I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving. I got to have two; one with my family and one with my husband’s family. ‘Twas good.
Now, I am almost done with our Christmas cards (I have to do them at Thanksgiving, otherwise, they don’t. get. done.), but there’s still more to do…
In the meantime, I’ve been amusing myself reading all the uproar about Twilight series, and whether certain characters are good role models, and I am forced to ask you this:
Do we, as authors, OWE you, the reader, only morally upstanding main characters?
Think about it.
Better yet, take a long, hard look at some classic literature. I’ll give you a short list:
- Madame Bovary
- Wuthering Heights
- Jane Eyre
- Sense and Sensibility
- The Canterbury Tales
- The Book of Job
- The Adventures of Tom Sawyer
- The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn
- To Kill a Mockingbird
- Anything by Shakespeare
- [edit to include:] Tess of the d’Ubervilles
- Oliver Twist
- Moby Dick [/edit]
Discussion, COMMENCE! 😀
