It's been suggested over on Robin Bayne's blog that authors posting blogs as their characters is like acting.
So then, we get into the realm of how good writers can act.
To my way of thinking (and it's skewed, trust me. ;) ), good writers should be writing well. Which then makes me wonder, if good writers should write well, and blogging as their characters is acting... where does the confusion end? Writing and acting are two very different animals, in my opinion. This goes back to what I was saying yesterday: it would be me ACTING like my character. My characters and I are not one in the same.
So, perhaps the best way to blog as your character is to be thoroughly immersed in said character, so that it's the CHARACTER that comes shining through rather than the author acting like the character. It would require, in my opinion, writing skill, more than acting skill, to pull this off successfully. After all, I don't want to blog as a character in such a way that it looks like it's an actor's interpretation of the character.
What do you all think?
