Get Your Words Out in 2021!

I just signed up for my 5th year of [community profile] getyourwordsout, which, if you've never heard of it, is basically all about setting a yearly writing goal--either a word count or number of writing days--with monthly check-ins to see how you're doing. There's a really active community, spreadsheets, sprint rooms, and generally just a lot of awesome encouragement to help you reach your writing goals.

You can find out more about the community and how it all works here, but essentially there are 7 "levels" of participation for the word count goals raging from 75k words in a year to 500k, and three levels of participation for the habit pledge, 120/240/350 writing days. The two "tracks" are mutually exclusively, and the idea is to choose whichever goal will best motivate you to write! Personally, I "formally" sign up for a word count goal, but "informally" track my number of writing days.

There are a ton of really interesting and thought-provoking posts on writing that go up throughout the year, and there's no shortage of support if you need it.

Anyway, if you're the kind of person who likes structure and goals (like me!) then I'd totally recommend. Sign-ups are open until January 18th! :D
