Over at the Bransforums we are running a National Novel Writing MAY Challenge, which has nothing to do with NaNoWriMo, though it was inspired by it. This month’s challenge is to set 3 goals for yourself and work on them with the same intensity you might work at your job. Most everyone has word count goals, but there are also a lot of research and editing goals too.
You don’t have to be a member of the Bransforums to participate, but if you’re not a member, well, why not? We’re great fun!
This doesn’t just extend to writers, either. I’m looking at you, blog friends. What 3 things do you want to accomplish for the month of May? Pick three things, any three things. Share them in the comments so that I can become your new, most annoying personal assistant who follows you around going, “SHOULDN’T YOU BE WORKING, MISSY? TURN OFF TUMBLR THIS INSTANT.”
In my fantasies, I’m wearing pointy glasses and holding a ruler. Clearly I missed my calling as a scary librarian.
My writing/non-writing related goals for May:
- Finish 70,000 words. (I’ve already written a little more than 16,000)
- Run Every Week.
- READ SOMETHING FOR CRYING OUT LOUD. I haven’t read anything in a while. *shame*
