Wednesdays Question

It’s Wednesday so that means it’s question time. It’s time to ponder and then answer just one question. Okay, you can add all you want as a reason for your answer too. We’d all like that.

So here’s this weeks question: If you could be a character in any novel you’ve ever read, who would you be and why?

Eve Dallas is the main character of the In Death novels, a futuristic (circa 2058 AD) romance-mystery series by J.D. Robb, pseudonym for author Nora Roberts. Source: Wikipedia

I was a cop for 25 years and when I ended my career I was a lieutenant. I was a good cop, but Eve Dallas is a great cop.

    Oooh, tough one! First to mind was Miss Elinor Dashwood (Sense and Sensibility by Jane Austen). I am also an eldest daughter and I can remember feeling and immediate and deep connection to Elinor. I am a closet romantic! But please, don't tell anyone, OK?

    big hugs xoxo

      I promise I won't tell a soul Barb. Cross my heart. 🙂

    Difficult question, and my mind is a blank. Maybe Stephanie Plum from one of Janet Evanovich

    • February 25, 2015 11:47 am at 11:47 am

      Joseph Morelli and Ranger. Good choice. 🙂

    Oh gosh…that's a tough question! I don't think I'd want to be anyone but the writer creating characters…

    • February 25, 2015 11:47 am at 11:47 am

      I want you to be the writer creating characters. 🙂

  4. February 25, 2015 4:47 am at 4:47 am

    That is a tough question and I like everyone else, I can't think of anyone right now. That would take some thinking and thinking is hard to do.
    Sandee you have a super duper day along with Zane and Little Bit

    • February 25, 2015 11:47 am at 11:47 am

      I'm sure it would be filled with lots of animals whatever you pick. 🙂

  5. February 25, 2015 4:51 am at 4:51 am

    There are so many to pick from! Mostly the characters from years ago come to my mind. It would have to be someone who overcame a difficult start in life, i think, but i'm not sure which one.

    • February 25, 2015 11:48 am at 11:48 am

      It's a fun thing to think about though. 🙂

  6. February 25, 2015 5:11 am at 5:11 am

    HARRY POTTER!!!! It would be so cool to go on all of those adventures 🙂

    • February 25, 2015 11:48 am at 11:48 am

      Oh how fun. Harry Potter is a great choice. 🙂

  7. February 25, 2015 5:21 am at 5:21 am

    That is a tough question. I think any positive man that was in any of Stephen King's books. Exciting, scary but at the end some form of success.
    Have a very exciting, happy, positive Wednesday Sandee. See ya.

      That's a good choice too. 🙂

  8. February 25, 2015 5:38 am at 5:38 am

    Scarlett O'Hara 🙂 For many reasons, one of them being Rhett Butler, she was stronger than hell and green was her fave color lol

    • February 25, 2015 11:49 am at 11:49 am

      She was a wonderful character too. That movie is still a hit. Yes on Rhett Butler too. 🙂

  9. February 25, 2015 6:14 am at 6:14 am

    I think we ALL need to be superheros hun to take back our world! LOL hugzzzzzzzzzzz! 🙂 xoxoxox

    • February 25, 2015 11:50 am at 11:50 am

      Yes we do, yes we do. 🙂

  10. February 25, 2015 6:18 am at 6:18 am

    This question is too hard! But I'd agree with the Stephanie above. I want to be the authors who create the characters. Maybe a character from 'East of Eden' or a character from one of John Steinbeck's other books because they are always complex people.

    • February 25, 2015 11:50 am at 11:50 am

      Good for you. Some love to write and some love to live in someones world. For a bit anyway. 🙂

  11. February 25, 2015 6:22 am at 6:22 am

    Excellent and tough question:
    So many characters to choose from. Maybe Hermione from Harry Potter books.
    I have enough stuff in my "mothership" (ie: purse) to qualify. At least that's what my kids say!

    • February 25, 2015 11:51 am at 11:51 am

      That's a fun one too. You have to have lots of stuff in your mothership. 🙂

  12. February 25, 2015 7:47 am at 7:47 am

    Jack Reacher. But only if I was able to do all the things he could do. I wouldn't want to get into a fight without his skills. 😛

    • February 25, 2015 11:52 am at 11:52 am

      I'd like to meet the real Jack Reacher. I've read every single one of Lee Child's Reacher books. 🙂

  13. February 25, 2015 10:12 am at 10:12 am

    I'd be Wonder Woman so I could fly around in an invisible jet. 😉 I always wondered though, if SHE was invisible while in it…cuz if not, that'd be weird. Clearly I haven't seen the show for a long time. 😉

    • February 25, 2015 11:53 am at 11:53 am

      That would be fun to do. 🙂

  14. February 25, 2015 10:16 am at 10:16 am

    I steer more towards the heroic characters, e.g., Ellen Ripley from the Alien novel by Allan Dean Foster, or Lisbeth Salander from The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo series of novels by Stieg Larsson. There are plenty more, but those were the first to pop into my head.

    • February 25, 2015 11:53 am at 11:53 am

      Oh this is a fun way to get to know my blogging buddies. I've learned so much about some of you today. 🙂

    • February 25, 2015 12:00 pm at 12:00 pm

      I love crime fiction and non-fiction, too. Eve Dallas sounds like an interesting read.

    • February 25, 2015 12:09 pm at 12:09 pm

      She's a great read and married to the richest most handsome man (Roarke) on or off planet. Love her books. 🙂

  15. February 25, 2015 10:18 am at 10:18 am

    Would it be Stephanie Plum, or Scarlett O'Hara? Hmm…tuff one. Great food for thought.

    Big hugs from warm WPB, honey…

    • February 25, 2015 11:54 am at 11:54 am

      It's the hot men in both right. It would be for me too. 🙂

  16. February 25, 2015 2:35 pm at 2:35 pm

    this is a tough one. Since I just finished a book and I found the main female character totally delightful I would choose her. In the beginning of the book she's a newly divorced housewife who plan her own suicide to take place on her 60th birthday. By the end of the book she has discovered herself and made a wonderful life that she loves.

    • February 25, 2015 3:37 pm at 3:37 pm

      Sound like a great ending. Divorce is not the end of the world. Often it's the beginning of a great new life. 🙂

  17. February 25, 2015 5:10 pm at 5:10 pm

    roche' wants to be rhett butler. he said to be sure to tell you.

    smiles, bee

    • February 25, 2015 5:37 pm at 5:37 pm

      Tell Roche that's a great choice. 🙂

  18. February 25, 2015 5:27 pm at 5:27 pm

    Quite an easy one for me: Prince Andrey Bolkonsky in Tollstey's War and Peace. A man of very strong character and true patriot of the motherland.

    • February 25, 2015 5:37 pm at 5:37 pm

      I remember him. You're right about his character too. 🙂

  19. February 25, 2015 7:12 pm at 7:12 pm

    James Bond. Because he's James Bond!

    • February 26, 2015 7:55 am at 7:55 am

      Works for me. He's a mighty handsome guy. 🙂

  20. February 27, 2015 12:26 pm at 12:26 pm

    Dear Sandee, This is a tough question. As with so many of the characters I have fallen in love with, to pick one is difficult. I have learned something from all the characters and would like to think that to take these traits and mold them into one would be nice. Perhaps I will go with Scarlett O' Hara for her strength and Marie Von Trapp for her strength. Both strong women. xoxo Catherine

    • February 27, 2015 6:06 pm at 6:06 pm

      Yes there are many great examples out there. I hadn't thought of Scarlett, but I should have. 🙂

  21. June 30, 2015 11:10 am at 11:10 am

    I am not sure who I would be.

    Did I tell you I like your background?


    • June 30, 2015 11:14 am at 11:14 am

      I thought I'd live it up for Independence Day. Thanks. 🙂

    I love the Robb’s series with Dallas too. Ok, who would I be? Madeira Cutler in Annette Blair’s Vintage Magic Mystery series. She owns a vintage clothes shop but also sometimes when she touches clothes, she can see their history. I’d love to have that talent. Oh, and I also like Lacey in Ellen Byerrum’s Crime of Fashion series. She’s a spunky reporter who wears vintage clothes. Hmmm, I’m sensing a theme here. I do love vintage clothes — especially 1940s style.
