Oh, blogglings, I’m busting with oodles of excitement today! It’s been boiling in the pot for a while, but finally I get to announce the re-launch of the writers meme: Beautiful People. What is this? HUZZAH! I will tell you all.
Several years ago my friend Sky @ Further Up and Further In hosted a writers meme, called (guess?) Beautiful People. It’s involves a monthly set of interview questions to help you (and your blog readers) get to know your characters from your works-in-progress. It’s awesome for writers! So much fun! And it then shut down. Wherein we all wailed. But now Sky’s re-launching it, and because she’s awesome, she asked me if Notebook Sisters wanted to co-host.
Do I? DO I?
After I finished being ecstatic out of my skull, I said, “Heck yeah,” and we began brainstorming.
If you look to our header, there’s a new tag titled “Beautiful People” and you’ll be able to go there for aaaall the info, the buttons, and the dates. Until then, I’ll pop a little FAQ on this post and then leave you with a delicious question. Mwahaha.
You can also read a post, done by the wonderful Sky, to get a feel of the meme!
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. 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?
Why is it called Beautiful People?
Originally, Sky and her previous co-host Georgie coined the term! The general idea is that our characters are beautiful people with their own stories that deserve to be told.
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.
And this is where YOU come in, blogglings. The first BP (yeah, I’m too lazy to type “Beautiful People” PLUS I live in Australia, so naturally it has a nick-name) will launch on the 5th of June, just under 3 weeks away! We have some intro questions for the first round, but we want YOU to submit interview questions too.
You can throw them in the comments below…or, if you want, you can email them to me at firstname.lastname@example.org!
Ready for some writer meme madness? Huzzah! Woot! WE CAN’T WAIT.
do you have any suggestions of interview questions? and what do you think of the re-launch of the beautiful people writers meme? excited? (will you be linking up?)
Cait isn’t just a ferocious eater of books. She writes too. Always nice fluffy stories, like blood sucking faeries and ancient Greek boxing-to-the-death and apocalyptic robot wars. Fluffy, see? Currently she’s working on plots for a book that was NOT supposed to have a sequel. Between writing, she’s reading The Minnow.
