Hello, writerlings! Are you still alive? Has NaNoWriMo eaten you whole? Are you still SANE?!!
What is it Beautiful Books exactly!?
Beautiful Books is a three-month-long blog event linkup focused on three different stages of writing: plotting, writing, and editing. It was designed with NaNoWriMo in mind. NaNoWriMo is a writing event where you write a 50,000 word novel in a month. Because a lot of writers will be participating, we decided to help get your juices flowing! We’ll be focusing on plotting in October, writing in November, and editing in December. See how organised we are? Super cool.
Do I have to be doing NaNo to participate?
Nope! Just pick a work-in-progress and you’ll be good to go. If you don’t have a novel that works for the entirety of the blog event, you can feature different ones. The point is, you absolutely don’t have to do NaNoWriMo to participate, and we really want you to join! We also want your friends to join, so if you have writing groups…spread the word!
Are you ready for this?!
The Questions for Round #2: How’s The Writing Going?
- Be honest: how is your writing going?
- What’s your first sentence/paragraph?
- Do you have a book cover, and/or pictures that reflect your book?
- Do you have pictures of each of your characters? If not, describe them for us! (Be as descriptive as you can.)
- What scene are you most excited to write?
- Share a snippet or a scene that you really enjoyed writing.
- Now that you’re writing, have any of the plot details, or the process itself, turned out different from what you planned or imagined?
- Is there a character or aspect of your plot that’s difficult to write?
- What’s your favorite aspect of this novel so far? Favorite character?
- Have you drawn off of any life experiences or people you know to create your novel and your characters?
- Do you have a playlist or certain song for your novel and/or characters?
- Let’s have some fun for a moment: imagine you are somehow transported into your book’s world. Which character are you most likely to be found hanging out with?
- How do you keep yourself motivated to finish your daily wordcount? (Pinterest? Internet breaks? Chocolate?)
- What your favourite writing quote or piece of writing advice?
- How does this book make you feel so far? Are you laughing? Crying? Frustrated?
A little teeny tiny note:
