Changing the world's opinion… as soon as we finish this math homework
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!]
