[ profile] getyourwordsout 2011 sign-ups are officially open!

Whether you've been eying the community all year, or have never heard of [ profile] getyourwordsout, allow me to briefly explain what it entails for 2011.

[ profile] getyourwordsout is a year long writing challenge designed to encourage writers to write more consistently, on a day by day basis rather than just when the muse feels like showing up. There are 5 pledge levels this year—150K, 200K, 250K, 300K, and 350K. Words can count for any writing projects you're writing in 2011, so long as those words were written within the calendar year. There are few exceptions to this and our word count guidelines are fairly straight-forward and available on our website

There are 3 participation requirements if you join (aside from trying to make your goal):

  • All members must participate in the monthly check-ins. Each month members provide their current year-to-date (YTD) totals to the moderators. You will only ever be required to provide numbers; sharing what is written is completely optional.

  • At the March check-in, members must have written some number of words for their goal.

  • At the June check-in, members must have written at least 10% of their goal.

If a member misses 3 check-ins, you'll get the ol' boot because after three, it usually means someone has quit writing, so there's no point in us tracking a lack of progress.

We do make it kind of easy to check-in, though—by doing it at the same time every month and having a trackable tag—and we'll send up to 4PM reminders over the course of the year! We really do want people to hang around!

If all of this is sounds good, head over to read the Pledges & Requirements in full, and then make a pledge (how to make a pledge is at the linked post). Make sure you pledge before you request to join the community; we won't accept members who haven't pledged first.
