Anyway, I have to agree with some of the others that creating a fictional story about a real person can get really dicey. I am a "wannabe" writer myself who makes mention of real people in my stories at times, but they are not actual characters in those stories. You have, however, given me the idea to have a Rory Gallagher song playing, or a Rory poster hanging on a wall in a story I'm currently working on. Mentioning some people and their music can immediately make a written work seem out-of-date, unless of course, you are writing about that particular time period. But, Rory's music is virtually timeless - it will never get old!



What a great story about David Copperfield! It seems so odd, but of course it shouldn't, that famous people just walk around like anyone. My friend at work said John Hurt (? I think) tried to chat her up at a grocery story, and a woman I used to work with actually dated Nick Nolte a few times after meeting him walking down the street in San Francisco. I should have said how nice that Osmond guy was, by the way.

Anyway I would love to read anything you write, but especially with Rory in it! I have little bits about him in the book I'm writing, and there's a character who is a lot like him too, but not him. I laughed about RobertaSparrow's comment of how weird it would be to have him performing a marriage ceremony or something, that was quite funny. I just want more people to know about him, and putting little bits in all kinds of writing might tickle people's curiosity and get them to listen to his music. I can't believe I didn't know about him, and so many people I know have never heard of him.

Subrata, would love to see your stories too!

Take care! xxx Annie



Yes lovely stories. When my two books are out, I will PM you the Amazon.co.uk and where one get it. The novel is a labour of love literally. Subrata.x
