Ted and Sarah both asked similar questions about relating to characters:
Are there any fictional characters whom you have emulated (or tried to)? Who and why?
Bookish Sarah asks an interesting assortment of questions:
What literary character do you feel is most like you personality-wise (explain)?
I don’t think I’ve ever purposely tried to be like a fictional character. There are aspects of characters I’ve wanted to imitate (Jamie’s open heart for Landon in A Walk to Remember, for example), but I’ve never even dressed up like a book character before. Maybe next Halloween.
I share some characteristics or experiences with almost all the YA protagonists I read about. I think that’s why I love YA so much. I was never a wild kid, but I had angst and stress and worry. I’m pretty sure I still have all of that!
