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?

Edited to Add: This is members-only, so don't be a lurker - join the community and let's have some fun!

I was able to see the comments on this post, but not reply to them until I joined, so I guess something needs twiddling to make it member only?

Although possibly that will only apply to future posts.

You'll want to edit this entry to lock it; switching the default security only applies to subsequent posts, and doesn't change existing ones.

Then you may also want to make one post to leave public for those who haven't joined yet; once you've turned on locked-by-default in order to get a public entry you have to post the entry locked first, and then edit.
