This is a bittersweet post today, because it’s the end of the Beautiful People linkup.
I’m going to say “for now” though, because both Sky and I are just not able to keep going currently and we’ve decided to take this year off. But who knows about next year?! Anything might happen. It might return, I might rule the moon, I might also learn to use vulnerably and venerably in the right context. EXCITING.
Massive thank yous to everyone who’s participated over the last 4 years! It’s been a pleasure reading your posts and building an awesome writer community.
You can also still go visit the archives if you want to save the old questions or use them still!
We’re doing a bit of a throwback and favourites edition to say goodbye, so hope you enjoy!
Beautiful People is a writing blog meme which I co-host with the marvellous Sky @ Further Up and Further. We post questions at the beginning of each month (generally around the 5th) that you can answer on your own blogs! It’s designed (A) to help you get to know your characters better, and (B) share with us about your writing projects!
The linkup is open all month. And check out our FAQ page for more details and to see the archives.
DON’T FORGET TO TAKE THE BUTTON! And link to this page so anyone can join in!
