What book would you like to write yourself into? Would you embody an already existing character or create a new character for yourself? What would it be like to live you favorite book???
This is quite the topic, is it not? My favorite books are the suspenseful paranormal and dystopia types. So I’m not sure I would really want to put myself into those situations, because um, I might get hurt or killed or what not. I don’t really want to experience crazy scary monsters in real life, I just want to read about them heh. But if I wasn’t all chicken what would I write myself into? Well possibly the really unique world Rachel Vincent created in her Shifters series. First I was gonna say her Soul Screamers series, but really, how awesome would it be to be a cat shifter? I mean, I’m already pretty cat-like. So I might as well be one, right? I just would want to be part of a pride that is kind to their females, and doesn’t treat them like property to be married off.
First of all, I do not believe I would desire to actually embody another character. I mean, sure it might be super cool to have some kind of super powers or be super pretty or whatnot, but I dunno. I guess I am sorta partial to being, well, me! As for what book I would like to write myself into, this is tough. If we are going on the superficial, then Outlander or The Bronze Horseman or perhaps The Sea of Tranquility as these books all have one thing in common: awesome female leads and a super hunky hero. However, in reality, I do NOT wish to venture back in time to 1700’s Scotland. I mean, it was just dirty, and cold, and there was no Taco Bell. And for The Bronze Horseman, who would really voluntarily go back to blockaded, under siege Leningrad to possibly come face to face with either the Nazis (if you are unlucky) or the NKGB (If you are really unlucky)? (well, I mean, who except for Tatiana, would volunteer for that?) And then there is the tricky business of the hunky heroes. They are in love with these awesome leading ladies. There is no way they are going to drop them to hang with me. And if they DID drop these ladies to hang with me, then how could I still be friends with the leading ladies? Tatiana and Claire would despise me. Who wants to be despised by your favorite book characters??? Not me! So I suppose out of the three, I would choose to write myself into The Sea of Tranquility because Nastya would be a cool friend and Josh has his friend Drew there so when we all hung out, I would not be odd girl out. And I am pretty sure Taco Bell exists in the world of The Sea of Tranquility. I would simply write myself into the book as the girl who just moved to town to start college and who do I meet, but Drew Leighton? and the rest could go from there. So get the characters out of high school and into college and I am THERE! (on second thought, if Taco Bell is so important, perhaps I should join Beth, Echo, Noah, and Isaiah in the Pushing the Limits series!)
