I’ve written a guest post over at Susan Sipal’s blog, Harry Potter for Writers, entitled ‘Every Writer Has a Bit of Harry Inside ‘Em.’ It addresses what we as writers have in common with one of the most famous literary characters of all time: Harry Potter.
This got me thinking though….. what other famous literary characters out there have similarities with today’s writers?
I’ve picked my character, chosen 5 similarities, and explained how writers have so much more in common with the boy who lived than we may realize. Now, I’d like to hear from all of you!
Here’s my challenge to you:
- Pick a character from the below list.
- In the comments, tell us who you’ve chosen and name one example of how that character is similar to today’s writer.
There won’t be a prize or anything like that. Instead, you’ll be showcasing your general awesomeness of knowing you share a characteristic with a famous character that lives forever inside the hearts and minds of readers across the world!!
Here’s the list of characters that landed in my brain the moment this question hit me (no book titles needed since I think we all know who these peeps are):
Romeo and/or Juliet
Sherlock Holmes and/or Dr. Watson
Anne of Green Gables
Sir Lancelot and/or King Arthur
Dracula and/or Lestat
Bella Swan and/or Edward Cullen and/or Jacob Black
*You can pick more than one character if you like
Are you ready? Are you sure??
Let the challenge begin!!
**Note: I’m traveling again for work today, but I promise to pop in and check out everyone’s answers as often as I can. I can’t wait to read what everyone comes up with! :0)
