BOOKS

will always be better and more personal than movies

because in a BOOK, the reader

casts their own movie.

Agree or disagree?

    1. Hmm. It’s impossible to do after the fact, that’s for sure. But at the time the list of people they were considering is mind-boggling. You just can’t even imagine some of those people in that role now.

  1. Absolutely agree. The imagination of the reader far surpasses anything a director can put on film; that is of course if the book is written well.

    1. I totally believe in the power of the reader’s imagination. That’s one of the reasons why I don’t tell everyone ( just a few people) which actors/actresses inspire my characters.

      1. I usually start out with a certain type of person in mind but I’ve never actually thought of writing the role for a specific actor or actress. I know a lot of other people do. It’s an interesting concept!
