There are many blogfests going around these days. For those of you who don't know, a blogfest is when people sign up and blog about a specific topic on a set day. Then people can go down the list and read entries that day. I've only participated in one so far (I think). But my friend Alison Stevens has a great one coming up that I signed up for immediately. It is called the Super-Snooped Blogfest and it will be March 2nd.
This one really caught my eye because I think it is an excellent writing exercise for any genre. The idea is to write about a character's possessions and setting in order to give the reader insight to the character. Isn't that great? What a fun way to explore your character! And the best part is, I think it will work nicely for any character of any age. So picture book people, sign up! MG/YA people, sign up! Adult writers, sign up! It will be great fun!
