Character Connection Announcement (No, It’s Not Dead)

I have an affiliate relationship with and Malaprop's Bookstore in beautiful Asheville, NC. I will earn a small commission at no additional cost to you if you purchase merchandise through links on my site. Read more on my affiliate page.

Some of you may have noticed that Character Connection has all but disappeared recently.  It was just starting to feel like a chore, and I felt like I was saying the same things over and over.  So I took an unannounced break. I’m going to try Enbrethiliel’s suggestion and start posting monthly rather than weekly.  I do love reading your posts, but I can’t write my own every single week.  Any of you who want to join in can link up anytime throughout the month and as often as you’d like.  Just because I’m feeling low on inspiration doesn’t mean that you are, right?  I’ll put up my post with Mr. Linky on the first Thursday of every month. I’ll keep an updated link on my sidebar.  What do you think?  Do you have any other suggestions? I hope you’ll join me!

Character Connection meme hosted at The Introverted Reader

Who do ya love?

Or love to hate?

You know you’ve got a lot to say about some larger-than-life characters, and this is the place to say it. Write a straightforward post. Draw a picture. Vlog, write poetry, write fiction, cast the role, be as creative as you want!

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 the first Thursday of every month.

I have an affiliate relationship with Malaprop’s, my local independent bookstore located in beautiful downtown Asheville, NC; and Better World Books. I will receive a small commission at no cost to you if you purchase books through links on my site.

  1. I like this feature! I'm sorry I've been so awful at doing them. I'll start doing more. I swear!

    I'll be taking next week off, but I'll definitely have a new Character Connection post for later in April. =) And in the meantime, I'll link up the last one I did for Rumpelstiltskin!

    It's great to see this back again, Jen. I do know what you mean about a fun feature turning into a chore. I took a six-month break from my own meme because of it. It's back on track again, but I'm still not sure about putting up a linky.

  3. Good plan. Maybe I'll feel more apt to be a better participator if it's just once a month! In fact, I WILL be! Here's to our favorite characters! 🙂

I love to hear from you! Please contact me (menu bar, above) if you're having trouble commenting.
