TCWT October 2012 Blog Chain


ETA: 3/30/14: *If you’re one of the awesome people who finds these past blog chain posts through search terms, you can go here to find more recent topics and to sign up for a current chain.*


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.

  1. Oh no! No email? :(
    Well, I’m not sure if I’m doing NaNo, but I’ll have decided by mid October – because it depends on whether or not I can finish the editing I’m doing in time to plan – so a later date would be good. If I am not doing it, I will just talk about my current project in a vaguely meaningful way.

  2. I’m back! And ready to write, as usual. Can I have a later day, in the “teens”? (Fourteen, twelve, eighteen, etc.)
    Info (just in case)
    Inside The Junk Drawer

  3. Sorry to tell you, but this prompt is horrible for me. It’s not your fault, of course, but I’m a pantser through and through; if I started thinking about NaNoWriMo now, I’d die when the real thing came around. Maybe. I’ll do what I can with whatever day you want to give me.

  4. I don’t know if I’ll be in NaNoWriMo (but by God I’d love to). Might be starting a month or too late. (NaNoWriXmas anyone?) But I’d love to participate :) (
