Sodaro's Stories

Sometimes it’s hard to be around real people

Filed under: Writer's thoughts — michelle sodaro @ 7:20 pm

All I want to do right now is play with my pretty novels…invite my characters over for some popcorn and Coca-Cola and just do what we do when we all get together. Today I don’t really want to be around actual people at all; for actual people disappoint and confuse and in general are not as dependable as fictional people are. Anytime I am feeling down, Atticus Finch from To Kill a Mockinbird can bring me right back to thinking there are people who are worth it after all. There are real people who make me think this too, of course…but today, I don’t want to play with real people…I want to play with the people I have created for the stories I have dreamt up…I want to see what wild adventures they could take me on, what sights I could see, what truths I could learn…in general…I want to play in a world that is not reality today.
Just lock the world away and play with words…sigh…real world is calling and for today, I have to answer. But tomorrow…tomorrow is play time.

  1. It is fun when you play with your characters because you create more chapters. Debbie, Ducky, and I are always waiting patiently till you return from your journey with your characters. Always remember that we got your back! :):)
