I can relate to Kermit
It isn’t easy being a writer. Like Kermit the Frog who dealt with the squealing antics of Miss Piggy, being a writer isn’t always the easiest of things to manage either.
I should know. I write about all sorts of characters that have problems that need to be solved, books that need to be edited and re-edited, and places that need to be visited before I can write properly about them—but maybe this is more of a positive.
It’s been said of me that I like to get into the hearts of my characters; that I write about them as if they have souls or something. And maybe they do.
When I began the story of Ms. Virgina Bean in, “Conquering your Goliaths—A Parable of the Five Stones,” I had no idea what she was really like—at least not at first. But through the story I realized she was a lot like me. She had some of the same fears, some of the same quirks, some of the same desires.
One of Bean’s desires was to get a great job, one that she could respect, and one that she wouldn’t be embarrassed about having. I have felt that way many times about the jobs (including writing jobs) that I have had. Another desire Bean had was to do everything perfect. Virginia wanted to be perfect, she hated making mistakes, she wanted to do everything right all of the time. Well, that was something that was just not possible.
And it’s not possible for any of us.
It isn’t easy being human, (or green) and like the character’s writers create it isn’t always easy to keep them away from the plastic or cardboard variety. But if writers remember that their characters are just like them, well, let’s just say that’s when miracles happen.
