Grapemo FYI

Here is a list of last year's Grapemo participants. For those of you who unfamiliar with Grapemo, think of it as a mini NaNo without all the pressure. All you need is a Personal Writing Goal--this can be to write so many words that month, or pages, or chapters, or even a single chapter. You can use the time to revise/edit/or proofread your work. You can work on your synopsis, outlines, query letters, whatever. If you're an illustrator, not a writer, you can use this time to work on whatever project needs your undivided attention.

The object of this is to spend ONE SOLID MONTH completely devoted to the most pressing matter at hand. And the nice thing is, nothing is carved in stone--goals can be reasssed and changed as needed. We'll be posting weekly updates (guidelines will be announced) and--for those brave enough to share your work--weekly (or possibly twice-weekly) teasers (not manadatory). It's fun and it's inspirational, and anyone can join in. Whoever is interested, please reply this post, or PM or e-mail me, and I'll add you to the list.

I desperately need this, by the way. :) And I bet I'm not alone.

Please add me to the list! I will take the next couple of weeks to figure out what my PWG is, but I definitely need this and thank you for doing it!

Okay, I signed up for JoNo and did nothing, but I must refocus and it's okay to try again, right? Sign me up.

Plus, concord grapes are one of my favorite things in the entire world.

Oh, please sign me up again! I was just reading my goal for last year--finish STEP STONE AWAY--which is now called NO GODDESSES ALLOWED. I did finish my story and probably will have to do yet another revision--does this ever end?

Seriously, I so need this too. My goal has been to write 500 words a day on the sequel to CROSSED OUT but I'm moving at a snail's pace. This will be great to give me that kick in the tush I need!

I could definitely use Grapemo to work on my revisions. Count me in!

I definitely want to play but not sure yet what my PWG will be. Need to see how I do for the rest of this month to help me find a reasonable goal for Feb.
