Seventeen questions to ask your novel

I've recently discovered that one of my fellow writing tutors has a most excellent blog at This Itch of Writing.

As I'm tentatively poking at a couple of my novels that have languished for a while, I thought this recent checklist she posted would be useful to me and hence I'm passing it on.

Seventeen questions to ask your novel

As Emma says in the comments, you don't need to know all the answers upfront, but even if you're a Discover-The-Story-As-You-Write sort of writer, you ought to know the answers when the novel is finished. If not, it probably needs a little more work. :)

I believe today is supposed to be piday

Unfortunately, piday doesn't work with UK dates. Today is 14/3/11, which just doesn't resemble PI in any shape or form. Sadly, there is no 31 April, because otherwise that would be the day over here. :)

The only option would be to celebrate July 22nd, which would be 22/7.
