Beautiful People - NaNoWriMo Edition
Hello, writers! Welcome to November's edition of Beautiful People, which is geared around NaNoWriMo. Can you believe we'll be breaking out our Word documents, pencils, and coffee in eleven days? Neither can I. Hopefully, this Beautiful People edition will make you even more excited about it than you were before.
(For those who don't know what Beautiful People is, check out this post, and also the FAQ.)
If you're not doing NaNo, then you can still participate! You can either answer the following questions about your current novel. Or, there is another option, if you are ready for a challenge.
NaNoers, listen up too. We'd like to challenge all of you to... well, a challenge. As evidenced by this blog thing, asking questions about your characters helps you get to know them. So, if you need to figure out what goes on inside your character's brain, we have a treasury of questions. This is a complete archive of all the BP questions, from March until now, and we'd like to challenge you to answer them about your main character this month. All of them.
Are you feeling brave? I hope so. ;) Whether you do it on your blog or just for yourself, we hope it'll help you get a better grasp of the way your main character's mind works. This is an optional challenge, but if you're feeling up to it, click HERE to go to the official BP archives.
However, if you're just looking to answer ten questions like you normally do, then be my guest. Here is this month's round, courtesy of Georgie and I. ;)
- Sum up your novel in five words or less.
- Novel title?
- Sum up your main character(s) in one word each.
- Advice for newbies in three words?
- Tell us about your secondary characters, how do they affect the story?
- Do you plan to stay up till midnight on the 31st?
- How many years have you done NaNo?
- What came first, characters, or plot idea?
- How much prep do you do before November?
- Now be honest, how do you really feel about NaNo?
Don't forget to sign the linky, and have fun! :)
P.S. - thanks to all who voted on the poll, telling me what you think about my design. 12 people (66%) LOVED it, and 6 people (33%) liked the other template better. I appreciated your feedback, and maybe my old design will make a reappearance in the near future. ;)
I have a new poll up, so do check it out. :)
