Confident Writing's Year-End Group Writing Project
Joanna Young, at Confident Writing, is holding a year-end group writing project, in which bloggers select the post they believe to be Simply The Best post they've written during 2008 and describe why "in 30 words or less." Read all about this intriguing project in the following post: Simply The Best: Group Writing Project.
My Writer's Notes Entry
I've chosen the following article* as the Writer's Notes 2008 post that's Simply The Best:
Motivation to Write: Is There a Magic Formula?
In accordance with the rules Joanna has set for this writing project, I've described my reasons for choosing the above post--in exactly 30 words (not counting Joanna's "preamble"). Here they are:
This post is simply the best because...
• It explores an issue that's critical to every writer's success;
• It examines various methods for tapping several common motivational sources;
• It explains how to generate motivation when it eludes us.
Hope you'll enjoy revisiting this Writer's Notes "best" post of 2008 (first published as a guest post at Writing the Cyber Highway). I think that, in addition to a hefty dose of encouragement, you'll find an arsenal of useful techniques for achieving the motivation that's indispensable to your success in your chosen vocation.
Joanna's Roundup Post Will Link to All Entries
Be sure not to miss Joanna's Simply The Best roundup post (which will be published at Confident Writing on December 30th). It will feature links to some of the best blog content of 2008 (along with each blogger's 30-word or shorter description of why it's his/her best post of the year).
If you've had a busy year (as I have) and too often missed reading your favorite blogs, don't miss this "best of the blogosphere" collection! (You can even get a jump on reading these great entries by visiting Joanna's announcement post at the above writing project link and mining her Comments box for the links to all the entries.)
* I've entered at the 11th hour (actually, later). Yet, I simply couldn't pass up the opportunity to participate in such an inspiring project.
Did you enjoy this post? What would you consider your very best post of 2008? Would you have difficulty choosing? If so, stay tuned for another soon-to-be-held year-end group writing project which will include up to 12 of each blog's best posts of 2008: one for each month that the blogger has been blogging this year. Perhaps you'll even decide to participate!
