Words from a Writer: Celebrating a Character's Birthday

Next Friday is the birthday of one of our (Crystal and my) characters. His name is Aiden and he's a lead character in the werewolf novel that we are currently in the middle of rewriting.

As this is a character that I'm strongly attached to, I want to do something special to celebrate his birthday. I've thought about it for the past week and I have lots of ideas on how I'm going to celebrate. The best part? You could benefit from the celebration!

Some of the things to look forward to next week:

Around Charleston: The novel that Aiden is from is set in my hometown of Charleston, which is actually quite perfect for this month. Next week, I will be wrapping up my "Around Charleston" posts.

Words from a Writer: Next week, I plan to talk about the similarities I have found between playing Barbies with my sister and writing with my sister. I will also share the story of how this particular novel came to be. It has an interesting story behind it.

Sister Time: Look for an update detailing how we chose to celebrate the birthday of Aiden.

The Reading Chair: Expect a long overdue review! I'll be reviewing a werewolf novel. You'll have to stop back by to find out which one!

Songs of Aiden: Look for a new playlist at the top of the blog to celebrate Aiden! I might even give some reasoning behind a few of the choices.

Contests & Giveaways: On February 26, I will be kicking off a big contest in honor of Aiden's birthday. There will be several prizes with many different ways to enter.

Looks like next week is going to be a busy week around the blog. So, I'm going to head out now and start getting things ready because next week is also a busy week with grad school!
