It is quite challenging to come up with an inspiration for my weekly blog. I came across this idea from scouring the good old WWW [World Wide Web] not to be confused with the WWF [World Wrestling Federation], which I am sure would present its own challenges.

Anyway thanks to Brain Candy I found this : If you could bring one character to life from your favorite book, who would it be? OOOH that really gives you something to think about. I love books I’ve read virtually dozens of them.

So who do I pick..I love the Chronicles of Narnia, should it be Aslan? Then again I love To Kill a Mockingbird, so would it be Scout, Jem,  or Atticus [I have to admit Boo is still a little scary to me]. I really should pick someone from the Bible {What would Jesus do?} it really should be Jesus. Hopefully though,  I’ll see Him later. Anyway does he count as a character? My, this post has now gone into the philosophical.

Okay, getting back to my main theme I know I wouldn’t choose Scarlett O’Hara. Because I would have to slap her! Imagine choosing Ashley over Rhett [Or in my mind Leslie Howard over Clark Gable. That would never happen!!]. She was a strong woman and all, but please! Well really,  it might be Merlin [from countless books], then that leads me to think of Gandalf. Now my head is spinning! I know for sure it wouldn’t be Hannibal Lecter [though I find him fascinating]. Maybe Clarice Starling, now there is one smart, gutsy woman.

I do believe that this question is just too hard! I do know that many of my favorite heroines would be in the mix..Jo March, Meg Murry {Little Women and A Wrinkle in Time respectively}. Of course there’s always Dorothy [and Toto too]. Well hopefully this has given you some food for thought. As for me, I just can’t decide, I’m sure there’s someone scathingly brilliant that I’m forgetting about. I really have to say that I do believe I would have to go with another one of my “heroines’ Francie Nolan from A Tree Grows in Brooklyn.  Because she is smart, and she has an amazing amount of heart. I love that girl!

So, who would you choose? Let me know.
