THIS OCTOBER… it’s the #TopsyTurvyTVTour over on Instagram! This writing challenge runs Oct. 1 – 31 and I’m co-hosting it with mystery authors Brook Peterson and Saffron Amatti. If you’re a writer, join us! Reader? Come see what we’re doing with our characters!
Full details on Instagram here:
The #TopsyTurvyTVTour is hosted by authors:
🕵️♀️ @brookpetersonauthor –Writes the charming Jericho Falls Cozy Mysteries Series
👻 @saffron.amatti –Writes the spooky Lucas Rathbone Mysteries Series
and 🎩 @writertracybrown –Writes the quirky Door to Door Paranormal Mystery Series – that’s me!
DETAILS: Writers, it’s time to flex your imaginations and drop your characters into some of the best TV shows to ever shine on the small screen. Every day in October we’re picking a TV show – from mysteries and sitcoms, to dramas, cartoons, and creep fests – and want YOU to add YOUR characters to the story. Let’s see how your characters interact with the worlds and characters in those programs.
How many words should you write each day in your derivative work? Long or short, that’s up to you! Be creative – do what’s fun for YOU.
Questions? Please ask!
Share this post (or my IG post) with your writer friends who are on Instagram – the more writers we have, the merrier! Remember, there’s no pressure to play every day. Join in when you can, pick the days / programs that interest you, have fun, and enjoy reading other writers’ posts by following: #TopsyTurvyTVTour ⭐️ Please use that hashtag so we can find YOUR posts!
You’re invited to follow writing challenge hosts @brookpetersonauthor @saffron.amatti and @writertracybrown but it’s NOT “required” that you follow us. We’re doing this because it’s great to get to know more members of the Instagram writing community – and their characters! 😃
Readers – Not on Instagram?
That’s okay! I’ll be sharing my Instagram posts daily here on my blogsite AND daily on Facebook at Writer Tracy Brown so you can read them there, too. Make sure you check for a new story every day in October!
What I’ll be doing: I’ll be dropping Emily Swift and crew into a story, a scene, a situation, etc. matching the “TV show of the day” prompt from this challenge. In those posts you can read about Door to Door Paranormal Mystery Characters trying to make it through shows like: The X-Files, Scooby Doo, Bewitched, Stranger Things, Friends, The Twilight Zone, The Office, Law and Order, Miami Vice, Game of Thrones, The X-Factor – and many more!
If you ARE on Instagram, make sure you’re following me at https://www.instagram.com/WriterTracyBrown/ to see the posts there! But again, as long as you check out my blog list or my Writer Tracy Brown page every day, you can read all the short stories without Instagram. 🙂
