And we’re BACK! With another round of the Beautiful People linkup for writers!
What happened to the April edition, you ask? IT DIDN’T HAPPEN, THAT’S WHAT. Blame it on Camp NaNoWriMo (which Sky and I participated in splendidly) and on busyness of life in general, and oh, you can totally blame it on cake too. Cake is distracting.
But here we are again. No need to panic.
Don’t forget to try and stop by to visit some other blogs linked up! (I do my best to visit everyone but…I fail. I need 9 more eyeballs, peoples.) You can make some glorious writerly friends this way. And if you have any question and/or theme suggestions — YELL NICELY AT US. We listen.
[accordion_wrap][accordion id=”one” title=” >> CLICK TO READ WHAT BEAUTIFUL PEOPLE IS ABOUT” open=”false”]If you’re new here (greetings, mortal) this is a linkup hosted by Sky @ Further Up and Further In and me! It’s aimed at writers so they can answer the questions about their characters and their books. It’s designed to help you get to know your book better! (And also give your followers a sneak peek of your works-in-progresses.)
The linkup is open all month. Just a) grab the questions, b) answer them on your own blog, c) either link to our blogs or take the official button, and d) linkup below!
You can check out the official page (FAQs and examples and archive of previous lists) if you wish.[/accordion][accordion id=”two” title=” >> FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS” open=”false” ]What is Beautiful People? Beautiful People is for writers. Every month, we post a list of 10 questions for you to answer about your characters (or your novels). It’s designed to help you get to know your characters – their quirks, their personality, their flaws, and who they are.
Can I join Beautiful People anytime? Absolutely. It’s designed so you can jump in whenever new questions are posted. They’ll be posted at the beginning of the month, but you can join in at aaaany time.
Can I submit questions to Beautiful People? Yes! In fact, we encourage it. If you’d like to submit questions, you have two choices. Either leave a comment on Paper Fury or Further Up and Further In, or send us emails. Whichever way you choose, we’ll attempt to use your questions.
When is it? The meme is live on the 5th of every month! You can join in at any time during the month, just add your post-url to the linky. And don’t forget we’d love you to share the comment-love and visit some fellow linkers.[/accordion]
