A NEW 10 POINT PLAN!

Okay, so my last 10 Point Plan was kind of a dud.

All: Yeah. You Suck.

So... I have a NEW 10PP. This plan I hope to complete by this time next week. It shouldn't be too challenging, as the tasks are non-specific and based on word limits. I did really well in NaNoWriMo again this year, so it's obvious I respond well to setting myself word limits. Accordingly, I thought a 10PP of 10 word limits would be a barrel of fun!!! It has the added advantage of appealing to my teeny tiny little attention span.

Of course, I don't think I have 10 stories, so I might have to cheat, but I thought blocks of 500 words would be a fair and achievable goal. After all, I'm not working. If I just don't play The Sims all bloody day, I'll be fine.

To that effect:

THE 10 POINT PLAN (as given from Organised!Kayt to Lazy!Kayt)

1. Write 500 words of Terey Isabella.
No. You may not cheat and write them from later on in the story. From the beginning, if you please.

2. Write 500 words of Emily the Pirate.
Come on! It's gonna be pointless crap! How hard can that be?

3. Write 500 words of Lu'Mi's Story.
Don't you make that face at me, young lady!!! Write the bloody story!

4. Write 500 words of Patience.
And no rude gestures, either!!! Get to work, you lazy bitch!

5. Write 500 words of Kate's LorF.
Of course, if you'd like to work extra hard and post an entire episode, you may certainly do so.

6. Write 500 words of Miranda's LorF.
Yes, you almost forgot she existed, didn't you, you bad girl! She's pouting because you won't write about her.

7. Write 500 words of Dido Darke #3.
Yes. I am deadly serious. That means you have to edit what you already wrote, doesn't it? Yes, I am a bitch.

8. Write 500 MORE words of Kate's LorF.
What did I say about rude gestures? Come on, there's seven episodes to go! Half of them are part-written anyway. Lazy bloody sod.

9. Write 500 words of your choice.
It can be something entirely new, or it can be an extra 500 added to any of the items above.

10. Write 500 words of Andy LorF
Just 'cos of that freakin' brilliant idea you had last night. STOP SULKING!!!

There? Is that so hard?

Lazy!Kayt: *grumbles*

Organised!Kayt: *smacks Lazy!Kayt in the head with a 2x4*

All: And now she's having cyber-arguments with herself. Time to run away...

Ooh. This sounds like fun. And when you get to the end - you can start all over again!

OK, don't hate me for that. I'm excited for you. And you can totally write 500 words on anything. Even if it doesn't come out like you want, it's a step nearer to knowing what it is you do want.

Although... I couldn't help noticing you went from 8 to 4. Do you not actually want to finish all 10 points? :p

hee hee...

is this the way of subconsiously fooling your brain into thinking this a much shorter 5 point plan?

the ten point plan you have when you're not having a ten point plan???

I am muchly into list making at the moment. It really seems to make a difference in my productivity (even if I do seem to do the most menial tasks first and leave the actual constructiveness 'til later).
So, I wish thee good luck with yer plan, Kayt!

Go for it!

I think that there's something very smart about breaking it down like this. Those 500 word goals are very do-able -- and make the brain think it's just not that many words... (smile)

Go, you!!!
