#Writemotivation May 2012 – Goal Check Sign Up!

#Writemotivation May 2012 – Goal Check Sign Up!

What is a Goal-Check month? 

Apart from the general cheering we do on a daily basis, a Goal-Check Month is where you set goals for yourself and hold yourself accountable to them. You let us know what those goals are, and report during the month how you think you’re going with them. This helps hold yourself accountable.

The aim here isn’t to compete with each other – it’s to compete against ourselves (and that pesky inner-critic and procrastination demon that try to defeat us when we least want them to).

To that end we try to add incentive every month. This month we’re adding a beta/CP match up :D

In these months, there are rules. Don’t worry – they’re completely doable.

The Rules:

  1. Make a list of realistic goals for the month – and achieve them.
  2. Make a Blog Post every week (preferably Monday, but if you don’t post on Mondays just add it to the next day you would normally post :D ). This is to help us keep tabs on our own progress, and for others to cheer us on if it’s a difficult week. Please link to the post in the #writemotivation hashtag
  3. Visit your #writemotivation team mates blogs, and participate in the #writemotivation hashtag to cheer people on
  4. Please fill in the form here:


Once this done you’re ‘registered’

It’d be nice if we all subscribed to each other’s blogs, but I don’t want to make that a rule, just a courtesy.

So – sign up and let’s keep #writemotivation going. Really looking forward to kicking some butt in May :D

Also – remember to take advantage of a beta/CP match up if you’ve been looking.

Here’s to a fantastic May 2012!

    I signed up! I’m nervous about the CP/Beta match up, but it’s time to take that next step.

    After taking a month off from the major goal setting, time to get back on the ride and go for it :-)

    I so totally hate goals, but I’m going to give this a try, cos it might be the kick-in-the-butt I need for my WIP.

    Thank you for organizing this.

    I just finished co-hosting the A to Z challenge, so I’m going to use this one to keep up my flagging energies!!
