Happy Tuesday Everyone,
Bet you never thought you'd see that on my blog, huh? "Bethany runs with lions? What in the world? Is she a safari fanatic and just didn't tell us?"
No, I'm not a safari fanatic. In fact, I've never even been on a safari. It's just a reference to my novel, Surreal, which brings me to today's questions:
Who do you run with? Who's company do you keep? What type of characters do you have running around in your head?
Whether you're a reader, a writer, or both, you have all kinds of characters running in your head. Those characters are the people/creatures you run with. They are your company and companions through a story. They are your safari tour guides and help you navigate the world of the book you're either reading or writing.
Sometimes those tour guides are all contemporary human beings. Sometimes they're extraordinary humans, like for example, knights in shining armor, wooing a damsel--the only person who can bring the knight to his knees.
On occasion it might be a werewolf sniffing around you trying to figure out if you're friend or foe.
You might find yourself in the company of vampires who are deciding if you're a snack or just there.
Every now and again a nymph might make an appearance or Greek gods and goddesses threatening all kinds of destruction (or, in Cupid's case, causing you to fall in love while reading whatever tale features him).
A fairy could alight by you and decide to tell you her story. Or an angry magician cast a spell on you.
Whatever or whomever you're reading or writing, they become your companions. They're the folks you'll look back on either with love or hate or both. Somehow, though, for a moment (or longer) they touch your life.
So who are these people/creatures you run with and in what stories?
Have A Tantalizing Tuesday!
