Characters and Social Media

social_network_2

Which social media site would your characters use the most?

Do they like precise information, bite-sized stories like on Twitter? Would they be snapping picture evidence of their life for Instagram? Would they have a news feed catered to only their interests like on Tumblr? Do they have a favorite social media site or do they hop around between several? Are their own posts to the sites concise, all over the place, a good medium?

As writers, social media is important in reaching out to fellow authors, writers, and readers. Right now, we’re on one of the most popular blogging sites to share our thoughts and stories with one another. That’s the ultimate goal of social media sites — to connect.

So, how would your characters connect with others in their world through social media? How would your characters react to anonymous praise, critique, trolls? How private would they keep their settings? How often would they post? Would they connect more with people they know face-to-face or make friends with people from all over the world?

What would a stranger, or a reader, conclude about your character just from reading their social media sites?

Not Enough Bookshelves

65ac03e7bcce2ad9f65c9932a6dc817f

I’m a little jealous of all the pretty Tumblr and Instagram artistic shots of bookshelves with fairy lights and little figurines of favorite book characters and the books arranged by color and size and all be able to fit on the bookshelves…

My bookshelf needs a “Caution: Books Falling” sign or something.

Obviously there’s no such thing as too many books, but there is such a thing as not enough space. Rachel and I have already decided that we’re going to have a library in our own house whenever we’re able to afford it, so I shouldn’t have to worry about hoarding books, right?

I have been thinking of cleaning out my bookshelves again, though. Donating books to my local thrift shop or used bookstore will give them a chance of being picked up and read by someone else, and it’ll free up a little space on my shelves.

That same line of thinking makes my brain go, “Then there will be room for more NEW books!”

How is everyone on Instagram so artsy?

I recently joined Instagram, mostly because Rachel and I had made one for Double Jump, but I figured there were usually tons of pretty pictures of books flying around on there and it could be another fun way to connect to people.

I love pretty pictures of books and bookshelves. They just look so cozy, you know? Especially the ones with cups of coffee or hot chocolate sitting next to them by a window seat.

Then I look at my books and, while I find them pretty enough to be worthy of Instagram, I don’t have any fancy window seats or extra Christmas lights and garland or adorable teacups to pair with them.

I do have a crazy cat and a small dog in dire need of a haircut. Do they count?
