I have been mulling over the idea of a weekly themed post for some time now. I admit, it's mostly because everyone else seems to have one or do one, and while I don't think I blog regularly enough to take part in something like Teaser Tuesdays or Mailbox Mondays or all the others, I thought it would be fun to have a weekly or bi-weekly guest blogging event. I feel like it may be bi-weekly because I am not sure how many people actually read this blog, so if it were weekly, it might not last long at all ;-)
My idea is to have each guest blogger answer a set of questions about Females in Literature. As most people reading this blog know, I find a great many female characters to be completely ridiculous and unsympathetic. Therefore, when I find one that I really like, I feel thrilled and want to share my new friend with all the world. I am sure (well, at least I hope)there are others out there who feel the same. So, on a somewhat regular basis (depending on how many people want to participate), I propose to have people post on here about women in books that they either really adore or really hate- both are totally acceptable. All that need happen is that the woman is riveting, for some reason, like our WWII friend Rosie above. I can make up a form of questions to answer, or it can be a more free-form post, if people wish it. But basically, it would just entail talking about a certain character and why you love or hate her. It can be as impassioned or tongue-in-cheek as you'd like :-)
Please comment on this post if you'd like to participate, or e-mail me at the address on the upper right-hand side of this blog. You don't have to have a blog to participate, as I think I will probably copy and paste your responses from an e-mail here, anyway. All you have to do is feel strongly, one way or another, about a Female in Literature :-)
Hope some of you decide to join in! I think it would be fun and interesting to see how people react to different characters.
