Okey, dokey, Mr. Pulley, you caught us all red-handed and NOT reporting in our 500-daily word output. I know I personally have been putting out more than 5,000 words a day, just tippy-tappy-typing away on all kinds of writing projects, mostly NOT for pieces for sale or for my blog. And I haven’t been writing my normal 500-words a day on paid iWriter assignments either. No, all my writing energy has been focused on getting my two new sites up and running, but not on writing posts for the sites themselves. Just logistical stuff and asking lots of questions, that kind of thing.
So, today I recommit to each of you that I WILL write those 500 words again, but now have some catching up to do. So here’s what I propose…
Bare with me on this as it’s just a brainstorm right now. Everyday, I’ll come back here to post these things to help me mark the trail and the milestones along our way:
- Today’s date
- Number of days since January 1, 2012
- Number of days remaining in the year
- How many words I owe myself and our little writer’s club to date
- How many words I wrote, posted, and left a link to today.
- My cumulative total of words on my account, whether positive or negative. Meaning I either need to write more to catch up or either I’m on track and ahead of my goals.
- The article title of what I wrote/posted/linked to today.
So what do yall think? I’m thinking this might help me be more accountable to actually put it on my ToDo list to come here for a few minutes to post my progress each day. And if I miss a few days, as John caught us all doing, then no problem. I’ll just make sure that when I do check back in with yall, I’ll post my updates to mark my spot. Then once a week or month or so, I’ll be glad to hunt you all down like a houndog, grab you by the neck, and kindly cajole you to come back to our little clubhouse to post your own progress and article links, lol.
So watcha think? Too much? Not enough? Helpful or not? Please, pretty please, I would so love this help in staying accountable to my goals. Any other suggestions or comments would be very welcome. Let’s all keep talking here as I think we could really help and support each other on this.
And Jules, I know you said you’re more of a techy so may not want to play this game with us here, but I would love to be able to call on your expertise on occasion if you’re willing. Some of us have already mentioned that the techy stuff can get in our way sometimes, so I know we’d all appreciate knowing there’s someone out there we could call on for those kinds of things. Your helping me with the Google Alerts thangy was so nice of you and has been a boon to helping me better sort through invaluable info I had been missing because of the hassle involved. You made things easy peasy and I so thank you for that.
OK, yall. Please forgive me for throwing so many words your way at once. Just wanted to see what you thought and entice you to keep our little magnificent seven group together working on our individual goals this year.
So watcha think?
