Do You Love the Golden Girls?

If you’ve ever watched the Golden girls, you won’t forget each one’s attributes.

I have laughed with, cried with and cheered on the three hilarious ladies who make up the Golden Girls.

My mom loved the program. Above all, she loved the characters. More than once she’d giggle for no apparent reason. When I’d ask what was so funny, she’d tell me she had thought of something one of the girls had done or said. Often it was Blanche.

Each one of the girls portray a fantastic character in their own right. I can’t imagine any other actor playing any of the parts either…because they do it so well.

Which leads me to wonder if any of my written characters are as memorable. They are to me, of course. I’ve had readers write to tell me how much they loved a storyline, but most often it was a particular character they wanted to read more about.

Readers know how to make your day, or a week or a month. I cherish each and every reader.

I hope I can always put my heart into a character, give them an interesting life regardless of their issues, and a happily ever after.

Gone With the Wind’s characters remain memorable to me.

Do you have a special book with memorable characters?
Until next time…I wish you Music, Butterflies and most of all…Love.

    I love your characters. Your females do things and say things that mirror life. Those OMG moments that we’ve all experienced. Your heart and kindness always shines through all your stories. In the Authors Of Main Street, Christmas Wishes on Main Street, your book The Trouble with Wishes, is absolutely your best story. It’s must read.

    Thank you so much, E! I appreciate your kindness. The Trouble with Wishes was a fun story to write. The most important lesson I learned through a class I once took was, Write From the Heart. I hope I never forget those words.

    It is amazing how some characters stay with us for years after we close the book. I love when that happens.

    Some characters just do that. I remember Ursula Le Guin writing about the sheer humanness of characters who stick in people’s minds — among her examples was a certain short fellow who lived in a hole (but a very clean and well furnished one), smoked a pipe, and had hairy feet. She called him the most human character written in the 1930s.
