Jenna and I have decided to start an "accountability circle." What is an accountability cirlce, you ask? Well, the basic idea is to pull together a group of writers who will cheer each other on, try to keep each other on task, and well, hold each other accountable for slacking off. (Not that we would ever do that, mind. Okay, yes, yes, we would.)
So, here's what I'm thinking. Each week we set a few goals for ourselves--and we publish them for everyone to see. And well, if we meet those goals at the end of the week, GREAT. That's the goal. Now, if we don't...there will be a reckoning of some sort. (VBG)
Now, I'm not talking a hundred lashes at dawn. I'm talking little tasks or things we must do to vindicate our clear lack of effort. (I'm taking this straight from Brotherood 2.0, btw -- not that I think waxing any part of our bodies should be a viable option. Nor that Strawberry Hill nonsense. That's just Medieval.)
No...a couple of ideas, off the top of my head:
1. An ode to...well, ME, should I be the one choosing...
2. Or my personal favorite pick for Jenna -- make her write AND mail a fan letter to Johnny Depp.
Writing punishments are ideal, but they certainly do not encompass all the possibilities.
We could even do a snip circle to see and read what each of has accomplished in any given week.
So, what say you? Do we have any takers?
We'd definitely need a cool name, too....*thinking*
