November (NaNo) #Writemotivation Goal Check Sign Up

Signing up for a #Writemotivation Goal Check list means you’re putting your monthly goals out there for the world to see. The idea is to hold yourself accountable to the goals you put out there. It’s not a win or lose situation, just a matter of motivating yourself (and others), to complete the things on your list.

The aim is not to compete with each other – but to compete against yourself (and that pesky inner-critic and procrastination demon that tries to defeat us when we least want them to).

An amazing sense of accomplishment will be your reward! Of course, we’re also one big cheer squad. And don’t forget Mr Dino, his cookies, the zombies and the cheerleaders – sometimes combinations of all of those. It’s about helping each other through the solitary life of writing, because we all stumble every now and again.

Though these goal-checks technically 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 (The day is optional – I post on Monday’s because I like starting the week that way. Please just post on one day per week with your progress). This helps us keep tabs on our own progress, and allows others to cheer us on if it’s a difficult week. Please link to the post in the #writemotivation hashtag/and or the G+ group
  3. Visit your #writemotivation team mates blogs, and participate in the #writemotivation hashtag and G+ group to cheer people on
  4. Please fill in the form here:


Once this done you’re ‘registered’

Remember – your #writemotivation cheering mates would probably appreciate it if you followed their blog, but if Twitter is more your thing just don’t forget to check the # and the G+ group to see everyone’s posts!

Sign up and let’s keep #writemotivation going. November will try to bring us down because HELLO NANOWRIMO, but it will not prevail! Not only will people cheer each other on, but we do have zombie, dino, cheerleading cookies… or something, right?

Here’s to a fantastic November 2013! Let’s all kick NaNo butt!
