Project 10K (P10K) May 2019


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

How was your May? 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 May: Nope, a big fat fail. The first two weeks I was insanely busy but did work a bit on my project and then a nasty cold which just didn’t want to go away (still a bit of a cough left) pushed me off my feet. I did think about the writing a lot, but I didn’t actually sit down and open the file. I read a lot more than usual though. To sum it up :

  1. No.
  2. While I was at it, I did.
  3. Yes, but sometimes work comes first, and with the cold, nothing motivated me much..
  4. Nothing

My goals for June are:

Same goals as for May, hopefully with more success. 20 hours of plotting, scheming, editing, researching… and a bit of writing in-between.

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 June.

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

  1. I sympathize about being busy at work — and, as I’ve mentioned before, can definitely relate to that! I managed to finish some of the worst of my deadlines, but there are still so many tasks left undone, and so many new projects starting, that the pressure hasn’t let up nearly as much as I was hoping. Still, I’m going to try to re-establish a more reasonable balance between work and life over the summer, and see how I can manage. I simply can’t keep up this way, I’m too burnt out.

    1. Nope. I did manage to do more in May than in previous months, in that I wrote and posted THREE flash fiction challenges. But that’s not even 500 words total.

    2. I did enjoy writing those stories, and I enjoyed thinking about and taking notes on some of my longer stories (including a new one I’m simmering on the back burner). It’s nice to feel like more in the groove again, even if I’m not producing a ton yet.

    3. P10K always helps, even if it’s just to remind myself that yes, I will get back to this soon.

    4. My goals for June are still a bit hazy. I definitely want to do four flash fiction stories, and revise at least one of my short stories to take to my critique group. I should also revisit all those stories that have been submitted and rejected, and send them back out again, and maybe revise a bit before I do. I also have a lot of worldbuilding notes to compile and organize, and that will take a *lot* of time and brainpower. Another problem is that I’m throwing a big party next weekend for my birthday, which means the first third of June is taken up with cleaning and cooking and prepping for that. So we’ll see what I can accomplish in the last 20 days of the month.

  2. I can’t believe I overlooked this, I’m so sorry.
    Yay! You’re back in the groove, that’s great.
    And happy belated birthday, I hope you had a great day, and a wonderful party.
