Attention Grapenuts!

Tomorrow is Day #1 of Grapemo and I'd like to start off with one of last year's quotes from Jerry B. Jenkins:

"Writers write. Dreamers talk about it."

Grapemo Guidelines Review:

Accomplishment Updates Due each Sunday for Posting on Monday

*PM me (preferred if you are on LJ) or email sassenach43 at aol dot com
*Put "GRAPEMO UPDATE" in subject line
*Please do not send updates in comment sections of this blog
*If you missed sending in an update, you can send it by the following Sunday and I'll post both of them (or your total) the next day

TEASERS for Tuesday may be sent any time via PM or email.

*Please put "TEASER" in the subject.
*Include the title (made up or real--some people, like me, are sensitive about sharing their titles too soon).
*If you email these to me--very important--please include your LJ name

Special note: The thing about goals, occasionally they change. Some people get halfway into a marathon like this and realize there's no way they're going to make their goal. So, they drop out.

GAH! DO NOT DO THIS! If your goal needs to change, by all means change it. Each Monday I'll be happy to post any Revised PWGs for those of you who are moving along faster than expected, or for those of you who discover you might've been a wee bit too ambitious with your original goal. Uh, I'm not naming any names but you're looking right at one.

Remember, Grapenuts: "NEVER carve your goals in stone. Sinking stones take you down with them." (Uh, that'd be my quote of the day)

Nobody's sinking this month. Got it? Got it!

Any one who hasn't yet sent in their PWGs (Personal Writing Goals) please do so before tomorrow morning if possible (I'm easy the first week). And if you haven't signed up yet, let me know. Late-comers are welcome and I'll announce you when you show up. :)

Feel free to ask any questions in the comment section below, or email/PM me.

The countdown begins.........

I'm lost
I read elsewhere several comments that referred to this site, so I stopped by to see what the hoopla was about.
Is this a contest, a self-improvement, you write from a provided topic, you write your own stuff and get help/give others help?
Yes, I'm lost. But the references I read made it sound like a wonderful mental exercise for writers, especially new ones.
Would you refer me to the proper link or whatever to give me a better understanding of what's going on? I'd really appreciate it. I'm new to writing and to the internet, so I beg your patience. Thank you.
