I had a special afternoon meeting with KERMIT ROOSEVELT, the great-great grandson of TR. I met him at his office at U Penn to give him a signed copy of my book, WHEELS OF CHANGE as a thank you for his providing such a kind and thoughtful blurb for the book. He graciously allowed me to take a photo of the event. It felt great to meet him and be able to pay back his kindness. Baked him some of Emily’s homemade Sugar Cookies as well.
I love this post and wanted to share it here.
Talk about character, here is a steampunk snowman family Sylvia Liu recently made, as part of a new daily creative challenge blog that she started titled, Create One a Day. You can see her portfolio at: http://www.enjoyingplanetearth.com)

How Characters Can Become Stories
I enjoy character studies. Books that give perspective into the mysteries of human nature, and how we deal with intense mental, physical and psychological difficulties.
Give me a character I want to sit down and have a drink with, or even observe from afar and watch their interactions and reactions… and I’m sold.
When I write, I’m often focusing on a character in my mind. They’re more than a name, more than any description I can put on paper. I can sense them, know their thoughts, feel their emotions.
Which is great, right?
Well… yes. And sometimes no.
