Top Ten Tuesday: Characters Who Write

This week’s Top Ten Tuesday prompt is Bookish Characters. I’ve probably at some point done a Top Ten Tuesday post about characters who love books or reading, so instead, I’m going to focus on fictional characters who write.

Jo March from Little Women by Louisa May Alcott: The most obvious fictional writer is Jo March, and oh do I relate to Jo March a lot. She’s great.

Anne Shirley from Anne of Green Gables by L.M. Montgomery: Anne is another obvious writer from fiction and just like with Jo, I love her.

Eliza from Eliza and Her Monsters by Francesca Zappia: Even though Eliza likes drawing more than writing, writing is necessary for creating her web comics so I’m counting her.

Kamal Khan from Ms. Marvel comics: As far as I know, Kamal only writes fanfiction about the Avengers but because that’s hilarious and she’s hilarious, I had to include her on this list.

Cristian from I Must Betray You by Ruta Sepetys: Cristian’s writings are such a pivotal point of the plot in this book.

Bilbo Baggins from The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings by J.R.R. Tolkien: Bilbo is actually the writer of The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings in-universe.

Lemony Snicket from A Series of Unfortunate Events by Lemony Snicket: Since Snicket is the writer of the books and a character, I had to include him on this list. I adore his personality and writing style so much.

Dr. Watson from Sherlock Holmes by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle: I don’t know why I always forget that Watson is a writer when he’s the writer/narrator of the Sherlock Holme stories.

Newt Scamander from Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them by J.K. Rowling: Considering New Scamander is the one who wrote the Fantastic Beasts textbook, I’m going to count him as a writer.

Bartleby the Scrivener from “Bartleby the Scrivener” by Herman Melville: I suppose one could argue that Bartleby isn’t actually a writer since he doesn’t do any writing in the story. But since he was hired to be a scribe and I like his attitude in life, I’m counting him.

What fictional writers do you like? Don’t forget to join the link-up!
