TCWT August 2014 Blog Chain

Thanks so much to everyone who participated in the blog chain this July! It was another fantastic one, and I really enjoyed reading all of your posts.

For August’s chain, I thought an interesting topic could be:

“What characters are you most like?” 

Once again, you have a lot of freedom with this topic. While the character(s) you choose should hopefully come from a published work, it can be from pretty much any type; book, movie, musical, short story, poem, etc characters are all fair game. And as for the post itself, you can set it up however you like. Maybe you could talk about the characters’ experiences and how they are similar to some of your own, or you could focus on how that particular character changed you–really whatever comes to mind you’re welcome to post about.

And I think that’s all! If you’re interested in participating in the blog chain, just comment below with a link to your blog and any days you can’t post on, and I’ll assign you a date. (First-time visitors: you are completely welcome to join as well!) The final schedule for August’s chain will go up on our blog chain page on August 4th, so you have until then to sign up. Thanks! 🙂

    I’m going to be annoying and pick a late date again 🙂 Not sure yet, since I’m away from home this week – apart from 1st to 11th, I don’t actually know which are the days I have things already. I might play it by ear and see what dates get taken first. 🙂

    • John Hansen
      July 30, 2014

      Sounds good! I’m putting you down for a late date (the 28th) so you’ll have time to figure out your schedule. 🙂 Let me know if you need it changed!

  2. My first time doing it, but I’m excited! http://www.adventuringthroughpages.wordpress.com
    The week of August 4th probably isn’t best… maybe late August? Thank you!

    • John Hansen
      July 30, 2014

      Woohoo! Welcome to the chain! 🙂 And I put you down for the 26th, so hopefully that’s late enough.

      • Thanks! That’s perfect! It’s just with school starting it’s a little busy. 🙂

        I’m so sorry I didn’t get it up in time, I had lots of school stuff going on. I’ll get it up ASAP. I’m so sorry!

        August 31, 2014

        Don’t worry at all! Seriously. I completely understand not having time. 🙂

    I’d be interested in joining! I am unavailable the 13th through the 16th, but other than that I’m pretty much available any day!

    My blog is at semilegacy.blogspot.com.

      I’m so happy to hear that! I’ll put you down for the 5th if that’s all right. 🙂

    Hi! I’ve been stalking the blog chain and others who do the chain for a while now, but finally found the courage to join. I actually don’t turn 13 until December, but that fits under the under 20’s rule, right? If I can do it a day after the 14th would be best. Thanks!

    • John Hansen
      July 30, 2014

      Under 13 totally counts! Welcome to the chain. 🙂 I marked you off as needing a later date in my head (because of the after the 14th thing), so I accidentally stuck you with a pretty late date. Is the 29th okay?

      • kiwiyoungwriter
        July 30, 2014

        Yay! That would actually be perfect, thanks!

    • John Hansen
      July 30, 2014

      Awesome! I put you down for the 6th.

  6. nevillegirl
    July 24, 2014

    May I have the 9th? Thank you! 🙂

    • John Hansen
      July 30, 2014

      Yup, sounds good! 🙂

  7. Alyssa
    July 24, 2014

    First time here, but this sounds awesome! I’ll be out of town from the 3rd to the 10th, but I can always schedule the post. Blog: randommorbidinsanity.blogspot.com Thanks!

    • John Hansen
      July 30, 2014

      So happy you are joining! I accidentally gave you a pretty late date (my brain is so scattered this week), but it sounds like that still works. Is the 27th okay?

  8. coruscantbookshelf

    I’ll join! Please not after the 23rd. Or on the 14th specifically (A Level results day, can’t be dealing with blogging at that point). 🙂

    • John Hansen
      July 30, 2014

      (Good luck with the results!) And I put you down for the 12th. 🙂

    • John Hansen
      July 30, 2014

      Welcome to the chain! Based on your avatar alone, I know you have good tastes in books. 😉 And I put you down for the 16th.

  11. A.R. Files
    July 25, 2014

    I could take the 15th! Gee. I’m gonna’ need some time to think about this one. I’m a very ‘average’ person XD.

    • John Hansen
      July 30, 2014

      Pffft, not true at all! You have awesome and unique parts to yourself, just like most good book characters.

      And yes, the 15th sounds good!

    • John Hansen
      July 30, 2014

      Hey! Welcome! I gave you the 13th, since it sounds like that works for you. Would you mind sending me your blog link so I can include it in the schedule?

  14. spreaderofawesomeness
    July 25, 2014

    I’m in! I’d prefer something before the 10th. However, anything after the 17th also works as well. Thanks!

    At last I can do this! This month FINALLY works for me!
    I can do either the 10th or the 15th. To be honest I can do almost any day, but those will be the easiest dates for me to remember.

      Welcome to the chain! 🙂 I think I’ll put you down for the 31st, if that’s okay. (All days are booked up so we’ll announce the next blog chain here on the same day as your post.)

      • Edwina Mapenzi

    I’m in if there’s any days left (why am I always a late turtle to these things). If not, I’ll just wait until next month’s chain. ^_^

    • John Hansen
      August 3, 2014

      Is the 30th okay? I’ll just double-up on who posts that day. We’d love to have you. 🙂

  29. If there are any dates left, I’d love to take part – I should be able to do whenever 🙂
    http://thelonglifeofalifelongfangirl.wordpress.com/

    • Reading back a few posts, I noticed you said all the days are filled up now, so I’ll just wait patiently for the next one! My mistake, I should have checked here earlier!

      • John Hansen
        August 4, 2014

        No worries! And we can actually double up on dates if you want (like you and another could post on, say, the 29th), but you’d have to let me know before the end of the day (Monday) if that works for you. 🙂

      • Oh, well if that’s okay then I’ll happily still take part 🙂 I’m not fussed about the date, although probably from the end of this week onwards is more ideal 🙂

      • John Hansen
        August 4, 2014

        I think I’ll actually put you down for the 29th if that’s okay. 🙂 And yay, sounds good!

      • The 29th is absolutely fine, thank you!

    I don’t think I can do this month. I hate to miss, but I have no time, and I can’t think, off the top of my head, of a satisfactory answer to a question. Sorry.

    • John Hansen
      August 4, 2014

      Don’t worry, I totally understand. 🙂
