30 Day NaNoWriMo Tag Challenge

As Day One of NaNoWriMo begins, so begins our 30-Day NaNoWriMo Tag Challenge. The questions are below, so feel free to join in :)

Day One.

Have you ever done NaNoWriMo before? If yes, what years and what was the end result? If not, what made you participate this year, and what are your expectations?

Day Two.

You’ve committed to 30 days of hard core writing, what are you most worried about?

Day Three.

What’s your story called? What does it mean? How does it represent the story? Are you happy with it?

Day Four.

How did you choose which story to write for NaNoWriMo? Was it the only idea you had? One you’d been planning for ages? One of many?

Day Five.

Tell us about the inspiration behind your novel. What’s its story?

Day Six.

Pick a female character, and tell us about her, from her point of view.

Day Seven.

What genre is your book? Is this a genre you normally work with? If not, how do you feel about treading new ground?

Day Eight.

Choose two songs from your NaNoWriMo playlist. What do they say about your story? Do they connect with your characters? Their personalities? The things that they will face?

Day Nine.

Where do you write? In bed? In an office? At work? On the toilet?

Day Ten.

How much writing do you do in months other than when you’re participating in NaNoWriMo or Camp NaNoWriMo?

Day Eleven.

Tell us a fun (writing) fact about you.

Day Twelve.

Name a book that has really inspired your writing.

Day Thirteen.

What is your current word count? How do you feel about it? Are you meeting your goals?

Day Fourteen.

Half way through, how many friends and family know about NaNoWriMo? Have they been supportive? How do they feel about your challenge?

Day Fifteen.

What has been the biggest challenge, so far, with regards to writing your novel?

Day Sixteen.

A lot of writers find the idea of writing 1,667 words every day, for a while month, quite stressful. How do you think you’re doing, in terms of stress? Does stress motivate you?

Day Seventeen.

Writers are often known for their heavy caffeine intake. Do you drink a lot of coffee? If not, what is your beverage of choice?

Day Eighteen.

Share some lyrics that you think are inspiring. They don’t have to relate, or connect, to your actual writing or writing process.

Day Nineteen.

If you’re facing a sticky patch – either writers block, or a general struggle knowing how to progress your chapter – what do you do to get your head around it?

Day Twenty.

It is often said that “real” writers don’t take part in NaNoWriMo. In your opinion, what is a “real” writer?

Day Twenty One.

Pick a male character, and tell us about him, from his point of view.

Day Twenty Two.

Where is your novel set?

Day Twenty Three.

Describe one protagonist’s appearance, in great detail. This could be one you’ve mentioned before, or not.

Day Twenty Four.

How are you feeling about NaNoWriMo at this point?

Day Twenty Five.

If you have completed NaNoWriMo before, what happened to your previous novel? Did you finish it? Bin it? Still editing it? Or is it hidden away in the To-Do Pile for further work?

Day Twenty Six.

Other than writing, what are your other passions?

Day Twenty Seven.

If you could have written any other novel by any other author, which one would it be?

Day Twenty Eight.

How has NaNoWriMo affected your life? Have you cancelled anything? Put off anything? Forgotten anything, or anyone?

Day Twenty Nine.

Have you been giving yourself goals along the way? How have you rewarded yourself when you have met those goals?

Day Thirty.

Final day. How are you doing? Finished? Nearly there? On the verge of cracking up? How do you feel the month has gone?

Good Luck :)
