#Writemotivation July 2012 – Goal-Check Sign Up!

#Writemotivation July 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 on 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 a little incentive every month. This time around – we’re going to add buttons! Shiny, colourful, cookie buttons – with a collect them all sort of vibe ;)

Though these goal-check months have 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.

Sign up and let’s keep #writemotivation going. Really looking forward to kicking some butt in July, not to mention cookies (flaming and otherwise), dinosaurs and zombie cheerleaders! :D

Here’s to a fantastic July 2012!

    Ready for some more #writemotivation. I have to admit, this has been a major way of keeping me honest with myself each month this year. Setting the goals and making them is wonderful.

    Woohoo! Can’t wait! I’m using this as a kick in the butt to get my blog site migration complete before the last sign-up day :) I’m really excited to have found you and the fantastic group of people that is writemotivation, and confident that July will be much more productive in the way of writing for me than May was ;)

    And love the buttons idea!

    That time already? Yikes! I will have to sign up next week so I don’t forget my goals like I did during May. But, you will be happy to know, that Valkyrie will be part of the goals. :)

    Hello – what a great idea. I’m a first timer here and found you through the hashtag so I hope it’s okay to join on in this month! I may randomly friend people on twitter who use the hashtag if that’s okay too.

    Yay!! Signed up. I tried to be more realistic this time around – but it should help that I’m not going away for 3 weeks & gettin’ hitched this time ;) Looking forward to it!!
