Hello, mes amis. I was having a chat with a few of my friends the other day, and found myself commenting on the characters in my novels. What they are capable of, how they think, what they would do and say… you get the gist. Anyway, what got me thinking after that conversation was not the characters, for once. Not even my friends – sorry to let you down, guys. What worried me most of all was the fact that all of my characters are flawed. They are all imperfect people.
So, the logical progression – in my mind – was then the question: why do I NOT create perfect human beings? And what would make a perfect human being anyway? I could ask a million people and we probably wouldn’t agree. But I am prepared to accept a majority vote.
So, please help me decide.
