Writenite II... sort of...

I spent this evening's Writenite doing Mag Editing homework.  It's not a whole lot of fun, but the reading has actually motivated me even more to keep practicing my writing.  That's what Writenite is all about, really.  I need to find a way to keep the creative juices flowing, and something that gently forces me to write something - anything - at least once a week.  I've done a couple of personal journal entries in the last couple of week as well (which are more about daily life than about the workings of my inner self represented here at LJ). 

All in all, things are going well, and I hope to be able to continue - and not get overwhelmed by all the things on my "to do" list.  Goal #1: keep up with Writenite despite the stumbling blocks being thrown up to discourage me, and Goal #2: finish the Mag Editing grad project early - way early. 

I should have more than two goals, you say?  Let's not get ahead of ourselves.  My puny brain accomplishes things one at a time.  I leave the multi-tasking to those without attention span difficulties.  

OOoooo... shiny....

writenite is such a great idea! one of my goals is to write more, and aside from blogging, not a poem or story has come from this brain in many many months. Ryan and I supposedly run this local poetry meetup, but I doubt we've had a meeting since July, although we will this month! I need some inspiration! May I join your club? :)

Of COURSE you can join Writenite! It's every Monday night, and the only rule is that you have to write SOMETHING. If you're really swamped, you can write earlier and just post on Monday, but really that's kind of cheating. The idea is to get motivated to write, and hopefully the Monday motivation will continue on throughout the week. I think posting on LJ is a great way for us to keep each other accountable. My supposed Writenite partner has been buried with work and family stuff lately, so I welcome the extra help in staying focused on writing. I need to get some fiction down on paper!

Hip Hip Hooray! I really need to focus on poetry since Ryan and I run the local poetry meetup. We haven't had a meeting in a few months, and the last few we had I had to grab old material because I didn't haven't anything new! I so need motivation. I'll be sure to keep those wheels turning so I can write something great next Monday!
