As Day One of NaNoWriMo begins, so begins our 30-Day NaNoWriMo Tag Challenge. The questions are below, so feel free to join in 🙂
Have you ever done NaNoWriMo before? If yes, what years and what was the end result? If not, what made you participate this year, and what are your expectations?
You’ve committed to 30 days of hard core writing, what are you most worried about?
What’s your story called? What does it mean? How does it represent the story? Are you happy with it?
How did you choose which story to write for NaNoWriMo? Was it the only idea you had? One you’d been planning for ages? One of many?
Tell us about the inspiration behind your novel. What’s its story?
Pick a female character, and tell us about her, from her point of view.
What genre is your book? Is this a genre you normally work with? If not, how do you feel about treading new ground?
Choose two songs from your NaNoWriMo playlist. What do they say about your story? Do they connect with your characters? Their personalities? The things that they will face?
Where do you write? In bed? In an office? At work? On the toilet?
How much writing do you do in months other than when you’re participating in NaNoWriMo or Camp NaNoWriMo?
Tell us a fun (writing) fact about you.
Name a book that has really inspired your writing.
What is your current word count? How do you feel about it? Are you meeting your goals?
Half way through, how many friends and family know about NaNoWriMo? Have they been supportive? How do they feel about your challenge?
What has been the biggest challenge, so far, with regards to writing your novel?
A lot of writers find the idea of writing 1,667 words every day, for a while month, quite stressful. How do you think you’re doing, in terms of stress? Does stress motivate you?
Writers are often known for their heavy caffeine intake. Do you drink a lot of coffee? If not, what is your beverage of choice?
Share some lyrics that you think are inspiring. They don’t have to relate, or connect, to your actual writing or writing process.
