When I'm reading a book, sometimes I just want to disappear inside of it...
When I read a book, it's like I'm inside of it or something. Sometimes I just wish I could go into their world, meet them, say hi, go around, you know? You just want to interact with them. Be friends with them. Because in a way, it's like you are.
If you're a writer, like I am, then you know what it's like to create your characters. I feel like I know my characters. Like they're my friends or something. Kind of weird, right? But it's true. I feel like Piper and Connie are good friends. That Sonya and I would clash heads. That Maddie and I would be besties. That Willow and I would have awesome talks and be really good friends. That D and I would be sarcastic to the ends of the earth. That Jo and I could write poems together. That Olivia and I could do plays together. That Heidi and I could roam Chronicles together and freak out about horses together. That Wyn, Arawyn, and I could sit down and talk about how we hate arrogant guys. That Adriana and I could talk about fairies and play jokes on them, giggling hysterically the whole time.
The list goes on and on.
I wish I could be in the Warrior Squad, be the Keeper of Chronicles, live in a town in Virginia called Applegate, be known as the Rubberboot Girl, be a Fairy Eyes, get to be an actress... I wish I could just disappear inside of their books for awhile, get to be with them, live their lives and stories and have amazing adventures.
Do you sometimes wish that?
