Day 27: Trying to think of which literary character I’d want to be was giving me a headache. I almost skipped today’s prompt, but while I was watching one of my favorite old music videos I thought, Yes! I want to be Mary J. Blige.
MJB writes or co-writes many of her often autobiographical songs, and Hal Leonard Corporation publishes them in songbooks. They’re stories, and she’s a character in them. She didn’t write “One,” but there’s a great story behind it as well.
If I can’t be Mary J. Blige, then I’ll be Penelope.
