Writing – A Year Long Project
Writing is something I have always wanted to do and I feel 2012 needs to be when I start to do some serious writing!! WISH ME LUCK!!
I got thinking about this when I took part in the November project of writing a novel in a month and didn’t get too far due to other circumstances that were out of my control.
So I decided that i would have to set myself another target; to try and get a novel written in a year.
This I know should be easy as some people did this in a month (http://www.nanowrimo.org/en/dashboard). Although as a teacher, taekwondoist and writer I know I need to set an achievable target and I believe this is so.
So I hear you ask: How will you go about doing this?
I will be doing it in a number of ways:
- I will write some of it myself and will be in charge of the overall editing of the text etc.
- I will ask other to write parts of it for me and then I will piece it all together, hopefully with the combined effort it will become a possibility (also if I know other are doing different pieces of writing for me it will spur me on to want to write more!!- Peer Pressure – a good motivator!!)
- I will get the children a school to write different sections of it (character profile, place profiles and general synopsis)
The target for this is to get people writing!!
I will start by putting it all on my blog (https://mrovertonprimary.wordpress.com/ ) and if the idea takes off I will make a separate blog that can accommodate this.
Let’s hope it works
