Halloween Party with my Characters!

Standard


Happy Halloween, friends!!

Each Halloween, I like to play dress up with my characters, throw them in a room together, and see what happens. Here’s a snippet of this year:

The box had arrived outside Zabby’s door a week ago, wrapped in bright orange paper with a black satin ribbon. The card instructed her, as always, to wait until Halloween to open it (though Zabby doubted many people actually followed this rule.)

She set it on her dresser and wondered throughout the week which costume the author had chosen for her this year, but none of her guesses were correct. When she opened it, she found a crisp policewoman uniform, and a note from the author’s alter-ego.

 

We’re trying something different this year. Each of you is dressing up in the profession of another character. Have fun!

My Characters Hunting for Eggs

Standard

This post features the following characters from my stories
Matt from The TimeWarp Bill
Trevor from School Spirit
Janice from Across Silence and Darkness (To be published in the Anthology Coven!)

Happy Easter, everyone! Just for funsies I decided to send my characters out on an Easter egg hunt. The eggs are all labeled with their names and contain the candies they like best. Have a great holiday everyone! I will be enjoying the sunshine and keeping myself from eating too much candy.

Matt reached the top of the hill, and then referenced the ratty slip of paper in his pocket before heading towards the birdbath surrounded by daffodils. He extracted the blue plastic egg from the flowers and popped it open to get at the candy inside.

Beep

Matt paused mid-Butterfinger at the sound. It wasn’t the right pitch to be any of his electronic devices complaining of a low battery. In fact, it was so quiet that he thought he might have imagined it entirely. Well, whatever, then. He checked his list again and walked off towards the picturesque little cottage on the egg hunting field. Read the rest of this entry

I’ve found several definitions for “Drabble,” none of which truly matched mine, but I’m going to use it anyway because that’s what I’ve always called bits of writing such as this. Here’s what the word means to me:

Drabbles are pieces of writing that I do for the sole purpose of learning more about my characters, and are not intended to be part of their actual stories. In this particular type of drabble, I put characters from different stories together, give them an activity (which may or may not make sense in their world), and observe how they interact.

I wrote this one (shocker!) while the Winter Olympics were on.

“When is the hockey game coming back?” Kaleb asked from the corner of the couch where he was sprawling in his nest of candy bar wrappers.
