Project 10K (P10K) March 2019


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

The year marches on and we’ve arrived in April.  How did you do? Did you have a chance to write? Did important things prevent you from writing? Tell us all about it.

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 March: I managed to do what I wanted to do. Work-wise I got my writing done, the audit is over and now I’m tired. I did all the Friday Fictioneers challenges in March, that felt good. There wasn’t any other creative writing but that hadn’t been the goal, I knew I’d be too worn out to write. So:

  1. Yes.
  2. It was a work project, no fun, but now I’m done.
  3. Yes it did. It kept me going.
  4. Nothing to see, move along…

My goals for April are:

I want to get back into ‘The Unfinished’ again. My goal isthe project with 20 hours of plotting, scheming, editing, researching, anything to get back into ‘my’ world in April.

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 April.

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

  1. I feel like the appropriate response is hysterical laughter. Or maybe maniacal? HA, HA, HA, HA, HA, HA, HA, HA, HA, HA, HA, HA, no. As predicted, my work deadlines kept me from doing any real creative writing, and I didn’t even manage to do a single flash fiction challenge all month. Even when I “took off” a weekend to go to a SFF fan con, I ended up working through half of it. I did manage to finally submit a big report at work that we’ve been working on for over a year; minus the appendices and references, it clocked in at just over 49,000. Not all of those words were written by me in March, but a surprisingly high number of them were, and all of them were revised by me. And that doesn’t count the three proposals I wrote, and the student projects, and… sigh. So yeah, March was basically Work-NaNo. April is gearing up to require even more work writing. I’m still hoping to get at least one flash fiction piece out but I’m not holding my breath.

    Looking forward to getting back into the groove in May!

    1. heeheh. Gallows humour, eh? But the challenge is not for fiction writing only, you know that. I know, you want to focus on the fiction, so do I. However, I find it rewarding to count the hours or words for this kind of work project. Mind you, my job doesn’t require that as often as yours obviously does, but I find it helpful. Grab the writing badge, you earned it.

  2. Well, Gaby, I spent the month of March rewriting the ending to The Pole That Threads (Book 3 of The Spinner’s Game, aka Asaric Tales). I should complete its final polish today. And then there were Sammi’s Weekend Challenges, and What Pegman Saw, and my own Crimson’s Creative Challenge, and loads of photos … so I kept busy. April? I’m commited to a line edit of a friend’s novel; it’s not a short novel, so that could occupy my month. Any days left over, I’ll start the revision/rewrite of Asaric Tales Book Five while waiting for returns from betas who are currently reading Book Four. The project pregresses.
    Wish you well on hitting your targets in April.
