Massive Action Day

One of my favorite writing advice guys is Jurgen Wolff. A couple of years ago I heard him speak on a writing podcast and thought, "Wow, this guy's really bright!" but he's also phenomenally accessible. He's been a screenwriter for years and years in both the US and Europe, as well as a writing coach, teacher (and hypnotist...how cool is that?) (Also, he wrote for the Love Boat. How cool is THAT?)

I re-read his book Your Writing Coach all the time.

On Saturday, May 28 he's holding a Massive Action Day, where people all over the world commit to working on their projects for eight hours, and checking in with each other once an hour for celebration and support. He'll give a short videocast every hour to keep us going.

My very full calendar was empty on that day...but as soon as I post this, it won't be anymore. Do you have a project that needs a kick in the pants? Sign up! It's free.


His blog is also awesome: http://www.timetowrite.blogs.com/

I just have a feeling if I sign-up my inner toddler would kick in and go "don't wanna now". Sigh. I'm not very good at whipping myself into shape. Good luck. Plus I'll use the excuse that it's my daughter's birthday so I might be busy. (Oh excuses, I gotta million of em.)

I'm thinking I might use the event to clean my house. Then I won't need to deal with the insidious guilt of being the world's worst housekeeper for a while.

When I first saw this at 4:30 AM when I woke up, I thought it was the stupidest idea ever. Of course, that could be because I was getting up to go to a job I hate with every fiber of my being. Around 8 I had decided it wasn't a bad idea but I would never do it 'cause there's nothing I would want to spend that much time on. Lunch went by uneventfully but by the time my last break came by, I knew I had to do something that day. Leaving work, it finally came to me! I'm going to do the one thing I've been meaning to do for over 3 years now! I'm making Halo armor!!! ^.^

Thank you so much for the link!!

Nothing like ambition that sneaks up on you! I haven't decided what I want to do yet, but I am excited. You'll have to let me know how it goes.

Ooh, I like this idea.

Gonna try it? I'm leaning toward doing some house things. I think that will free up my mental energy, not looking at un-done tasks all day.
