Everybody leveling out after the high of the Obama inauguration? Was anyone actually in D.C. for the events? I’m not sure it would be possible to write the excitement of being there and have it come across so vividly as it would have been in person.
But if you were going to write a fictional account of the last four or five years in a Barack Obama character, could you? Do you think you could write a character like him and make it believable? What tidbits of back story would you sneak in so the election to the presidency is believable? Would you tell the story in third person or first? How would the story be different if you told it from the perspective of the wife instead of the man running for office? At what point would the book end? With the dance with his wife at one of the inaugural balls? A year into the presidency?
And what genre would your book be?
