Writer Stuff - These Three Things ...
Bridget Jones - she's not in a relationship and doesn't have a real career and yet everyone else (except her core group of friends) has those things. She feels like she's fallen behind.
Will Lightman is a jobless thirty-six year old living off his father's success as a one-time songwriter. Without a job or a family, he's completely on the outside of society, until he meets 12-year old Marcus who is also having a hard time fitting in.
Why do I like characters who don't fit in? I suppose that's a question for my therapist (probably should get one of those). But when I look at my own writing, I definitely see that same theme play out.
What are your three books and what do they have in common??
