Project 10K (P10K) October 2018


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

November is here and with it NaNoWriMo. Where did the year go, I wonder. It’s already time to think about the badges for next year… And now off to important things, how did your writing go in October?

Here are our standard 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, questions you want to ask?

Here are my answers for October.  I was so lazy that I still owe people replies from last month. You could say that my hurt arm, which is almost 100% OK again, was an excuse to do nothing. Blogwise that’s true, and writing was difficult with one hand. In preparation for NaNoWriMo though, I did a lot of outlining and met my goal.

1. Yes, made my outline and am still hopefull for Nano. Ask me again next week (mad cackle…)

2. Yes. In-between self-doubts and self-doubts, I had fun with the characters and the plot.

3. Yes, it did. I thought, with not blogging or participating in the Friday Fictioneers challenge, this was the least I could do.

My plans for November are easy: Win the NaNoWriMo challenge. 50K words, easy-peasy, right?

How about you?  How did your writing go? Please leave a comment, or a 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 November.

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

  1. As I’ve mentioned to you elsewhere, I’ve gotten bupkis done in terms of writing lately. Well, that’s not true. I did manage to carve out a few hours last weekend to revise a short story, adding over 2K words to it, and it’s definitely better. But now it needs more revising and… Well, we’ll see. So:

    1. Nope. My goal was to write and post at least four flash fiction stories, and I only got three done. I did write a post about NaNo and my latest novel ideas, so maybe that counts. But even with the short story revisions, I don’t think I cracked 4,000 words this month.

    2. Yes, while I was writing, it was fun. And I’ve been doing some thinking and taking notes about world-building, which is also fun.

    3. Not really, since I knew there was no way I was going to hit 10K. But even if I’d set my personal goal lower this month, I was just too swamped with work and various other crises.

    4. I’m not sure what goals to set for November. Stay sane? lol! My one big goal is to revise a story that I just received an invitation to revise & resubmit from a pro mag, so I’m super excited about that. Plus I’d like to revise a couple others and send them back out. And as always, write and post at least four flash fiction challenge stories.

    Good luck with your 50K — I’m rooting for you!!!

    1. A little too much, actually. I’m more used to reviewers saying what the problem they had with it was, and maybe making suggestions for *possible* solutions. This editor straight up said what she wanted me to change — like, “I think this should happen instead.” And not just one thing like that, but quite a few. It’s a little… weird. I’ll have to look at the “suggestions” carefully to see whether I’m willing to make all of them.
