Know the Novel Part 3 - Writing and Beyond {A Writers Linkup}



IT. IS. HEEEERE! The 3rd and FINAL installment of my 3-part writers linkup Know the Novel. And I’m super excited about this one!


It is officially December (WUT???), and a ton of us have just finished NaNoWriMo and have new novels under our belts (and probably some wild stories about writing them to go with it), and thus this last part of Know the Novel is alllll about how writing the WIP went and what our next plan of action is.


If you missed any of the parts and have no clue what I’m talking about, here’s all the details!



THE INFO


Know the Novel is a 3-part linkup series, one for each of these last three months of the year. Each one will feature ten questions you can answer on your own blog (or anywhere else on social media if you’d like!). The questions will be focusing on different parts of the novel/your writing.


It goes as followed:


October

  • Part One: Introductory – These questions were centered on you telling us all about your novel and giving the fun, juicy details. And GOOD GRIEF, do you guys have some epic ideas. I looooved reading about them! Do check out all the links because there’s some seriously awesome stories being created out there.


November

  • Part Two: Within the WIP This one focused on how the writing was going, what problems and victories you experienced, your writing process, etc. Basically all the fun behind the scenes writing things! We had another fantastic turn out with this one! Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to go and comment on everyone’s posts like with part 1 because, well, #NaNoWriMo. BUT I was thrilled seeing all the links come in. You can go HERE to see everyone’s posts.


December

  • Part Three: Writing and Beyond AND HERE WE ARE. This last part’s questions are all about how the writing went overall and what’s next! EXCITING.


The gist of it is, I throw ten novel/writing-related questions your way each month, and you can answer them on your own blog.


Though I am doing this during NaNo season since, ya know, a lot of us were participating in NaNo, you DO NOT have to be doing NaNoWriMo to participate. You can answer these questions for any WIP you have. And you DID NOT have to participate in parts 1 or 2 to do this one. It’s all just for fun! There are basically no rules. Plus I love seeing what all my writer frens are working on. So share away!



Onward to the last set of questions!

 

KNOW THE NOVEL PART THREE:
WRITING AND BEYOND!

 


I’d be honored for you to use the graphic above for your own posts, but it’s certainly not required!

 

QUESTIONS


1. Firstly, how did writing this novel go all around?

2. Did it turn out like you expected or completely different? And how do you feel about the outcome?

3. What aspect of the story did you love writing about the most? (Characters, plot, setting, prose, etc.)

4. How about your least favorite part?

5. What do you feel like needs the most work?

6. How do you feel about your characters now that the novel is done? Who’s your favorite? Least favorite? Anyone surprise you? Give us all the details!

7. What’s your next plan of action with this novel?

8. If you could have your greatest dream realized for this novel, what would it be?

9. Share a snippet of one of your most favorite scenes!

10. Did you glean any new writing and/or life lessons from writing this novel?


SHARE YOUR LINK


Now for the most important part, sharing your link! Once you’ve got your post written and up, come back here and add a link to it with the widget below so others can see!



The linkup will be open through all the rest of December, but do feel free to take the questions and answer them ANY time!



Putting these linkups together has been a joy. But what made it so special was YOU GUYS. I did not expect such a big turnout. Everyone’s enthusiasm has made it 10000x more fun. I’m thrilled so many of you have joined in and enjoyed it! *GIANT GROUP HUG*


I’m thiiiinking about making this an annual thing??? Whadda think? Would you guys like to do this again? And if you DO, do you have any suggestions for improving how I run it or did you have some questions you’d like me to ask? I would LOVE your input! So do share away!

 

TALK WITH ME!

Are you excited? (Because I am!) I can’t wait to see everyone’s posts and hear about your writing experiences. Have you enjoyed this linkup? And would you like to see it return next year? I’d love to hear from you! Thank you all again for joining in! IT’S BEEN SO MUCH FUN!

  12. The link that I had put isn't working because for whatever reason it goes to my editor. Instead, I took it down and the correct link is here: https://carolineknightley.wordpress.com/2019/01/01/know-the-novel-part-3/
    Sorry for the inconvenience!
