Introducing A Novel Idea: A Linkup For Writers

A Novel Idea

As someone who is a writer that has spent a lot of time not writing, I find it a lot easier to write when I think about my plot line and characters in a different and interesting sort-of way. Which is why I had decided to link up to Beautiful People hosted by Notebook Sisters. 

But, that didn’t help me enough. I wanted something that would get me into writing once a week. Something that would make me think about my characters and what I was writing. 

Which is why I decided to start a linkup for writers called A Novel Idea. There will be 2-5 questions every week to help you work on your characters or plot and will make you think. 

If nothing else, it will help ME write! 

So, do you want to join? Please link up below! 

We’re gonna start out easy this first week, and each Saturday the questions will get harder and harder! 🙂

  1. What’s his/her name? Are they named after someone?
  2. Do they have a nickname? 
  3. How old are they?
  4. Hairstyle? Straight, curly, short, long, etc? 
  5. Eyes? Color, size, etc?

  • Oohh, another linkup! I love this, too. Now I’ve a bit-sized linkup for each week to keep me occupied during the month. After all, it is just slightly agonizing to have to wait an entire month, you know! I’ll be posting mine shortly. 🙂

    • Thanks so much for linking up!! You’re the first one — other than me! Share with your writing friends, please!

      • Yes, that’s kind of cool (for me)!

        Of course I shall! In fact, I’ll force my sister to do it. She procrastinates too much and needs to get working on her book so I can read past the first 9 pages. 😉 I’ve added you to my “Linkups” page, too. I hope lots of people link up!

        • So do I!! 🙂 I’m hoping to get more people to link up, but who knows? It might take a while to take off. We’ll see!

          • Who knows, right? We shall see.

            Oh look, Nadd did it! *leaves to read his post*

          • Yes! YAY for more people! I hope that we get some more people! They have ’til next Friday to link up before next week’s post!! 😀

          • Hmm. The sister says she’ll look tomorrow. Like I said, she procrastinates. I mean, it’s not like *I* ever procrastinate…

            “She’s kidding.”

            Uh, thanks, AnnDrew.

            “You’re welcome.” *smiles brightly*

  • Oh, question: how do you out those HTML boxes in your post?

    • The easiest way is to go into your html on your blog post (usually under text?) and then put it in there.

      • I meant, what’s the HTML for it?

        • The HTML is so that it’s easy to grab the button and you don’t have to copy and paste it.

          • Hmm, let me try the rephrase this… If I wanted to put that box with the HTML inside it in a post, how would I do that?

          • You’ll copy and paste it into the html of your post. I’m not sure exactly how to do that on blogspot. 🙁

          • Okay. Thanks anyhow 🙂

  • Sky

    Love this! I linked up and I am seriously SO excited to do more! I can’t wait for next week!

  • Ah, she’s finally done it! That’s her (my sister) with the pic of the church. She kept going on Facebook! I bugged her so much about it, though. 3:) My other sister might do it, too, but I don’t think she’s seen my message yet. We’ve been busy being creepy (hanging out with each others characters and such).

    You got six so far, besides yourself! That’s pretty awesome!

    • Well, your sister has ’til tomorrow, and then the linky goes away. BUT, if she still does it and it’s not there, have her comment the link and I’ll still go to her blog and read up 😉
