Letters With Character

I was contacted awhile back about a book called "What He's Poised To Do" by: Ben Greenman. The book has a very interesting concept all revolving around correspondence. So, in honor of the book a companion site was started where real people are writing letters to fictional characters. Doesn't matter who or why? Just Do it...so I thought I would share my letter today...and encourage you to go to Letters With Character and write you own. In order to submit one email: LettersWithCharacter@gmail.com.

Also, this site is fun to follow, there are some great letters! I wanted to write to Emma from 'A Hunger Like No Other' to tell her exactly what she can do with a deliciously hunky accented werewolf but went with Sookie instead in honor of True Blood...maybe I will write letters to characters regularly.


Dearest Sookie,

I have been able to peek into your life quite regularly and at some um... embarrassing moments. I have seen you beaten up and making love and since I feel like we could call ourselves friends I felt that you might accept some advice from an objective angle. First off, I think that you should have given poor Sam a chance, he just wants to be loved...but since that ship sailed a long time ago I thought I would offer further comment on your love life. Bill is a jerk, he may have decide he loves you now, after everything you have been though, but I would just ditch him completely. Also, why in the heck were you so hard on Quinn, he was such a nice guy and a probably a great Tiger to have around in a fight, which may have come in handy for recent events. On one final parting note...choose Eric, he may be a self-centered pig sometimes but I think he cares for you and that confuses him in his old age, so he does some stupid things. Give him a decent chance...I would like to see both of you happy.


P.S. I am sorry about Claudine, I miss her too..

  1. Wow. I can totally have my students do this! What a great, cool blog! Thanks for the lead--I'm always looking for stuff like this to share with my students.

  2. This is a great idea!

    I disagree that Bill is a jerk. He never meaningly hurt Sookie. Between Sam and him, they have been the two constants in her life. I just don't trust Erik; there is something about his love of power that will always come first in his life that bodes ill for their relationship. I agree that she was too hard on Quinn. He didn't do anything worse than Erik or Bill.

    Thanks for sharing!

  3. I love this idea! I am going to do this and post it on my blog! This is so great!

    I agree with Michelle. I don't think he intentionally hurt Sookie. He went there to do a job and started to care for her, which he didn't expect, but things just got out of control, but I am an Eric fan and I never liked Quinn or Alcide.
