Well I am afraid we do. Obviously. One of the assignments for the screen writing course was to come up with a character description of a character you would like to use in your story.
Now out of a class of 14 people :
- 14 people chose a male as their main character!
(We are about 6 girls and 8 guys in class)
- More than half of those 14 chose to have the family of this man either out of the country or no longer in contact with the person.
(because we want to avoid describing all those family relations)
- And here is the most odd one: More than half of the people decided that their character didn’t have any sex drive. No romance, no problems with broken hearts, no mess, and no love actually. And if you ask me : no life actually either. I wasn’t in that half.
I am guilty as charged for picking a man as my main character too, but hey I am a girl, and I happen to have a certain interest for a certain type of men. I might publish the story here, as soon as the battle between the three story ideas is settled. Or not, if it is really bad.
I also accidentally stumbled over him again, they even named a street after him. He seems to be haunting me. Or maybe I am just unconsciously looking for him.
The best title for a book I have spotted recently:
Love and other near death experiences.
And if you like halloween: find them. All 50.
