I don’t know what I did this week. I know I’m still tired and most of my list is crossed
through but as to what, specifically, I accomplished this week aside from getting all six
Event announcements mostly complete, training our new Challenge Coordinator,
emails, and… probably a host of other things that weren’t even on the list? Not a clue.
We added a couple more new Events to the public Writer’s Games list. The private list
of ideas we’re working on looks like we didn’t make a dent in it. I guess that’s a good
thing: it means we’re still interested and emotionally invested. I’m just tired and the
“hard work” section of Games hasn’t even started yet for this portion. Speaking of
which, I was able to make a TON more space available on the score sheet so if you’re a
writer who wants a challenge and loves feedback on your writing, you can register for
Portion 2 on the Games page here: www.writersworkout.net/games. It’s free.
As for my continued struggle to do words... what even are they? What is language?
I have an idea for the current Mock Event. I never have time to think of things until after
the announcements go live. There’s something so much more inspiring about seeing a
post go live than the paragraph itself just two minutes prior. At that point, it’s just a
paragraph but seeing it published is a singular, inspiring moment. Everyone’s
encouraged to look at the list, generate ideas, and make notes in advance but the
announcement itself might slightly alter the wording and change whether the pre-idea
will work. I think this idea will.
So I have the idea, the motivation, and the time. What am I waiting for, I should be
writing right now. Write. Right now. Do it.
