both.
flowers... I want flowers... red carnations... on my grave... or I'll haunt you!!!!
