Randomosity on Thursday?

Yep, you read that right, folks. I'm doing my Randomosity post a day early because TOMORROW, we at A Nudge will be participating in Elana, Alex and Jen's Great Blogging Experiment!

The topic is Writing Compelling Characters. I'm excited but also freaked because Alz and I haven't discussed what exactly we will be doing and/or writing about, and I want to watch the season premiere of Fringe tomorrow. Yes, priorities, I know. Besides, I already did most of my freaking out this weekend when I cried, "I don't even know if I do write compelling characters!!!" - to which Alz assured me I did, but she's possibly just being nice.

So SEE YOU TOMORROW HERE for Character Bloggage!

Ahem. Onwards and upwards! NYC picture-spam will be next week since I'm still uploading them.

1. Next week is Banned Books Week. I'm sure many of you have heard of the stir surrounding the modern YA classic SPEAK. Basically, some guy wants to ban it from his school district because he thinks it's pornography. Yeah, SRSLY. Read more about this here at author Laurie Halse Anderson's blog, and be sure to watch the SPEAK poem video. It's moving.

2. In that vein, I will endeavor to read a Banned Book next week since I'm finishing up with my current read. Perhaps SPEAK? Also, check out the #speakloudly hashtag on Twitter.

3. TV IS BACK! Glee on Tuesday, Criminal Minds yesterday, FRINGE tonight, Supernatural on Friday!!! AH! I need to control myself so I don't spend all my time on TV.

4. People, I am freaking out about this. The Harry Potter Deathly Hallows Part 1 theatrical trailer is out!!! IT'S SO EPIC!!!

5. I'm already thinking about Halloween. Any costume ideas? I have Gail Carriger's Blameless sitting on my desk, which makes me want to go all steampunk (but mostly I want to read it!)

What's your random this week and who else is participating in the blogging experiment tomorrow?!

P.S. Yesterday was the first day of autumn, and also the Moon Festival! I'm not really a fan of moon cakes, but the Moon Festival's cool! Hope you all had a good one!

Oh, thanks for reminding me of two things: The Blogfest, and that the sequel to Soulless is out. Man, doesn't Gail Carriger have the best author bio and photo ever? I wish I was that cool. ;)

Looking forward to tomorrow's post!

Yay for the blogging experiment! I can't wait. And the trailer!! I will watch this as soon as I get home and the YouTube isn't blocked any more.

Krispy said...

Tere- Blameless is actually the third! Changeless is #2! I love her author photo!

Elana- I can't wait for you to see the trailer! And I'm excited/scared for tomorrow! Haha.

Sandy said...

Yay! I'll definitely swing by your blog tomorrow for the Blogging Experiment (and try to do one myself :)).

I did NOT know that next week is banned books week and with all the buzz on Speak I think now might be the time! Thanks for the heads up!

I'm glad to hear that you are on board for the blogging experiment! So far it's been going great! Thanks for joining, I'll stop by later to read your entry!

Oh, thanks for the correction. I would've been pissed if I downloaded the wrong one!

Thanks, hon!
