I've currently got feedback from my friend, but I haven't received any feedbacks from my family. According to what my friend says, she says it will be great if I focus not just on the characters, but the setting and the background of the each novel. In Sara, the setting is often in the woods or secluded place where there isn't people around. In Alice, the setting is Wonderland, where strange citizens of Wonderland is present, yet there is no normal people. Both Alice and Sara have something to do with dream as well. I'm trying to wrap my head around these ideas and connecting these two characters. Michelle was a great help.

I've been following Morgan and Jose the past week. I was fascinated with Morgan's narrative and thoughtful with Jose's narrative. Morgan's post fascinated me because I was able to palpably feel what she was trying to convey through her writing. The brokenness, misuse, tearing down walls, etc... They were things I've experienced and seen throughout my life too. The Poisonwood Bible is definitely in my endless "to read" list. Jose's post made me think back to my high school years, and I admit that my school life was very much nonexistence. Meaning, I was as quiet and as alone as anybody could get. I wasn't lonely or sad, but I do understand the struggle of trying to find "my" place. From these posts, I realized that I should incorporate more of my experience in my blog post.

This is weird to say, but there is so much spirit in everybody's writing! I realize how fun it is to read other people's thoughts, not just novels or essays.

  1. I don't know much about "Sara," but it seems like the character has a lot in common with Alice. Are any of her experiences similar? You mentioned that most of the setting takes place in an isolated wood. Could you draw parallels between Alice's isolation in the weirdness of Wonderland with the isolation this character feels in "Sara?" I might be way off base, but I think that would be an interesting comparison.
