Weekly Recap – July 19th, 2013

I believe I finally exited reality this past week. For some reason, I committed to putting together some sort of write-a-thon during what will probably be an extremely busy rest-of-the-year at my day job. Taking on added responsibilities is so unlike me. 🙂

I’m glad I did though. The time will never magically appear, it has to be made. And if the writing took care of itself, it wouldn’t be worth doing. Well, I guess if it took care of itself, you wouldn’t be doing anything… sorry, still only a few sips into my coffee to make much sense right now.

Anyway, I’m glad there are some fellow word warriors ready to join me in facing the blank pages. It’s going to be a lot of fun!

Google actually makes setting up a collaborative area really simple. I just create a folder in my Google Drive and share the link with whoever wants access.

Let’s do this: If you’d like to participate, send me an email (pcmccollum (at) gmail (dot) com) and I will do a couple of things:

  1. Add you to the permissions list.
  2. Create a subfolder for you to create and save your work.

I’m happy to help out with any issues you run into. Once that is set up, we’ll choose a date and get down to business.

Thanks everyone and have a great weekend!

-Phillip

  1. Guess you gotta break the bounds of reality every now and then If you want to test your limits :). I’m glad you did too, and happy to report two successful mini sessions since your idea was inserted into my head.

    You’re right, time is an issue for everyone, and we’ve all got our own demanding lives. I occassionaly catch myself thinking I could write more “if it weren’t for you meddling kids,” but that’s a life I wouldn’t want to live – so I’ll grin and bear with the tiny time slots I can create.

    I appreciate your spearheading this event … Let me know if I can help!

  2. Thanks, Phillip. You have a great weekend as well.

  3. I’ll have to catch you guys next time. Great idea though!

  4. Sounds like a cool idea, but I’m afraid it wouldn’t work for me writingwise. Maybe song-writing, where a lot of spontaneous improvisation seems to get the engines going, but for fiction I’m way too plodding (not to say plotting).

    I’ll look forward to hearing how it goes, though! Good luck.
