hey writers

I've been writing more often this year and I owe a lot of it to this community write15 , moderated by the lovely cathalin . There aren't many participants, but everyone is welcome. I thought I'd promote it for anyone else who might need a little helpful motivation.

From the user info page:
This community is designed to encourage people to write (or engage in writing-related activities) 15 minutes per day. Obviously, people can do MORE than that, but the idea is that, since anyone can do something for 15 minutes per day, there are no excuses!

The basic idea here is, set a timer for 15 minutes, and write (or edit, etc.) without distraction for 15 minutes. Each day.

The community is for daily (and weekly) check-ins, as well as supportive and encouraging discussion of people's writing goals, and providing motivation to, well, just do it!

Additionally, we will discuss writing topics of interest to members, and may have occasional special challenges.

Anyone is welcome to join. Membership is unmoderated. Posting is allowed by any and all members at this point. Only members can make posts. Commenting is on for anyone, member or nonmember, with or without an lj. Anon commenting is enabled, but anon comments are screened, so may take a while to show up. IP logging is off. All of these things are subject to change, but will be announced if they are.

Let's have fun and support each other in our writing goals, and most importantly... work on writing 15 minutes every. single. day. \o/

I miss days here and there, but it does help keep me motivated to write. Check it out and join in, if you're so inclined!

I was inspired by her shout out to the lurkers. I know there are writers I'm friends with and might want to join us!

Sounds nice. Thanks for sharing this. I would like to get back into writing if I can ever finish my school work. *facepalm*

Eh, I'm okay. Still unemployed, which sucks. My daughter seriously wants me to move down to the cities, but I'm still looking for a job up here.

How've you been? I'm glad you signed up! It really has helped me write more.

Re: Thanks for this!
The original idea came from cathalin, but I love it. It really has helped me do a lot more writing. I've been mostly working on a couple of original stories, but (and this is a secret for you) I've dusted off Minnesota Dreams and started rereading it so I can finish it. I don't want to announce anything in case I get derailed again, but I forgot how much I love those characters. I really, really do want to finish it soon.
