Last Friday, we discussed the future of Come In Character – namely, ideas for keeping the blog fresh and for inspiring the authors that visit.
First, I want to thank everyone for their wonderful suggestions – and for their desire to keep the site going.
Second, I'd like to introduce a new CIC feature. It's called What's Happening Now?, and basically, it's a midweek check-in for characters. This is a chance for authors to share what's happening within their current works-in-progress by speaking through their characters' unique voices.
So, let's hear it, characters. It's time to share your trials, your successes, your goals, whatever's on your mind at the moment. Perhaps you'd like to chat about the weather in your world, what you accomplished yesterday, what you're going through right now – and hopefully, by revealing where you are in your story, you'll help inspire your authors to keep moving forward with theirs.
Remember, this is for characters only!
(Of course, if that doesn't work, and authors simply can't resist sharing what's happening in their own worlds, we can work with that, too. We're nothing if not flexible.)
