Do you like the offer to participate/help in writing of a book?

Usually, writers, poets, actors, directors of movies are considered the craziest persons one could come across. Their enormous strangeness could amaze (or disgust 😉 many people. Probably because one of the craziest things they’ve ever heard is the offer to “take a part” in a story, so that any writer, actor, director, etc could make their works better and more real. A lot of them realize that oftentimes this is not an essential condition to write well, but it helps a lot to create good works.

Yet, for most of those who never tried to write a story is usually frustrating to be so to say a part of a book/movie-script with their habits, life experience, appearance or even mishaps. It seems mostly the creators of stories could realize how important it is to connect reality with the imaginary adventures, the good, gripping plot, the better dialogue, etc, and how all of them are connected with finding a part of the characters in real men and women amongst their friends, relatives, etc. Then, many writers I guess get brand new inspiration and their works become much better. Demi Moore, for example, had to talk with a lot of strippers to prepare well for her role in Striptease, Terry Pratchett used some real people’s personalities/frame of mind to create some of his famous characters like aunt Ogg, her Tom-cat Gribo, the Luggage, etc. Yet, the attitude of many of the “chosen” ones could be really awful… My personal experience show that when some narrow-minded guys realize what I plan to do with their experience, appearance, thoughts, etc, they look at me that way as if I jumped over a fence of psychiatry from the inside out.

Of course, I have some good memories too (an ex-colleague of mine was really glad to know that she was my inspiration for an ancient princess/ruler in my next The Opposite Of Magic and really helped me with some of her thoughts and events from her past, some other friends from abroad I met through Internet were really kind to give me some info about their experience and knowledge, as well as the permission to use some of their excellent names in some future works of mine, etc…). I’m not sure which of them were more, those who thought I was crazy or the guys who were kind enough to enjoy my offer to join me in the great adventure of writing a story. But I just want to remind to the frustrated persons that next time when they watch a movie or read a book they like so much that their life or frame of mind could change for better once and for all, they have to remember that may be some guys like them helped the writer, movie-maker with their thoughts, personalities, etc, so that the book, movie could become so brilliant… Hope I’m not the only one who appreciates such method for the true writing of a good story ;)?,,,,,,
