Last night, right before I signed off for the evening, I had an interesting and fleeting thought. Although, since I am still thinking about it this morning, I suppose it’s not so fleeting anymore. But here it is, what if my main character had a Twitter account? What would Hope Noelle tweet about?
Are there other authors out there who created fake Twitter accounts for their characters? Or am I just crazy in thinking about this idea? Surely, I am not alone or the first who wants to do this? Wouldn’t it be a great way to promote the book? I’d just have to be careful and not get obsessed with the tweets and let it take me away from my writing.
But let’s just say I did create a Twitter account for Hope Noelle, what would she tweet about? Who would she follow? I think for sure she would not tell Lyle about her Twitter account. She’d probably tweet a lot about him. Lyle is the man in her life and who wants to marry her but Hope Noelle is not so sure. Yes, she loves Lyle but marriage? She has reservations, not about him but about herself.
Of course, Hope Noelle would definitely tweet about her neurotic mother too. And about her experiences at the Speed Queen.
I will have to ponder on this a little longer. We shall see. If you have any pros or cons or other ideas on this topic, please feel free to leave them in the comment section. I love to reply to comments.
