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:

Sera’s Live Like Fiction Challenge
October: Go out with a stereotypical romance novel hero WHO ISN’T YOUR TYPE
Well, of course I was going to ask him out. I was looking for my October challenge, and he was right there, stripping in front of me. It was like the universe sent him over for me, special delivery, because yesterday I wasn’t only on time for all my classes, but held it together long enough to eat right and spend an hour on yoga.
“Are you sure you’re okay with the room temp?” I asked again.
It was cold, recently. At least I thought so, being used to Texas Octobers, and still clinging to that despite spending my fourth October in northern California. Even for a Texan I was sensitive to cold. This particular Friday, the weather sites said high fifties, but I was in a sweater like a shivering tourist.
My guest for that morning’s class had begun to take his shirt and pants off. Not bothered at all.
