The Mightybell Experience!

Hi all!  

My friend, the visionary Gina Bianchini, is launching a brand-new internet startup tomorrow, September 8th, called Mightybell.  On Mightybell, you can create experiences for others to join you in -- and I have created one I am REALLY excited about, which will launch TOMORROW AT 12PM EST.  I hope you will join me there, and we can all carry out these five concrete, tried-and-true steps to kickstarting your writing TOGETHER.

Once you have completed the five steps, come back here for continuing support and encouragement throughout the fall.  I for one am so happy to have this community here when I need it, as I have way too much sun and sand in my brain from the lazy days of summer.

It's time to kick some butt.  Or at least to keep our butts in the chair.

I'd be interested, too, in a December SheWriMo group.

I hear that Jan!  I was wondering though: what would we use for incentive?  I tend to need some end goal/deadline...and I really want to finish all those pieces I started and... So any ideas?

I'd love to join a group for December...desperately need a goal/deadline/hammer over my head!!!!

I'm not sure if anyone still checks in here or not ~ I was just wondering if anyone wanted to set something up for December?  I know that NaNo helps me sit down and actually write so I would like to keep to some kind of "deadline"/goal ~ it is time for me to finally finish these projects  and do something with them! :)

I don't know if anything was decided here or not, I know a few posts have been made expressing interest but nothing else has come of it - maybe we need to just branch off into a new group - or people are focused on NaNo right now and that is their daily "goal" so nothing planned till December?  I don't know.

Anyway, that's a fantastic first day tally, Courtney!  Congrats! :)

I missed it and would be interested.
Comment by Autumn on October 31, 2011 at 10:30am
I think a few of us missed the MightyBell but thought we were starting a new challenge?  If not, we should - interest seems to be there.
Comment by Autumn on October 18, 2011 at 4:46pm
I would totally be on board!  In fact it is one of the reasons why I started looking for a site/group. :D
Comment by Shannon Alexander on October 18, 2011 at 2:38pm
I think yes!  I've actually spent the last two days very dutifully with my butt in chair and fingers on keys.  5,000 words to show for it.  It's amazing how much writing you can do when you actually make time to write.
