Okay, so I know I promised Pinterest this time, but a) an interesting topic came to mind, and I thought I would blog about it in honor of the The Hunger Games movie release on March 23!!! You can get tickets now! Ican'tbelieveit'ssoclose!!! Okay, I'm done fangirling over THG. At least for now. And b) Besides, about Pinterest? I haven't really been researching it like I said I would. Whoops... Next time. Promise!
But back to Katniss Everdeen (who is awesome, by the way. If you haven't read the books, you really should). So I got this notification from twitter about Katniss Everdeen following me. This one's a fan, but I've seen authors do this, too. Tweet as one of their characters. How do you feel about this? Are you followed by any characters? Do you tweet as your characters?
I guess it's kind of fun to get tweets in the voice of a character, but it must be time consuming to tweet as multiple people. And kind of mentally confusing. Unless you only tweet as one character, and you don't tweet as yourself. Still, it takes me a while and some mental "space" to get into a character's head/voice (but maybe that's just me). It's hard enough for me to think of things to tweet as myself. Tweeting as a character? That seems to be inviting burnout. I do many things that invite burn out, though, so...yeah. But I suppose it could be fun. Especially with characters who behave badly. And if you enjoy it, go for it. As for me, I haven't come across any of Katniss's tweets yet--twitter is so fast-paced!--but I'm kind of curious as to what they say.
