I found the book hilarious. I've had interesting conversations with my character's before, but none that involved Woodle Pooves! They are literally one of the best conflicts in the book. I feel sorry for the poor character and would like to see more of him!

This story is hilarious. Not only does it manage to capture how cruel authors can be towards their characters, it really manages to effectively portray authors who are just making it up as they go along. I especially love the observation that characters would know their own world better than the authors would in some cases. Conflict is great in fiction and bad in real life, so blurring the lines is entertaining. Also: woodle pooves.

I've had the same kind of conversation with some of my characters, though not quite as amusing as this fun short story. This was a wonderful story to read before bedtime.

I'd recommend this to anyone who writes fiction and to those who want to understand some of the angst writers go through.

I've had these sorts of conversations before, though my characters are not quite as hilarious as poor Varyn. I loved this short snippet. Definitely a good laugh as I start plotting for Nano 2011
