Does it really happen overnight?
An Overnight Success
by Dean Kuch
However, would those characters be as powerful if removed from their cultural impact? There's something here that smacks of that old adage: If a tree falls in the woods and there's no one around, will it make a sound? The author built them, but the fans give them life by reading them (and by supporting the author so he can keep writing).
When fans breathe life into the characters, is there some level of ownership there? How far does the ownership go?
And why does it seem to morph so quickly into hate?
Thanks for reading. I do appreciate each and everyone of you that do.
