Saturdays are usually about writing, but since this week is FANGIRL FRENZY WEEK, I thought I’d change it up a bit. And really, this could apply to writers as well.
For the purposes of this post I’ll use J K Rowling as my example, because she was my first favourite author. I mean, I probably can’t narrow my favourite authors down to five let alone one, but she’s the most obvious choice.
But what would I say to her if I met her? The first reaction wouldn’t be spoken, let me tell you. It’d be something like this:
Then a bit of this:
My next sentences would be incoherent. By the time I managed to say something discernible to the human ear as SPEECH, I’d probably be crying.
And then I’d be like: Jo, can I call you Jo? SHE SAID I CAN CALL HER JO. Jo, ahem, just wanted you to let you know that you’re my childhood. Nothing that important.
Our thoughts surrounding celebrities are weird, and we think of them as these unattainable people. But really, once I’d finished getting over my inner fangirl, I’d probably just talk to her like a normal person.
How amazing would that be? Just to talk to such an amazing author about writing and reading and things in general.
Really, I’d love to meet so many authors: John Green, J K Rowling, Meg Cabot, Phillip Pullman, Kasie West, Rainbow Rowell, Stephanie Perkins and SO MANY AUTHORS OKAY.
The only problem is my awkwardness. But I’m sure I could get over that eventually. After a few years. Possibly.
But seriously, where would you even start? The problem with this is that if I ever did meet any of these authors, it would probably be for three seconds while they signed a book or something. They’d never remember. Maybe I’d just make up a really awful pun and they’d remember it for the rest of their lives as The Worst Pun Ever.
Puns are great.
What was I talking about?
Okay so I haven’t actually answered the original question of this post, but that’s because I’d love you to answer. What would you say to your favourite author? What would you ask them about their book that you’ve always wanted to know, and only they can answer? Imagine you’re Hazel Grace and you get to meet Peter Van Houten. Except the author’s actually nice.
I’d love to know your answers 🙂
And today’s the last day of Fangirl Frenzy Week, so I hope you’ve had as much fun as I have! Tomorrow I’ll be doing my monthly wrap-up, so watch out for that.
