TCWT March 2015 Blog Chain

tcwt (3)

Hey guys! Apologies for posting this late. My life recently has stayed on course with this tweet. (Also – I’m hoping to catch up on blog chain comments when my exams are over in a few days. Sorry about being so slow on that as well.)

For the March blog chain topic, I’m borrowing a suggestion made by Julia, one of my TCWT co-bloggers, and focusing on books in non-novel formats. By that I mean plays, short story collections, poetry collections, essays, and memoirs, among other things.

“What are your thoughts on reading or writing books in non-novel formats? Are there any you’ve particularly enjoyed?” 

Like with most topics, I really want this one to be as open as possible. I know most people on here stick to the novel format, which means not everyone has personal experience actually writing, say, a screenplay (though if you have, that’d make for an awesome post!). So you’re welcome instead to talk about non-novels books that you, as a reader, have enjoyed, or, if you’d like, you can do away with the rest of the topic and just post your thoughts in general on certain types of non-novel formats. For example, serialized novels have been growing in popularity recently–what do you think of that? Do you feel serials can work? Will they stick around? Would you be willing to read one? Or maybe you’re a big fan of celebrity memoirs–what are your favorites? How do you choose which to read? You can even talk about a movie or TV show you really loved, as long as you focus specifically on the script. Anything goes, as far as I’m concerned.

As usual, just comment below with a link to your blog and I’ll assign you a date. The schedule will go up on March 5th; the blog chain will begin on March 6th.

[If you’re new to the site and are wondering what the blog chain is, you can find out more here. You are also more than welcome to join in. We’re always looking for more participants!]

      Awesome! I’ll put you down for the 8th. 🙂

    Put me down for something towards the end of the month, if you would. 🙂 My term finishes in two weeks’ time, so I’ll have more time for blogging.

    • John Hansen
      March 4, 2015

      I’ll put you down for the 23rd. Good luck with the end of the term!

    This one sounds like fun! I can’t exactly say I have a lot of experience writing in non-novel formats, but it’ll still be interesting to discuss. Could I have the 29th?

    • John Hansen
      March 4, 2015

      Hey! So it doesn’t look like we’ll have enough people for me to schedule the 29th, unfortunately. I have you tentatively down for the 26th, which is currently the latest date, and I’ll keep pushing your date back as late as possible if more people join. Does that sound okay? (But I’d plan on the 26th.) Sorry for any inconvenience!

      • Bridget
        March 4, 2015

        Alright, the 26th works. I was mainly pushing for the 29th because I already have a post for another link up scheduled that week, but it isn’t a big deal.

    Usually I don’t like being specific, but this time I kind of have to be… Would it be okay if I took March 12?

    Also, I was wondering—I know I follow you on Twitter, but is there a specific TCWT Twitter account for your whole staff? Just wondering; I would love being able to share the posts if it was out there.

    • John Hansen
      March 4, 2015

      Sure thing! I’ll put you down for then. 🙂

      Also – we don’t have a formal account, no. You can follow each of the members individually (see the “About” pages for Twitter links), though!

    Sorry, but March is my busiest month. I’d still love to be a part of the chain, maybe on a weekend at the end of the month.

    • John Hansen
      March 4, 2015

      I’ll put you down for the 21st, a Saturday. 🙂

    This sounds like an awesome prompt! I have a lot of opinions on this topic. :3 My spring break starts on March 16th, I believe, so anything on that week works. 🙂

    I must really be telepathic, since this is what I was thinking about last night! I actually have a plot that’s going to need a non-standard format to execute…
    I don’t know what time I’d like, but…

      *quickly hides mind-reading equipment* Yes… very strange… *laughs nervously*

      Sounds good! I’ll put you down for the 15th, if that works. 🙂

        March 4, 2015

        Hey! You’re not supposed to use that on a telepath! You might end up wanted by the FBI! 😛
        Sounds good. 🙂

      Ahh, welcome to the chain! We’re excited to have you!

      Someone above you requested the 13th, so will it be okay if I give you the 14th instead? You can always write your post on the 13th and schedule it to publish the next day, if that’s an issue. Thank you–and sorry to be a pain!
