The Sunday Circle is the weekly check-in where I ask the creative-types who follow this blog to weigh in about their goals, inspirations, and challenges for the coming week. The logic behind it can be found here. Want to be involved? It’s easy – just answer three questions in the comments or on your own blog (with a link in the comments here, so that everyone can find them).
After that, throw some thoughts around about other people’s projects, ask questions if you’re so inclined. Be supportive above all.
Then show up again next Sunday when the circle updates next, letting us know how you did on your weekly project and what you’ve got coming down the pipe in the coming week (if you’d like to part of the circle, without subscribing to the rest of the blog, you can sign-up for reminders via email here).
What am I working on this week?
Writing takes a back seat over the next seven days, as I’ll be turning my attention to the GenreCon Program. The rough framework has already been worked out, but I need to spend the quality time refining topics, developing the core question driving each panel, and putting together copy that will entice people to actually go along.
What’s inspiring me this week?
I’m a big fan of getting familiar with people who do a form well before you attempt to write in a particular style, and writing program copy is one of those things that very few people do well. I’ve been reviewing old programs from cons and other writing events, making notes about what works for me (and what doesn’t) and generally looking at the formulas that can be adapted.
What action do I need to take?
I didn’t do a full weekly checkpoint last week and paid for it again and again throughout the last seven days, between forgetting small-but-important tasks, failing to to remember a handful of appointments, and generally getting mired down on a handful of projects. I absolutely need to set aside some time to do a more thorough breakdown this week so there’s a little more clarity.
