But please don’t hesitate to share your thoughts. Have you ever wished that a fictional character was real? If so, which character? Feel free to hijack the comments section!
I have decided to join my fellow bloggers Sue and Melanie in displaying “a list of all the fiction-based A to Zs on all of our blogs, and thus engage in the ancient art of Online Cross-Promotion.” Do visit my fellow A to Z Fictioneers whose blogs I’ve displayed on the sidebar!
