You’ll find the rules and some of the earlier badges on the Project 10K Page.
Happy New Year!
I hope you had great holidays/end of year celebrations. I always enjoy this time because for my SO and me it is a quiet time, a time to relax (and eat too much). There’s time to think about plotting or writing as well. Let’s all raise our glasses or cups or mugs with the beverage of choice and hope for a productive, creative year with fun and few woes where writing is concerned. To you all and your families I wish a happy and healthy year, boring and safe and not in the least ‘interesting’ in the sense of the curse.
Now back on topic: 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. Your plans for the new year or anything else you want to tell us, questions you want to ask?
Here are my answers for December. After the NaNoWriMo I made a list of things I wanted to do as a project this month. This was mostly research, but also thinking through a few problematic plot points. I’m happy with what I did so far, I got all my maps and while I was studying them, I found some details that were helpful for the plot. Looking at pictures helps me a lot, it’s a bit like diving into the world of my characters.
1. Yes, I worked through the items of my list for this month. I will grab the P badge for myself.
2. Yes, I had a lot of fun looking at maps and pictures. I researched and read some papers to keep me as close to facts as possible. This is too much fun, it detracts from writing… 🙂
3. Yes it did.
4. My plans for 2019: get better with the Friday Fictioneers. I was absent for far too long now. I’ve been staring at the pictures every week, but ideas just didn’t come. This needs more of an effort. I enjoy the Friday Fictioneers challenge and group.
My plans for January (and February) are: Editing. NaNoWriMo has the NaNoNow What? events in January and February for editing and I want to use this as incentive for a thorough first edit.
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 January.
