What Character Would You Swap Lives With?
Imagine you have just finished reading your favourite book or working with your favourite characters from your own book. You are about to close the curtains and turn out the lights. When a magic door pops up smack bang in the middle of your bedroom wall with a sign that reads Character Swap in huge letters. You move closer to the door, squinting your eyes, you read the small print underneath.
“Touch the golden handle, think of the character you want to swap with, pull open the door and walk inside.” Now your hand is resting on the golden door handle, it’s your choice who you will swap lives with, think carefully. Who will you be swapping with? Why that character? Now you have thought of who it will be push down the handle and enter your new life. What is the one thing you’re enjoying about living your character’s life? What would you hate about your character’s life?
If the magic door popped up in my bedroom beckoning me to swap with a character I think it would be a hard one to decide on. I think I would swap with Missy Talk A Lot from my first written novel. I would swap with her because she has a strange personality that would scare the hell out of my family if they woke to her talking away on my bed. I would choose her also because at least I would half know what I was getting myself into. 😉
I think now I have her life, I would be enjoying converting the others I have met there into my way of thinking and enjoying the new adventure for a little while. I don’t think I would like my new living conditions through.
Share who you opened the door to swap with! 🙂
I hope you have a lovely Friday!!
