New Feature Starting Tomorrow

In an effort to make my blog more of a resource for my readers, I'm starting a New Feature Tomorrow. It's called "What Would Your Character Do/Say Wednesday." Every Wednesday I'm going to post a series of questions inspired by my favorite kidlit books. The questions are designed to take a character out of their normal environment and stretch them by seeing how they would react in a totally foreign world.

I've been using these questions for a while, and I'm finding it helpful. Believe me, putting a zombified cotton-tail rabbit into "Twilight" has made for some interesting responses. But it's given me a whole new perspective on Milo, and some of my other characters and I think made them much deeper. I hope the questions will help you as well.

So check back tomorrow when I kick off my WWYCD/SW with questions inspired by "The Hunger Games" THERE WILL BE NO SPOILERS for Mockinjay, since I haven't even gotten the book yet.


  1. I think this is the greatest idea and I can't wait to participate!

  2. Looking forward to it! (And I appreciate the 'no spoilers'!)
