Let's Get Motivated!

December is almost upon us and it's a busy month. Holidays, family, crazy amounts of shopping and cookie baking. How can we find time for writing?

It's my hope that this community will serve as a place for motivation and support. I'll be the first to admit that, while I love creating with words, I don't always get myself moving to get any done. Not good, especially with WIPs hanging out begging for completion.

What I'd like to do is have a weekly check-in here on Wednesdays. That way we can see how each week is progressing without having to worry about doing it on the weekends when we're all extra busy. This check-in can consist of anything - inspiration, a bit of writing to share that you need opinions on, or just a weekly gripe about why it's impossible to get any writing done.

So what do you say? Shall we band together and see what we can get done with a little encouragement and pom-pom waving? And possibly alcoholic beverages?

Ack! Yes . . . thank you so much for making this happen. I can't believe WriSo is over for good, I was comforting myself for my very MiFu final week with hopes of not travelling in November last year, and then I saw that last post and almost cried! It was only my first year! I loved it so much! I don't want to lose my new writing buddies!

I like the idea you mentioned, further up, of picking up the pace in November. Weekly check-ins are much more sustainable, but it's nice to have something to look forward to, and put big push on for, in November.
