Tell Me Something Tuesday was hosted by Rainy Day Ramblings, but she has (temporarily?) stopped blogging. So a group of us that had been doing posts (Linda from Book Girl of Mur-y-Castell, Karen from For What It’s Worth, Roberta from Offbeat YA, Jen from That’s What I’m Talking About and me) decided to get together, come up with some more topics and keep the meme going.Michelle made us a logo and we’re off and running. For more details, check out this post where I reintroduced the meme.
I can be sporadic, but when I do join in I will always share next week’s topic at the end of the post. So, today is about…
Best character jobs: what are some jobs characters have had that you loved or would like to do?
I am always envious of characters that have jobs in the book world – whether it be as authors, librarians, or bookstore owners. I’ve heard the argument that working with books could ruin them for you, but I don’t think that would be the case for me.
Other jobs I’ve found pretty neat – (magical) wedding planner, archaeologist, coder, and photographer. Since I read a lot of fantasy, a lot of the jobs don’t exist in our world. And even if they did, they’re way too intense for me. I read a decent amount of mystery too, but a cop/detective/PI gig is absolutely not for me.
Would I want to do the jobs I did mention? I don’t know. I’ve read a few teachers and I have yet to see one that really accurately captures what a teacher does, so I doubt these jobs are accurately captured either. But I’m interested!
