The April4th-5th Weekend Journal of The Wall Street Journal featured the major article LOST IN FICTION by prolific novelist Alexander McCall Smith (known in part for the “No. 1 Ladies’ Detective Agency” series).
I highly recommend reading the article for Smith’s discussion of how real fictional characters can become, and thus what pressure this has on the characters’ creator.
Read the article now and then leave a comment below on what you think of Smith’s discussion.
