My Blog SCRIBBLE AND EDIT reflects my love of creative writing, design, literature and film. Check out my Poems & haiku, Romantic Flash Fiction; Blogfest Entries; Blog Awards and other prose and Flash Fiction. Do bear with me, as I will reciprocate with those genuine commenters on my blog.  BTW I sometimes withhold comments for challenges until later. Comments about the post are much appreciated. Thank you.
Comments based on others' comments can lead to misunderstandings that spread like whispers!

The only SURE way for me to follow you back is if you leave a comment. However, if your Blog has a black background and white writing then it makes my eyes squiffy...

Blog Feast

This is a blog hop so do visit others at: Angela McCallister's having a BLOGFEAST today September 23, 2010! Her theme, is something we've all loved and hated at some point in our lives.  Something we indulge in on a daily basis.  Something we cannot live without. 
Not only is it a blogfest of food, but it's also a feast of blogs.  Please join us in sharing a post regarding anything *food.* It can be a scene where food is central or just happens to be in the scene.  It could be a poem about food.  Heck, it could even be about a character named after food.

Here's my offering:

I hope people find this format acceptable, please let me know what you think.
COMPELLING CHARACTERS: When I submitted part of this piece to a critiquing website I received feedback that said of my character Suzanne: 'I really wouldn't want to meet her and after the first few sentences really couldn't care what happened to her'. Oh dear!
My feeling is that we should be able to identify with the characters as plausible people whether or not you actually like them, unless you like the fact that they are really bad etc. (which I do with one of mine). They should have some faults and not be uber-perfect. Describing them so that we can imagine knowing them is important because if they appear two dimensional it will be like a person who never talks about themselves or shares with others, so that you never feel comfortable with them.

I wonder what others think?
