So, I have several projects to tackle, and I thought it might be a good idea to do it in a formally structured way, with accountability and updates and all that. Starting on Monday, I'm going to approach my projects in a focused way, as if I were attending classes/with a formal schedule, and I wanted to see if anyone else wanted to join in with their own papers/projects/goals? I'll be doing this all week, but next weekend I'll set aside some Formal (Fiction) Writing time if anyone can only do that. This means I'll be: *setting daily goals *checking in *accepting challenges/giving challenges to others *recording word count
*doing IRT pomodoro sprints My projects include: *edits on one book chapter *a new outline for an article *reading 30 articles for an awards committee, with comments *doing a 2-day a week course on genre theory
*two blog posts If I hit those goals, I have several others to add, including: *write rough draft of the article I'm outlining *outline another article, and have at least three potential journals to submit to *draft a CFP for a conference *send out a proposal for a study group
*draft writing plan for the next 3-6 mos *write up Scenes Needed lists for two fiction WIPs Anyone else care to play along? Even if not, I'll be acting as if this is a big, important thing, and will be using this thread to check in and keep myself accountable.
