If You Could Change into Your Favourite Character

 "A man and a woman cannot survive without love that is for sure.  When they live for a system, they lose their love and life." ViJi.

My Favourite Character for me to change into?

Change into a Cartoon Character

    Here is a dichotomy in this question. Is it a favourite character I have created, or someone else.? It wouldn't be a problem if the question were to choose my favourite character. There is no scarcity of characters I like, from the books I have read, the films I have watched, and the cartoons I have enjoyed. 

    I would have listed Tom, Jerry, and Donald Duck. There are a lot of advantages to watching cartoons-- you learn morals like loving your neighbours, being kind and compassionate to others and much more. So, I could provide a bucket list of reasons for loving them. 

    But the question here is if I could change into them. How would I transform into those forms and sizes, adapt their voices and be funny, imaginative, naughty, and expressive like them? These days, all actions are computer generated--that is technology, but that is a different dimension. 

Change to my eBook character

     To be on the safe side in all respect, I decide to change into the favourite character I have created. There is a handful of characters in my published short stories and the eBook-'Under the Bakula Tree.' All the characters that I created in them are my favourites-including the antagonists.  

Change into Ebin Carlos-the Antagonist

    The antagonist in my eBook, Ebin Carlos, is a man of all flaws. But I made him who he is because he is a character derivative of the male-abuser system of relationships in the cultural settings in my story. The story setting is Kerala. Unloved, with a physically and mentally bruised mind, motivated by greed and dark ambition, trained to kill, paranoid, inflicted with a heart condition, ugly and suffers from Body Dysmorphic Disorder (BDD).  

I can change into him--no problem--with my androgynous personality. In psychology, androgyny refers to individuals with strong personality traits associated with both sexes-- combining toughness and gentleness and nurturing behaviour as called for by the situation. 

For Virginia Wolf, "Androgyny was a theory that aimed to offer men and women the chance to write without the consciousness of their sex--the result of which would ideally result in uninhibited creativity."

Better change into Viji-the Protagonist

But I better prefer to change into Viji-because she is a progressive and promising character-she chart out a plan for Sara to escape the impending tragedy, the protagonist of my eBook. Viji is the promise of my story to the world- it is through her character that I plotted my story and its various scenes and accomplished the theme. She is my favourite character, and to change into her is easy for me.  

She stands for love, and this is what she says about love:

Spend a day with my favourite author

 Spending a day With My Favourite Author The Image is taken from Blog Chatter      I can include a list of authors on my favourites, filter them down to five and then screen them to a final three. The finalists are J M Coetzee, Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie and Trevour Noah.       JM Coetzee is the two times Booker Prize winner for his novels, Life &Times of Michael K (1983) and Disgrace in 1999. The theme of Life and Times of Michael K hadn't made sense to me when I read it for the first time. It was a time when I couldn't analyse creative writing beyond the book's pages and that of a great writer like Coetzee.   The novel unfolds the concerns and the dilemma of Michael K, ugly to look at, beset by life conditions he never comprehends and can't control during the times of a fictional civil war in South Africa. Another reason to be fascinated by the two books is the story settings are places I am living or lived.       Disgrace is a suggestive story about post-apartheid

Things I would Like to Work on in the Month of August

  4Things I would like to work on in August Images from my file using Canva.com Failing to plan things is planning to fail. During my teaching years, I crammed the idea into my learner's minds and mine. Once I retired, I lapsed into not caring about planning things.   The call to write about four things I like to work on in August came as a wake-up call to renew the habit, and I jumped for it. August, in a biblical sense, is the month of beginning things. In South Africa, August celebrates 'women's Month,' to commemorate a historic march of women of all races made on 9 August 1956 against apartheid.  The month of July got stuffed up with book reviews and Insta Reel creations, things I enjoyed much. The beautiful themes and plot developments of the books reviewed afforded me new perspectives, and I have more queued in my reading list. The IG Reels were a thing of technical adventure, a challenge that made me feel stupid in the initial days, and when I called out 'Eu

Arjun Madhavan - the Protagonist of my up-Coming Thriller-Murder at Thampuran Kotta

A 'no' uttered from the deepest conviction is better than a 'yes' merely uttered to please, or worse to avoid trouble -- Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi A-For Arjun #BlogChatterA2Z The image was taken from Pexels.com Thoroughly excited to reveal the protagonist of my upcoming thriller -Murder at Thampuran Kotta, as part of this year's A2Z marathon-the first of its kind I have ever undertaken. His name is Arjun Madhavan--a familiar name among Malayalam speakers. The first post would suffice to present him before you, not a hectic introduction. Then the remaining twenty-five posts to complete the rest of my novel or up to where they take me. This is my second author endeavour- the first is an e-book titled, Under the Bakula Tree, published on Amazon.com-- a contemporary woman story and a short read--a sisterhood taking root under the patriarchy is the subtitle.   Three-fourths of the thriller I have covered.  It was a group expedition, I reckon, sailing through unfamili
