Some Fun Plans: Interviews to Come!

     I am so excited!  I have such neat things in store for you guys!  We're going to do interviews!!!

     I've talked to some of the contestants for the Rooglewood contest this year.  In case you haven't noticed, there were SO MANY AWESOME STORIES!!!!  The diversity and quality this year were phenomenal.  So I thought that we would like to hear from some of these amazing authors.  Yes?  I thought so.  :D

     I'm interviewing people now.  Our first interview will be with Gwen Moeller, and I'll be posting her answers next Wednesday so be sure to stop by!  Feel free to comment or ask questions.  Also, if you wrote a story for the Rooglewood Snow White contest, let me know because I would love to interview you, too!

     By the same token, I would be happy to come to your blog and answer some questions if you want to interview me as well.  Sometimes it is helpful to have someone else's words to cover a post for you -- so you don't have to do it all yourself.  ;)

     I can't tell you how excited I am about this.  I feel like a grown-up because I'm doing interviews, lol.  I hope you enjoy them as much as I do!


  1. So excited for these! I would love to interview you on my blog, Esther!

  2. I can't wait to hear about the other entries!! (That's the saddest part of the contest - all those other amazing works we might never get to read or even hear about....)(Why can't they just publish them all in a big, giant book??? I'd totally read it!!!)

    But interviews are so much fun!!!

    1. I know!! I agree! That's one reason these interviews are going to be so much fun. :D

Character Creation by Emily Ann Putzke
My character in Ain’t We Got Fun is Georgiana (Gi) Rowland, the older sister of Bess. Their family is struggling during the Great Depression, so Gi takes off for NYC to make a fortune and help them out. The sisters recount their adventures, joys and heartaches to each other. My co-author, Emily Chapman, and I wrote this story in letter form in January. Our characters are very different people! Here are a 5 things that helped me bring Gi to life, and give her a personality that’s all her own.
1.  Give Your Characters Flaws None of us are perfect, so our characters shouldn't be either. Gi is a fun, loyal, light hearted girl with big dreams. But she has a flaw that she struggles with throughout the entire story. Pride. She’s very stubborn, independent, and doesn’t want anything from anybody.
2. Use That Flaw to Stretch and Change Your Character Pride gets Gi in quite a few scrapes. Throughout AWGF, she’s constantly battling with it. Everytime she thi…

Rooglewood Countdown: 25 days: 5 Tag Lines

If you read the back of the Five Glass Slippers collection, you will find this intriguing collection of tag lines:

"What happens when Cinderella is so painfully shy that she cannot bear the idea of attending the royal ball?  Or when the slipper fits...but on the wrong girl? What happens when Cinderella is determined to oust an imposter prince from her rightful throne? Or when she's a cendrillon miner working from a space station orbiting a cthonian planet? What happens when Cinderella, a humble housemaid, is sent with a message for a prisoner trapped in a frightening fairy circus?"      I don't know about you, but that paragraph of five tag lines were incredibly captivating.  I couldn't WAIT to read those stories.

     So here is a fun game for you.  Think about the Snow White collection of 5 winners.  Imagine yours is one of them.  What question could you pose to make people want to read your story?

     Then, think about 4 other ideas that sound cool.  Put…

Rooglewood Countdown: 9 1/2 weeks: Why Yours?

Yep, time is picking up speed.  Especially since I have other things to keep me busy.
     Here is my questions for you today: what makes your story special?  In the comments below, I want you to finish this sentence "It's a Snow White story, but..."  Did you change the setting?  Is Snow White the ugliest in all the land?  How did you swap out the elements of your story to make it unique?
