Authors Versus Characters: which do you prefer?

authorvscharacter

FACT! Writers are not the same as their characters. TRUTH: Writers DO bleed their work. But not always does their work reflect their belief.

I was reminded this via this tweet:

So what do you think? Do you prefer stories based on a writers belief? Or do you value stories that challenge the writer, making them explore beliefs they may not agree with.

I have experience with the latter, because one of my stories deals with a character smoking. And I LOATH anything to do with drugs. But this character loves smoking. And so, he smokes.

So no, the characters words are not always the writers words.

Readers have been warned!
