Hello, writerlings! How goes NaNoWriMo?
Are you still alive??? Have you fallen into any plot holes and broken a leg or two? Are you ABSOLUTELY IN LOVE with your current work-in-progress? I obviously expect all updates, but first — let’s get to the questions for this month’s round of Beautiful Books! Also you can check out October’s prep questions and still do them if you want.
We’re focusing on a bit of an “update” on your novel. We want to know if you’re working hard or if your book is eating your soul. Do your family still remember who you are? Is your wordcount on track? It’s time to spill your guts and, you know, procrastinate novelling by giving us a blogging update.
May the words be EVE RIN YOUR FAVOUR. And may you be as cute as this cat whilst typing. But seriously? I doubt it. I mean, look at this cutie. You can’t compete with that.
Just like every year, we’re giving our monthly link up “Beautiful People” a small rest so we can focus on “Beautiful Books”. (You can see last year’s Stage 1, Stage 2, and Stage 3 linkups.) Sky and I host Beautiful Books so we can focus on our NaNoWriMo projects. The format is the same as Beautiful People. We’ll post 10 questions to answer about your WiP — aka your beautiful book. Answer the questions in a blog post of your own and then come back here to link up! Don’t forget to grab the blog button and link to this post.
NOTE: You can do it for ANY novel! You do not need to be doing NaNo to join in.
