It is November 1st and is the first day of Academic Writing Month, otherwise know as AcWriMo. This is an opportunity to write with a very lager support group (last year over 350 people participated) and get that chapter, article, or series of blog posts you have been putting off finally written. There are six rules to participating in AcWriMo:
1. Set yourself a goal that pushes your limits that can easily be tracked (words/day, hours spent writing, number of draft articles written). It is totally up to you.
3. Draft a strategy to accomplish the goal(s).
4. Discuss what and how you are doing. Post to Twitter or Facebook and let the community of writers know what you are up to.
5. Work super-hard.
6. At the end of the month declare you final results.
Here are my goals for AcWriMo.
1. Convert one of the papers I wrote for a class during my Ph.D. into an article. The paper is currently 1500 words. This means I need to write approximately 3500 to 6500 words.
2. Write at least one blog post per week that is about my creative practice (either artistic or philosophic).
Come join the fun and write, write, write.
