Well, it’s almost October, which means it’s almost November, which means it’s almost time for–you guessed it–NaNoWriMo. That sound you now hear is the entire writing community freaking out.
And to celebrate NaNo drawing so near, I decided that, for this month’s chain, we should all start planning our NaNo novels. That’s why this month’s prompt is:
“What are you writing for NaNoWriMo? Briefly explain how this book idea come about. Then write a mock first page for the novel.”
Even if you’re not doing NaNoWriMo, you’re still welcome to participate; all you need to do is apply the prompt to a new book idea of yours instead. But if you are doing NaNo, be sure to link us to your NaNo profile (if you have one) in the post so we can all connect with each other.
Also, if you plan to change your book idea later on or have two that you’re deciding between or don’t know yet (you can honestly make up a book idea), then that’s also fine. Just pick any random idea to use. This is just a fun exercise; it’s okay if the book changes later on, or if you end up scrapping the first page immediately after the chain ends.
Thanks! Let me know if you have any questions.
