In honor of Valentine’s Day, I’m going to host a “101 Ways to Love Your Characters” clinic here on the blog, beginning Friday, 2/13 thru Sunday, 2/15. This invitation is open to anyone on the planet who has anything at all to say about characters.
If you’re a reader, I want to know about your all-time favorite characters and why you love them.
If you’re a writer, I want to know about all your tricks and techniques that help you create memorable characters. My friend Jenna is going to blog about using tarot; my friend Soleil is going to use astrology; and I’m going to talk about a variety of things, like static traits and possibly what I’ve learned using I Ching.
The clinics will be informal, chatty, and above all, fun!
I’ll post daily Clinic entries here, linking to everyone who’s participating to share the link love. Simply e-mail me (see the About tab) or comment on any post and leave me your link to be included. I’ll be giving away two prizes: one to the posters; one to the commenters (on any participating blog entry, not just mine). Posters may comment to gain more chances to win.
Since Ann and Bethanie can attest to how much I suck at getting packages in the mail *mutters at self and eyes the box on the corner of my desk that I should have mailed last freaking year!!*, the rules are very simple. Up for grabs: two $20 prizes, winner’s choice
- Amazon order (that qualifies for Amazon Prime or includes shipping) up to $20
- any online book retailer $20 gift certificate (Amazon, B&N, Fictionwise, Drollerie Press bookshop, etc.)
So make a note on your calendar and I hope to see you next weekend!
