A little of me is the Mad Hatter and a little is Alice.
I’m a total Mad Hatter.
Mostly Alice, which is so funny since one of the characters I write about is referred to pejoratively by another character as Alice-in-Wonderland!! I have more of Alice in me than I’d like to admit [and it’s not just in terms of character development!]. Thanks for a fun quiz.
