Interesting question today:
Are there any particular worlds in books where you'd like to live?
Or where you certainly would NOT want to live?
What about authors? If you were a character, who would you trust to write your life?
I'll have to give this some thought. I suppose, in general, there is nowhere I would rather live than this world/time, simply because I think it was chosen for me. I take Gandalf's words to Frodo seriously, when Frodo complains about the time he has to live in.
And while it might be "romantical" to live in Heyer's Regency England--that would only be if I could be one of the higher ups in Society--not, as would be more likely, if I were the head maid or something.
It's just like those people who do that whackadoodle "past life regression" stuff. Ever notice how no one is ever a chambermaid and everyone is always an "Egyptian princess, lusted after by all"?
And to answer the other question, I'd want Flannery O'Connor to write my life. Then maybe I'd have some clarity on it.
