The Writers Circle: Halloween

One of our goals here at Today’s Author is to help all of the writers among us to do what we love to do: write. One of the best ways to accomplish this is by talking to each other and learning from each other.  Our Writers Circle series is designed to do just that – provide a chance for us to discuss writing, editing and publishing questions.

This week’s topic is:

Today is Halloween! Have your characters ever been going through your stories pretending to be someone or something they are not? Tell us in the comments about how this played out and how (or if) they were ultimately unmasked.

Let’s discuss this in the comments and see what our community thinks.


Just for Fun: Halloween

Pick a character from a current work-in-progress, a past story you’ve written or one you’ve thought up but never used.  In honor of the upcoming Halloween holiday, imagine someone has invited this character to a costume party. What do they dress up as and how do other people react to their costumes? Write a quick scene with them at the party. You can do this in the comments here or write a quick story and leave a link to it here in the comments.
