Boucher Con: On Character

October 22, 2009 at 8:27 am (Book World, Writing Life)

  • Aren’t all characters an idealized version of yourself, but five years younger? — Martyn Waites
  • Sookie is more like the person I’d like to be: loyal brave, doesn’t hesitate to act. — Charlaine Harris
  • I didn’t kill my husband! — Sara Wisseman
  • Evil people never recognoize themselves.  — Sara Wisseman

Just listening to the panelings was thrilling, even when I wasn’t familiar with the authors’ body of work.  Or, when I was and didn’t get what the fuss was all about.

Another set of great quotes was collected by the Word Nerd.
