MY CHARACTER GRAM IS GOING TO HELL...

AND OTHER THINGS MY READERS TELL ME...
This is a photo of me carrying two of my characters around on my back... I can't get rid of them. They are with me every moment of every day whispering in my ear.
I'm responsible for them and everything they do is my fault.
For example...
Gram's potty mouth has gotten her into trouble. I have been told on good authority (the born-again-community-somewhere-in-the-wilds-of-someplace) that no matter how good Gram was to Perry she's going straight-to-HELL-capital-H-do-not-pass-go-do-not-collect-your-$200-spiritual-Monopoly-kind-of-thing.
There's nothing I can do about it. I can't pull in any do-gooder markers. Can't go back (remember I already killed her off).
She's burning away now.
Gee.
I thought she was entirely imaginary.
Bummer.
My bad.

It's nice to know I'll have some company there.

Opinions are like belly buttons. Everybody has one.

Well, if Gram is going to hell, then so are millions of other literary characters. Sounds like quite a party!

It's funny to be told that a FICTIONAL character is going to Hell because she swears too much. IMHO, those people are not good readers. They are too limited in their own little worlds...

ORION said...

But Ray I feel a bit sorry for Gram...I was the one who made her swear...

Ray Wong said...

AGH! Nah, no, Gram wanted to swear. You didn't make her swear. You just reported on her swearing instead of censoring her.

Ha! I had someone email a friend, "I couldn't read Kim's HuffPo, she swore in it." OK, so she read part of it! And I think I said, "flurk" meaning the F bomb - as I'd never drop the bomb on HuffPo. Maybe ass - I think I also used ass. Some folks get so tangled up in minutia the world and many good things utterly elude them. Shame, isn't it?

Gram made me laugh out loud and she talked just like my real life grandma who is probably chortling in hell with her right now.

Awww, some of the best people in Heaven had the pottiest mouths on Earth. Thank God he's more understanding than some humans.

Love that sculpture!
