You’ll find the rules and some of the earlier badges on the Project 10K Page.
I can’t believe January’s already gone… I hope you all started into the new year with good ideas and fresh enthusiasm. Onwards to the same procedure as every month…
Do you need a little incentive for writing more regularly? Then this project is for you.
1. Did you meet your writing/editing goals?
2. Did you have fun writing?
3. Did the P10K help with motivation?
4. Anything else you want to tell us?
5. We’ve answered the same questions again and again. If you would like to have different questions, or more questions, please tell me.
Here are my answers:
- An F again. I had the vague hope that I’d be able to take part in the Friday Fictioneers challenge, at least twice a month, but I kept staring at the pictures and nothing, absolutely nothing came. My brain must have a leak somewhere. Ideas flutter here and there, but before I can catch one, it’s gone. I’ll be staring at pictures some more during February… there’s always hope. I did enroll for auditing two coursera courses for creative writing, The Craft of Plot and The Craft of Setting and Description. When you’re auditing, you can’t participate in the assignments, so no peer reviews for me and no reviewing of other work from me. I did complete the first assignment, wrote about 350 words, but it is bad. I love the courses, but they demoralize me. I’ll talk more about them in another post.
- I enjoy the writing courses, these are the first courses on creative writing I took. The writing itself is like pulling teeth.
- It was nagging at me, but not compelling enough to make me write anything of substance.
- Not really.
My goals for February are:
Since I seem to have a medium to severe case of writers’ block, I won’t plan for too much. If the muse comes back, I’ll run back to the Fictioneers, whom I miss. At least I’ll aim for making one blog post per week, talking about the two coursera courses in the creative writing specialization I’m auditing.
And how did your writing go? Please leave a comment, or link to your blog if you write about it there. I’d really like to hear about your month.
And, as always, good luck, and many good ideas for February.
