Blog Hop: December 17-19
This week's question: What do you consider most important in a story: the plot or the characters?
For me, it's always the characters. I love to love them. I love to hate them. I love to love to hate them. If I can't relate to them or get emotionally involved in their struggles, then the story just doesn't work for me. Characters are the individuals onto whom I project myself, imagining I'm there with them, and if I can't do that I have trouble following along on the journey.
Thanks so much to Crazy for Books for hosting the hop!
This week's question: What did you study in college, or are currently studying and did it lead to your current 9 to 5 or are you doing something totally different.
I graduated college with a degree in film and photography. I don't actually work in the film industry or as a photographer now, but the photography work did lead me to advertising and graphic design my senior year of college and that's what field I worked in for a couple years. Now, I run a wedding stationery design studio from home which still incorporates my graphic design and marketing background though it's not exactly 9-5!
