I hate being defeated by something!
- For this week's task, let's take a close look at some of our favorite bookish characters. Specifically, think of a character that you really relate to, a character that you think you could jump right in the story and actually be, a character that you think the author might know you because it comes so close to who you are! List for us the traits of that character that you feel closely resembles yourself. If you feel like there's several characters that fit the bill, list them all! Why not!

Wikipedia says that the TV series Hetty Wainthropp Investigates which starred Patricia Routledge was based on a novel called MISSING PERSONS written in 1986 by David Cook.
(You probably remember Patricia Routledge from Keeping Up Appearances.)
Hetty Wainthropp takes on small cases, disappearances and the like, and often finds out a lot more than she cares to know. Yes, Hetty Wainthropp is who I'd like to be.
