Five great quotations about fictional characters

“When 4877553writing a novel a writer should create living people; people not characters. A character is a caricature.” – Ernest Hemingway

“If you will practice being fictional for a while, you will understand that fictional characters are sometimes more real than people with bodies and heartbeats.” – Richard Bach

“I wanted to invent myself as a fictional character. And I did, and it has caused a great deal of confusion.” – Jeanette Winterson

“Basically you come up with the fictional idea and you start writing that story, but then in order to write it and to make it seem real, you sometimes put your own memories in. Even if it's a character that's very different from you.” – Jeffrey Eugenides

“I do like to embed a fictional character firmly in an occupation.” – Penelope Lively

Need an editor? Having your book, business document or academic paper proofread or edited before submitting it can prove invaluable. In an economic climate where you face heavy competition, your writing needs a second eye to give you the edge. Whether you come from a big city like Wichita, Kansas, or a small town like Bird In Hand, Pennsylvania, I can provide that second eye.
