The way things are remembered...

 

History is a force that can be prophetic.
Reflections change and lessons are analyzed.
It unfolds and reveals our relationships towards each other and gives all a sense something greater than ourselves.
It offers ways to understanding NOW and the fundamental elements in society.
Poetic history seeks a more lasting and deeper truth.
Haggling over details isn't the main goal here.
The ultimate story of history is learning the themes of humanity:
How we conduct ourselves.
Why we do the things we do.
Transposing the ordinary into the extraordinary.
Finding the universal value and larger principals in how human beings behave towards each other.

How many people does the average person know and learn from in a lifetime?
How many 'characters' in books, tv, and movies do you think you 'know' and what did you learn from them?
How much have you learned from real people as opposed to the fake ones we all know in stories or think we know in society?
What is a 'real' character presentation of a real person in the media; The best, the worst, is it slanted, does it paint pictures of ugly derision or fantastic fantasies of folly...

Is it good to be synchronistic with the tech itself? Or just those using it? Perhaps it's better to fine tune the synchronicity with the natureal kind.

I have a splitting headache..

From which dreams are made.

Our revels now are ended. These our actors,
As I foretold you, were all spirits and
Are melted into air, into thin air:
And, like the baseless fabric of this vision,
The cloud-capp'd towers, the gorgeous palaces,
The solemn temples, the great globe itself,
Yea, all which it inherit, shall dissolve
And, like this insubstantial pageant faded,
Leave not a rack behind. We are such stuff
As dreams are made on, and our little life
Is rounded with a sleep.

William Shakespeare
From The Tempest, Act 4 Scene 1

"I know noble accents   
And lucid, inescapable rhythms;   
But I know, too,   
That the blackbird is involved   
In what I know."  

- Thirteen Ways of Looking at a Blackbird
By Wallace Stevens

Time for a few notes and questions about characters. Without them the reading process would be for naught.
 
What makes them interesting, why are they fascinating, and what makes them stick in our minds and hearts?
What embodiments do they possess which make them smart, full of feeling, what motivates them, their memories and desires, their fantasies and their foibles.
 
In short, what makes them tick. Both their good and bad attributes are important to these decisions.
 
E.M. Forster gave us some dintinctions to look for in his book 'Aspects of the Novel' to help define the process of character development.
 
These are the forms for lead and secondary characters:
 
Difference-Between-Flat-and-Round-Charac
 
Ever notice that niceness almost always prevails at the end of a book? 
Do characters have to be perfect? 
What sort of characters stand out? 
Does an aspect of a flat character bring out the roundness of of the lead character? 
Is the character interesting enough for you to be interested in what happens to him in the story? 
What would you like to see happen to a particular character? Why?
Do the internal struggles and conflicts resolve themselves? 
Does the crisis a character faces reckon itself with the past? 
How do the good attributes change to bad and visa-versa? 
Why are some characters round and others flat? 
Does the character surprise you? 
Does he convince?
 
Look for any juxtaposition to monitor your impressions over the course of a characters development. 
 
Is the image of the self what you want verses what you want to want? Example being: The Ginger vs. Marianne dilemna
 
These are just a few things to look for in your reading of characters. When you start asking these questions it'll open the door to a greater understanding of where your own character development can go through the course of your own life story. Understanding how characters develop as a reader may help tell the tale. Characters and how they interact are what drives any story or narrative. Without them there would be no life worth living...
