Blogfesting has been awesome the past weeks, and despite my desperate schedule, I’ve managed to fit in four!
I had fun doing those, and wish I could do them on this blog, but most of the participating writers use Blogger, and it seemed to be the only choice if I wanted this to work well.
I want everyone to join in the fun though, so here’s a glimpse of what I’ve been doing and where I’ve been.
What I like about Guess that Character is that the initial post will not describe the character’s appearance, just put him/her in a scene, and let you hear his voice or watch his actions.
The next day is the day of the big reveal, where you post a photograph that closely approximates, in your opinion, the character you wrote on the first day. Interesting!
The Rainy Day Blogfest, hosted by Christine H on 25th August. This was my entry.
The Rainy Day Blogfest gave me a chance to indulge in my love of rain, and everyone came up with absolutely rain-drenched posts.
Word Paint Blogfest hosted by Dawn Embers on 27th August. This was my entry.
This was all about description, which I love, so I took out something from my notebooks chock-full of those, and published it!
Fairy Tale Blogfest hosted by Emily White on 30th August. This was my entry.
This is best described in the host’s own words:
Write in no more than 1000 words a story based on a fairy tale in a genre OTHER than fantasy. You can do horror, suspense, sci-fi, thriller, etc. (romance is okay, but you need to add another genre with it, otherwise you’ll just end up with a fantasy romance), and the plot has to be closely related to the original tale.
This one involved a fight-scene, and since I have not done too many of those, it was a challenge.
If you read some of the entries by other participants, you’ll know why I’m so hooked…they’re that GOOD.
If you’d like to join in the fun, here’s a list of upcoming blogfests.
