Sign-ups for [ profile] getyourwordsout 2010 are now open! For those unaware, [ profile] getyourwordsout is a year-long writing challenge. You sign up with a pledge to write a certain number of words and then write to that goal all year.

This year we have 6 pledge levels—single-project pledges at 100K and 150K, and multi-project pledges at 200K, 250K, 300K, and 350K. We've had 139 members travel all the way through 2009 with varying success and are hoping to make 2010 even better with more discussions, more prompts, more short-term challenges, and more writerly community building!

The only participation requirement of the community is that you check-in to report your word count each month, so if you're looking for a writer community or motivation to finally work on your novel or motivation just to keep yourself writing consistently all year, head over to [ profile] getyourwordsout and check out this post with all the information about joining for 2010.

After working through our inaugural year, I think 2010 is going to be even better.

Sign-ups are open until Dec 31, so make sure you
get over there to make a pledge before 2010 starts!

Also, a suggestion to the fandom people around here who are curious but not "sold"—if you're planning to write a Big Bang this year, you might consider signing up for the 100K single-project pledge. Most Big Bangs have a minimum of a 20K completed story so if you plan a longer novel, 60K or 70K, then you should be able to complete the 100K SPP easily after counting all the words of false stats, rewrites, and the final draft.

Just something for you all to consider! :D
