March Madness, Redefined


Because I can't call it spring cleaning... that would imply I LIKED cleaning... Besides, my own version won't be cleaning at ALL...

What am I on about?


Who has a project that is sitting UNFINISHED?
Do you have a book that is partway done?
Got an editing job that badly needs doing?
A book you need to write NOW or it's going to make you CRAZY?

BECAUSE WE KNOW CRAZY!!!!!


A couple of my fellow Burrowers were talking, cuz you know like... itzwhatwedo, yeah? And TARA needs to write her second in a series... and I strong-armed Leanne into editing her Cozy Mystery, and I have a timely book idea that WILL NOT LET ME BE... and we decided March would be our month... with hard deadline for DONE DONE before we reach June and have BuNoWriMo, in which we will ALL be writing.


We threw out the idea and have a couple takers... people who need to finish books..., So I know Theresa and Adina are in... but I thought how could all of YOU KNOW if I don't announce it HERE?

So if YOU have a project that needs a giant PUSH to get done, and you do better under the adrenaline of doing it in a group, we will be keeping pace on Facebook in the BuNoWriMo group (just request to join, I'll add you) 

You're officially invited!!!

Shouldn't this be about basketball? ;)

T. Drecker said...

Push me too! I have a manuscript that really needs to get done. I've been dragging my feet on it, although I enjoy it. I'll join you guys on making it my March goal. Maybe that will work ;) Thanks!

Most naked pressure or what! Yay!!

Take care

L. Diane Wolfe said...

Plenty of projects but none of mine have anything to do with my writing.

Hart Johnson said...

Oh, basketball smasketball, Ted!

T-Excellent! Glad you'll join us!!!

Kitty, you, too? YAY!

Diane-what? Projects exist outside writing? I'm not sure I believe this...

Yes, this is a great idea and I'm so tempted~
First I have to make a intuitive phone call, than I will decide ;D
No, not the psychic network, lol

Mark Means said...

I should join as I have all the above that you mentioned, on the backburner.

I need to get my rear in gear, for sure and it sounds like you all have a good process going!

Theresa Milstein said...

I'm probably in. Right now, I'm working on revisions. I need a push to get back to my rough draft, but this other manuscript is getting so close to being done...

Michael Offutt, Speculative Fiction Author said...

I'll be working on a book in March. And probably April...heck all year I guess. I'm a slow ass writer.

Mel Chesley said...

I very well may join in this. I've never been part of a large group pushing me to get stuff done. Should be fun!

Helena said...

My neurosis and guilt seem to be ample motivation to FINISH (one of these days) the editing of my two manuscripts. But I'm almost done with the first one, at long last, so that makes me happy.

Pk Hrezo said...

Great idea! It's so much better when you have a group support!!

Hart Johnson said...

I'm so glad it looks like we have a lot of takers! Anyone who likes to write or edit in Sprints can also join Writing Sprints R Us--we have a team there that does FABULOUS together--several reliable people to cheer on the sprints.

Clarissa Draper said...

I'm in!

Ketutar said...

So you're up to no good again, instigating and enabling... and I'm all game :-D

Stacy Gail said...

I'm in!...ish. I'm trying to finish something up for a 3/15 deadline, before heading off for vacation on the 16th. So, I'm sorta in! :D

Tara Mills said...

I'm just over 10,000 words on my WIP and have about 5% of the motivation I need to get into gear. I like it too, know where I'm going, have great scenes in my head, but the discipline to put it down on screen is woefully absent. Help! I need a kick in the bum!
