Sneak peek: The “Live Like Fiction” challenge
I just finished writing the draft of my latest Spotlight New Adult book (I’ve been calling it Someone Else’s Fantasy). The main character is (or was) a blogger, and the plot has her doing a series of monthly blog challenges, asking her to “Live Like Fiction.”
With the help of some friends on Twitter, I put together a year’s worth of challenges. Some of these play a major role in the story. Others might just be fun, haha. Here’s the full year:
LIVE LIKE FICTION – Monthly challenges
January: Tell him he’s cute. And then walk away.
February: Walk around with a bouquet of roses on Valentine’s Day. Give them to a random person when you’re sick of it.
March: Dance in the rain in a public place.
April: At a bookstore, when you see someone browsing through a book you like, buy it for him.
May: Look out any window, find someone within waving distance, and introduce yourself.
June: Be someone’s fairy godmother/wise wizard/deus ex machina.
July: Go on a picnic with someone, lie flat on the grass, and hold a conversation.
August: Visit a place you’ve never been to and introduce yourself to the most interesting person you see there.
September: When in an elevator, say out loud: “So what would we do if we got stuck here together?”
October: Go out with a stereotypical romance novel hero WHO ISN’T YOUR TYPE.
November: Wear that favorite, iconic outfit at an inappropriate time and place.
December: Create your own inappropriate moment under the mistletoe.
Let me know if you end up doing any of these? 🙂 Enjoy!
