It's time for Book Blogger Hop and Follow Friday.
This week’s Hop question is: What do you consider the most important in a story: the plot or the characters?
To me, plot is essential. I can like a character, but if she never grows or does something with herself, what's the point? And if I dislike a character but see her change throughout the course of a book, I'm usually pretty satisfied at the end. (See: The Duff) So maybe it's a combo of both: Characters who DO something, or characters I don't like who grow to become someone I do like.
And, Follow Friday is asking: 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 studied journalism, and though I'm no longer a girl reporter (yes, I had to wear a fireman suit like Bridget Jones for one piece), you bet I'm still using what I learned in school!
Today is actually my last day in my dream job, where I have been the copy editor for a major website. I've used the skills I learned in journ school on a daily basis since I graduated, and though I'm moving on to a new job, I'll still be writing and researching daily.
Wish me luck today as I start a new chapter. Thanks for stopping by!
