From time to time, one of the Forum members hosts a "house party" for our characters at a setting of their choice. My characters have gone to a psychologist's office for therapy, visited London during the Blitz, attended a fair hosted by King Charles II, gone skiing in New Zealand, visited Istanbul in the 15th century, gone to the Mall at the End of Time, and hosted a Fourth of July party in Cherry Hill.
I've blogged about this intensive writing exercise several times. Here's two links to the Cherry Hill House Party blogs.
This time, I have a new character, one who I know only a little about, at the party--Tom Chandler. It's only recently that Tom has come forward as more than Laura Grace's dead husband. His goodness has been revealed through her memories and grief. Back in December, Tom Chandler rose from my subconscious to demand equal time. Here's a blog post introducing his story in CAMP FIRE.
When we began to talk about a house party, I thought I'd take Tom as a 19 year old. He's still feeling his way to being his own man. Why wouldn't a Night in a Museum with wacky exhibits be a good idea to help me learn more about him? ; )
Here's just a bit I wrote to introduce him to the other writers.
If you want to know more about Tom, check out the Night at the Museum House Party. Bear in mind that we just started yesterday. The story is just taking shape. You're in a wild and fast-paced read. You'll be amazed at the creativity and talent of the participating writers. ; )
