GRAPEMO 2012 GUIDELINES

Hey peeps! Thanks to everyone who signed up so far, and remember--muuahahahaha!--it's not too laaate! If you still want to sign up, leave a comment to this entry. Anonymous comments are screened but accepted. Just be sure to tell me who you are.

GUIDELINES

PERSONAL WRITING GOALS:

Sometime between today and January 30th, please send me your PWG. For LJ users, these can be sent to me via PM (MUCH preferred so I can keep your handles straight) or e-mailed. Non-LJers can e-mail these to me at sassenach43 (at) aol (dot) com.

1. Be sure to write “PWG” in the subject heading so I won't miss it. No,it doesn't have to be red, haha.
2. Do not put your PWGs in a comment box. E-mail or private message only. LJ rarely notifies me of new comments in spite of my settings (ARE YA LISTENING, LJ?) plus PMs and e-mails are easier to keep track of.

WEEKLY PROGRESS UPDATES:

1. How'd you do over the past week? How many words/pages, etc. did you write/revise/edit/whatever? How much progress did you make toward your PWG? These will be posted on Mondays (usually by noon) which means I need to receive them by Sunday night. I'm kind of flexible and I will add late ones, but it's difficult because I work afternoons and I can't do it from there.

2. Again, PM or e-mail with something in the subject line to tell me what it is ("progress" "weekly update", etc.)

3. In the past I've edited these reports for clarity, length, to delete personal info, etc., before posting them. I'm up in the air about doing this again, but I'll discuss this in another post...

4. Though I encourage writers to stick with their original goal, as we all know: shit happens. If you do need to change your PWG to one that may be a bit more attainable, please DO and just let me know. Better to revise a goal--and never feel bad about it--than to give up completely!

TEASERS:

THIS is the fun part! Same as last year, each time you send me a “teaser” of your current project, you’ll automatically be entered into a drawing. One teaser, one chance…five teasers, five chances, etc. TEASERS will be posted on Tuesdays and Thursdays.

1. Up to 300 words, give or take.

2. TUESDAY TEASERS are due Monday night, THURSDAY TEASERS are due Wednesday night.

3. Once these are posted, I won't be adding to that entry. Teasers received too late to post will automatically be posted the next Teaser day.

4. E-mail or PM these with "TEASER" in the subject line. 

5. Remember to include a TITLE (or "untitled") and your name (especially your LJ username if e-mailed)

6. Teasers will not be edited for any reason other than format, so proof-read carefully..

7. Teasers are for our reading enjoyment ONLY (i.e. not to be critiqued) so don't be shy--share your work!

SPECIAL NOTE: if you send a TEASER, a PWG, an UPDATE, or whatever, and you don't see it posted, please let me know. I've been known to miss stuff in the past. Ask...well, just about anyone here.  :-)

Any questions??????
