Imagination Station

I don’t know about you, but this is how I write!  Don’t forget to click the pic to see the whole thing.

If you got the help of one literary character to write your novels, who would it be and why?

A giant hug to my little sis for sharing this magical picture with me and a warm thanks to coolvibe.  Their artwork is amazing.

  1. Cool illustration. I think that I would choose Encyclopedia Brown, because he’s in my target audience (gifted boys) and could be a beta reader. I could also ask him questions instead of doing research when I’m writing.

    Nice to have you back! Missed your posts. 🙂

    • Oh, I so loved Encyclopedia Brown as a kid. He was so adventurous and smart. I remember at one point I thought I should marry him. If he’s as cute as I thought he must have been back then, he would definitely be a great writing partner.

      It’s nice to be back. I go through withdrawels when I don’t get to interact with my bestest buddies.

  2. This picture is wonderful. I love libraries, and now I understand why I spend so much time in the old stacks. That’s where the characters live.

    If I had the help of one literary character to help me write, who would I choose? I think the White Rabbit — if I had someone like him with his “I’m late, I’m late” and his watch, perhaps I’d feel the pressure and get more done.

    • LOL, Patricia. I’m not as cute as the White Rabbit, but I could nudge you with my own proclamations of lateness whenever you want!

      Yes, libraries are truly magical places. I love this picture.

  3. Fabulous picture!!

    I think I’d get Anne of Green Gables to help me out – that imagination of hers would be so much fun! 🙂

    I always liked Encyclopdia Brown too – one of my faves.

  4. Wow, that picture is amazing! I wish I could do art like that!

    Definitely Anne Shirley! Her imagination is unlike anyone I know–real or literary!

    Hermione Granger would be very helpful for research. I wish I had her brains!

    Love Encyclopedia Brown, too! I recently re-read a bunch of those. I remembered the answers to some of the stories, but not all of them, so that was fun to figure out!

    • Funny, I remember some of the mysteries and clues myself. Every time I see a flag, I think of an Encyclopedia Brown book.

      Hermione would be a great writing partner. She’s smart, driven and I love her humor.

  5. I think I’d pick Dr. Watson. In the stories, he continues writing Holmes’ adventures even though Holmes himself is pretty unappreciative. Watson could help anyone persevere.

  6. Oh gosh what an amazing picture! Thank you for sharing this Cat.
    Hmm, if I could get the help of one literary character to tell my stories it would definitely be The Little Prince! 🙂

  7. What a gorgeous picture! I have no idea who I would pick to help. I’ll think about it and come back if I arrive at an answer. Glad to see you’ve returned. 🙂

    • Thanks. I’m glad to have returned. Although I wouldn’t mind a perpetual hiatus in a library like the one pictured. That would be something…

  8. Hmmm…a literary character as a writing partner. At the moment, Willy Wonka is coming to mind. But the book version and not the movie version. 🙂

    That is a great question!

    • Ah, definitely the book version. Both the movie versions are just too scary. I’d be so leary of their antics that I wouldn’t be able to concentrate! Good choice.

  9. That picture is so amazing. Love it 🙂 Hm, a fictional character as a writing partner. Have you ever read The Borrower series by Mary Norton? Those were some of my favorites books as a kid and actually inspired me to start writing in the first place (among other books) 😉 So I’d enlist the help of Arrietty and Spiller. Ah, trip down memory lane…

    Sorry for not commenting lately, BTW. Life’s been interrupting lately (it has a bad habit of doing that), so I haven’t been around much 🙂

    • Oh my gosh, I totally forgot about the Borrowers. I love, love, loved them as a kid. I imagined them as my friends and my sister and I would leave special treats out for them. Whenever something disappeared in our house, the Borrowers did it. Needed it, and so we just let it go without too much searching.

      Don’t fret the RL intervention. It happens and everybody understands it.
