We all have characters we love. Let's spotlight these fantastic creations! Whether you want to be friends with them or you have a full-blown crush on them, you know you love them and want everyone else to love them too!
Most of you will probably post about how much you love each character, but this is a great place for the more creative ones among you to let go and have fun! Write a love letter to Captain Wentworth. Write yourself into a scene with Anne and Diana. Draw a picture of yourself in Jamie's arms. The possibilities are endless.
Be sure to post the book's title and author, and be very careful not to give away spoilers while talking about how much you love your characters.
Mr. Linky will be posted here on The Introverted Reader every Thursday.
Thanks for stopping by my very first Character Connection post! I hope you'll decide to join in!
My very first character spotlight is not going to be a book crush. I'm as surprised as you are!
I'd like to introduce you to Jilly Coppercorn. She's a minor character in most of Charles de Lint's Newford books and stories, but she's the main character in The Onion Girl; Widdershins; and the novella, Promises to Keep.
She's everyone's best friend and everyone's biggest cheerleader. She's an amazingly talented artist, and she's always a mess! She's funny, smart, and caring. She might not be truly magical herself, but magic just follows her around. She's probably the biggest reason I call Charles de Lint my favorite author. She's one of those characters that I wish I knew in real life.
So there's my first character connection! What character have you connected with?
1. Your name or your blog's name
2. A direct link to your post so we don't have to search your blog for it
Today Only! To thank you for participating in this meme on the very first day, I will use random.org to choose one person to receive a book of your choice (under $15) from Book Depository. That makes this international! You don't need to do anything--I'll just use the Mr. Linky. If you don't have a blog, but you want to tell me about a character in the comments, just mention this and I'll count you in as well. I'll only count links and comments posted today until 11:59 PM EST. Make sure I have a way to contact you, either through your blog, your profile, or by leaving your email in a comment. Thanks so much!
