Project 10K (P10K) April 2020



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

We live in difficult times and I hope whoever reads this and their loved ones are OK.

I’ll go on hiatus with this blog for a while and will only post scheduled posts for the P10K. I have a lot of work and feel a general unease and worry which seriously prevents me from thinking about writing. I’m sure many of you share that feeling. But if you have time and can pursue your writing projects, you need motivation. That’s what this challenge is for. 🙂

How was your April? Did you find the time to write, to meet your goals? 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 April:

1 – 3 See above

4. Stay healthy!

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 May.

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

  1. I know what you mean about how the general anxiety of this pandemic makes it hard to concentrate on creative pursuits. I can see that for some people staying at home has been very productive, and good for them! But I have been so swamped and stressed out with work that I would probably be home alone 24/7 even without the stay-home orders. At least I can work at home in sweats, that’s the only consolation. I still have the oil bubble in my eye from the surgery, so I still can’t read print books — and the SFF magazines are piling up! Maybe that’s why I haven’t managed to re-submit any of my stories to magazines. Or maybe that’s because I wake up at 4:30 every day, work my brain off all day long, and collapse in a heap after dinner.

    1. I can’t remember what my goals were but I’m going to say no. I did manage to write a flash fiction piece for the What Pegman Saw challenge every weekend, that’s something.

    2. Yes! It was fun to take a break from work, and I always love to visit Eneana, and to have the excuse to read other participants’ stories and “talk” to them.

    3. Not really, since I knew I couldn’t really accomplish much.

    4. I’ll echo you — stay healthy and safe! And I send sympathetic vibes out to everyone who’s feeling stressed out: virtual hugs, all around!

    1. Hugs and I hope your eye ist better… I’m just reading your post on audiobooks over on your site, and will reply to that there. 🙂
      Great that you managed to write a bit at least. I get lazier and lazier, but also have more and more work and am tired… I want to retire. I’ve been sewing face masks instead of writing, how about that? All my SF writing plans have been overtaken by reality and it still gets worse. Can’t even enjoy watching a space mission launch and docking as I used to any more… But enough of the whining. I’m looking forward to read how you fared in May.

      1. Hang in there. Reality is a real pain these days, it’s enough to get anyone down. Cant write much, I’m recovering from another eye surgery and pecking one handed is hard. more later.
