Writers write.

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

So what's this thing all about, anyway?

Prompt posts will be made a couple of times 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.

I want to publicly thank meredevachon for setting up this comm last year and modding and maintaining, and then turning it over to me. All the initial set-up is hers. I even mostly copied her original sign-up posts. :D

Just a quick reminder that sign-ups close at 11:59 PM PST, 31 january. That's a little less than 36 hours away.

So now's the time to set your goal, if you haven't already, or to change your goal now that you've seen how the writing is going.

Remember, after sign-ups close, you'll be allowed to change your goal only once.

We will be posting a finalized list of participants and their goals once sign-ups close to make sure everything is entered correctly.

Sounds simple, right? Until you're staring at the blank page or blinking cursor in front of you, that is. Sometimes all it takes is a little nudge, a little accountability, to get the words... some words... any words flowing.

That's what findyourwords is all about, and it's almost as simple as writers write.

- Join the comm. The posts will be 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 '09?
- 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. Comment with how much you've written since the previous status post, and we'll keep up with your totals.

We may also have smaller (and completely optional) challenges throughout the year, so keep an eye out.

See the profile page for the (currently very short) FAQ. Got other questions? Suggestions on how to make the comm better? Want to know how you can help out? Comment to this post.
