Project 10K (P10K) March 2018


You’ll find the rules and some of the earlier badges on the Project 10K Page.

April is here, but I won’t fool you… instead I’ll have some easter eggs and stuff myself in preparation for the Camp NaNoWriMo. Yes, I’m crazy enough to have joined the lovely Camp Plot Bunnies again. But let’s get to our monthly questions:

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?

Here are my answers:

  1. I managed one flash fiction story. Yay me. It’s still an F, but I hope to get better because the writing part of my head isn’t quite the black hole any longer that it’s been for months now.
  2. I did even though I felt very rusty.
  3. Yes, that and the upcoming Camp NaNoWriMo. I wanted to get into writing  mode again and I think I’m getting there slowly..

My goals for April are:

Writing more flash fiction, now that the muse seems to have come visiting again. My project for the Camp NaNoWriMo is leisurely, I want to combine all the research, ideas and so on from an earlier project and maybe work on an outline. This would be a project goal if I can make it. I also have a writing goal, but that is work related. I have to work on documentation and risk assessments to make my department ready for the European General Data Protection Regulation. So I’ll make this my writing goal to get me through this rather annoying and boring stuff.  With two goals, I hope to have something else but F next month.

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.

If you see this for the first time and this challenge interests you: Everyone is welcome, hop right in.

  1. You did not fail! Give yourself a pat on the back for your Friday Fictoneers flash – that was a definite success.
    As for next month’s goals, good luck with Camp Nano and the Data Regulation document, although I know where my focus would be given the choice.

    1. Thank you, Sarah Ann. I know where my preferences are… but the data regulations stuff is part of my job, which gives me money, so… 😀 I need every incentive I can get for that stuff, when I can push myself a bit with the P10K there’ll be at least some fun elements.


  2. Every flash fiction piece counts. Every single word counts! But more important is, having FUN counts! Not that it’ll be easy sailing from now on — or if you do find the trick for that, clue me in, will you? LOL

    1. I did meet my goals for last month, even though I had to skip a wine-tasting party and stay home furiously editing on a Saturday night to do it. I got four flash fiction pieces posted, plus enough new words and edits on one novel and two short stories to just barely squeak over the 10K mark.

    2. I *did* have fun! This new novel I’m seeing on the side is especially intriguing, and it feels good to finally make some progress revising these short stories.

    3. P10K was crucial! No way would I have done that last push if it weren’t for keeping track like this.

    4. Well as you know, I’ll be doing CAMP NANO this month. WOO HOO! I am still going to try to do four flash fiction challenges, although that’s a second priority. My Camp NaNo goal is to submit 25K worth of stories to publications. (Eep.) I’m not getting credit for revisions for my Camp goal, but I’ll still keep track for my P10K goal. Whew, it’s going to be a busy month!


    1. I really don’t know how you do it. And skipping a wine-tasting party… nononono! That really is dedication. I’d rather skip sleep though. 🙂 When I (pretend to) write late at night, I want my wine.

      1. Well first off, I never claimed that I didn’t *drink* any wine, just that I didn’t go to the party. LOL! And secondly, it was half an excuse anyway — I’d been home in my jammies finishing the beta read for Crispina all day. And when it gets to be 6pm and I still haven’t gotten dressed and put on makeup and left the house, well, it’s just not going to happen. 😉

        1. Oddly enough, this sounds very familiar. That could well have been me in my younger days. Now I’m terrorized by a cat and a dog (not to mention the SO) and not going out of the house is out of the question.
