It's time to get our calendars synced for March Magics! I've chosen dates for the two readalongs and have scheduled Twitter party dates so that we can get together and celebrate Terry and Diana and share the love with the whole Twitterverse. I'm also throwing out some prompts for Tuesdays and Thursdays just to keep the conversation going. Feel free to post about as few or as many of them as you want. On March 1st I'll put up a pinned post so that you can come back and share the links to anything you write/draw/etc. during the month.
Tuesday, March 1 - Share your books!
Show us your own DWJ/Pratchett books and/or the books that you are planning on reading this month.
Thursday, March 3 - Favorite Character
There are A LOT of characters to choose from but is there one that stands out as a favorite?
Tuesday, March 8 - Favorite Series
(or story arc if it's part of Discworld because just to say Discworld would totally be cheating)
Thursday, March 10 - Equal Rites Readalong Discussion Post
I'll post some questions and just start some general discussion.
Saturday, March 12 - All-Day Terry Pratchett Twitter Party
Use #marchmagics and #terrypratchett to post any lovely memory, quote, art, etc. that you want.
Tuesday, March 15 - Favorite Quotes
This one might be tough to narrow down but also a lot of fun!
Thursday, March 17 - Favorite Bad Covers
Fantasy book covers can sometimes be, well, interesting. Share your favorite bad DWJ or Pratchett covers!
Tuesday, March 22 - Favorite Fan Art
Thursday, March 24 - Dark Lord of Derkholm Readalong Discussion Post
Again, I'll post some questions and just start some general discussion.
Saturday, March 26 - All-Day Diana Wynne Jones Twitter Party
Use #marchmagics and #dianawynnejones to post any lovely memory, quote, art, etc. that you want.
Tuesday, March 29 - Favorite Ship
Which two characters need to be together -- bonus points for crossovers between authors!
Thursday, March 31 - Wrap-Up Posts
(boo! why must this month end?!)
For the rest of the month, I would love to see book reviews, fan fiction, art, and anything else you can think of. This event isn't about following any formula, it's just about having fun, reading our favorite authors, and bringing new readers into the DWJ/Pratchett fold. So, if you want to host a giveaway or an extra readalong or anything else, please do! Just tell me about it and I'll spread the word.
I look forward to spending March with all of you and with my good friends Diana and Terry, whom I miss dearly.
