It's Stephen King's birthday! Who is your favorite character from one of his books?
But that poor smartmouthed little smackhead from Brooklyn won my heart. More than that, I think I internalized the character. I thought in his voice for weeks and months. I could channel him in an instant. I don't know why.
There are others. I could probably name half the cast of The Stand, even some of the not-so-nice guys. I got lost in the woods with Trisha McFarland. I got little crushes on Mike Noonan and Ben Mears--writers, duh. But on some primal level, I connected with Eddie. I cried over Eddie.
