Mini-Challenge
Today at The Grammarian’s Reviews we’ve been challenged to take our current read’s characters (Every Day for me) and relocate them to a different setting. Since Every Day takes place in modern day US, and A jumps bodies every day, I think I’d have to relocate A and Rhiannon to someplace like Hogwarts and the wizarding world in order to get some interesting effects (since any where else on normal-Earth would just result in the same story, just in a different place). It would be neat to see how people or creatures with magic deal with A inhabiting their bodies for a day since I feel they would figure it out what with things like Occlumency and Legilimency. Apparating and the floo network would also make it a lot easier for A to see Rhiannon as much as possible, though I think A’s potential discovery could get in the way of that.

One of the mini-challenges today is over at Reading in Winter. Kristilyn has challenged us to think of a book for every season, either a book that takes place during that season, or has the name in the title.
