Project 10K (P10K) February 2019


You’ll find the rules and some of the earlier badges on the Project 10K Page.

It’s March and spring in the Northern hemisphere is around the corner.  How did you do? Did you have a chance to write? Did important things prevent you from writing? Tell us all about it.

Here are our standard questions:

Do you need a little incentive for writing more regularly? Then this project is for you.

1. Did you meet your writing/editing goals?
2. Did you have fun writing?
3. Did the P10K help with motivation?
4. Anything else you want to tell us, questions you want to ask?

Here are my answers for February. There wasn’t much creative writing in February for me. But: I managed to participate in all the Friday Fictioneers challenges and found a new challenge made by writer friend Crispina Kemp: Crimson’s Creative Challenge. I happyly plug both of them since they both are a lot of fun. Work-wise, yes, did it, got there.

  1. Yes.
  2. It was a work project, one I’m not fond of, so, no.
  3. Yes it did. It kept me going.
  4. Another month of slaving away…

My goals for March are:

I’ll target P10K writing for the job agan. By the end of the month we’ll have an audit and by then hopefully most of the stuff will be done.

How about you?  How did your writing go? Please leave a comment, or a link to your blog if you write about it there. I’d really like to hear about your month.

And, as always, good luck, and many good ideas  for March.

If you see this for the first time and this challenge interests you: Everyone is welcome, hop right in.

    1. Thank you. It’s fine, I did hit my goals because I knew that I would be far too tired in the evenings to do creative writing and didn’t even set it as a goal. In times of a huge workload with lots of documents to write I find that it helps me at work, too, to set a goal. This is what I did last month and doing for March as well. After that, back to the fun stuff. 🙂

  1. Good for you, keeping up with the flash fiction challenges even when you’re so busy at work. You’re doing better than I am! Work continues to be very stressful and busy, and I continue to find it hard to switch gears to be creative in my off hours when my brain is so wiped out from writing and thinking for work projects.

    1. Nope. I only wrote 3 flash fiction stories, and those were all in the first week of the month. I did write two other blog posts that I’d been meaning to write for over a month, and did some revisions on two short stories, which put me just shy of the halfway mark for my 10K goal.

    2. Yes, when I had the chance.

    3. Not really this month, no — no time to think about it!

    4. Looking at my deadlines, March and April will be just as bad as the last two months, so I can’t see doing 10K. Especially since I mostly write fiction on the weekends, and I’ve been writing research reports on the weekends instead. Next weekend I’m taking off — but I’ll be away at a SFF writers/readers conference the whole time, so I won’t get any writing in then, either. I hope it will inspire me though!

    1. I understand completely. Have you considered taking the research reports to the 10pk? I find it helps me keep focussed when I have to write a lot of work-related stuff. It’s somewhat more fun that way, too.

      1. If I included what I write at work, then I’d probably get 10K every month, although it would be tricky to count, since so much of what I work on is coauthored. So that’s not really a challenge that would help to inspire me. I *have* to write for work, and the word count doesn’t matter, only the content. What I love about P10K is that it gives me permission or an excuse to spend more time with my own creative writing.

        1. Ah, I understand, that wouldn’t work. It words for me since I usually only write notes at work but sometimes, like now, I need to write or rewrite documentations and that is a project which takes some time, but won’t last forever. So it’s two or three months lots of writing for me at work, and the P10K makes it a bit more fun since it is a challenge.
