Character Encounters - March 2017

Would you like to know a fun way to sharpen your writing skills AND connect with other authors and writers? Participate in link-ups! Link-ups are writing challenges where people are given a theme, they write a blog post according to that theme, and then they put the link to that post into a collection receptacle (inlinkz seems to be popular).

Beautiful People is a popular link up, where Cait and Skye assign us ten questions a month to answer about our characters.
Skye also hosts Novel Idea. I'm not entirely sure what that is, but it sounds fun.
Rachel Heffington used to host Chatterbox, but I've not seen her post anything new in a while.
Miss Melody Muffin does Quote Quest, where she posts a quote, and we write a story about the quote.
Katie used to host Snippets of Story ... but she's no longer blogging. Unfortunately. Someone new needs to take up the Snippets Torch, because Snippets are awesome.

And, of course, we have my Character Encounters, where you encounter a character of your choice in a location of my choice. I've kinda fallen out of habit in posting them, but I have one here for you guys in honor of Indie e-Con. And where are we going to meet our characters?

At Indie e-Con

I know that this is an online writing convention (hence the e-), but pretend with me that it's real. That we have a huge building in the middle of Dallas and all of us authors are here, and we're all in awesome indie costumes, and it's fun.

And meet your character.

Then come back and post a link in the widget below.

In the comments - What Link-ups do you participate in? Do you know of any that you think I should do?


  1. This could be fun! I think I know which of my Characters to meet up with, too....

  2. Oooh, a character encounter! It's been ages since we've done one of these! I'll get to work soon as I can. *nods*

  3. I've got to do this. Cassia is actually a great character for this. My others are too bound to their surroundings.


Hi! Now that you've read my post, hast thou any opinions that thou wouldst like to share? I'd love to hear them!
