Greg’s Sunday Quickie – Authors and parenthood

Our question for this week’s Sunday Quickie: Are authors like parents to their characters?

Short answer: No.

Characters are distorted manifestations of ourselves. Our experiences, our perceptions, and our memories get blenderized and expressed in language that sparks experiences, perceptions, and memories in the reader. And it’s the reader who then creates characters in his or her own head.

So, if that’s parenthood, then I was totally lied to in health class.
