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.
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.
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.
