Sounds simple, right? And it is, until you're staring at the blank page or a blinking cursor. Sometimes all it takes is a little nudge, a little accountability, to get the words... some words... any words flowing.
And that's what findyourwords is all about. :D Writers write.
Sound like your thing? This is what you do:
- Join the comm. The posts are members only, so if you don't join, there's no way for us to track your progress.
- Set a goal. How many words do you want to write in 2011?
- Got a non-word count goal? Are timed exercises more your thing? Want to write every day? Want to finish your novel? You can tell us about that too (although we won't be tracking these).
- Status posts will be made once a week, on Fridays. Comment with how much you've written since the previous status post, and we'll keep up with your totals. (I realize 2011 ends on a Saturday, so it would make sense to have status posts on Saturdays, but I don't want to be tied to updating on a weekend.)
(We're very precise around here. :D )
Prompt posts will be made once a week with pictures, words, lyrics, quotes, etc., to inspire your muse and help you find your words. If you've got ideas for prompts, let us know.
Check the profile page for the FAQ. It's short, I promise. Questions, comments, cries of despair? Suggestions on how to make the comm better? Want to help out? This is the place to comment.
This is my comm now but it was meredevachon's first, and I want to publicly thank her for setting it up and then turning it over to me. All the initial set-up is hers. I even mostly copied her original sign-up posts. :D
