There are few things I like more than a creatively thought-provoking question. Like these two, asked of me by a couple different friends in the last week:
1. If your brain were a pie chart, how much time do you spend thinking about _____? How does it compare to ten years ago?
2. If you could write a story from the perspective of any literary character, which character would you choose?
The pie chart of my brain looks drastically different than it did a decade ago. Or five years ago. This makes me happy. I think I am content with 75% of my brain-pie-chart.
And the other one... I don't have an answer on this yet – whose story do I want to tell?? Who do I think has a voice worth broadcasting? I'm mulling it over. I take these nerdy kinds of questions very seriously.
What about you?
What would the pie-chart of your brain look like? (Thom, I expect a drawing on your blog)
What literary character would you champion/write for?
