jordannamorgan: The Killer Rabbit, "Monty Python and the Holy Grail". (Plot Bunny)
[personal profile] jordannamorgan in [community profile] create_my_comm
On Livejournal a couple of years ago, I found a motivational writing community that was simple, but astoundingly effective. It was called [livejournal.com profile] project_finish. (Its old posts are still there, if you want to look.)

The basic idea was this:
(1) Each week, the mod would put up a post that included a simple little graphic token.
(2) Members would reply to the post, stating their word count/writing goal for the week.
(3) At the end of the week, if you hit your writing goal, you could feel justified in claiming the week's token as a reward. (Of course, there were also posts during the week for members to talk about their progress, encourage each other, etc.)

It was quite low-pressure, but the personal accomplishment of "earning" those little tokens was a ridiculously helpful motivation to hit my declared word count each week. I loved it while it lasted... But unfortunately, about two months after I discovered [livejournal.com profile] project_finish, it suddenly and permanently went silent with no explanation. :Þ

Which is what brings me here (well, thanks to [personal profile] kalloway at [community profile] onedeadplotbunny). There are reasons why I can't commit to running a community these days--but I would absolutely love to see someone else create one based on [livejournal.com profile] project_finish's model. I know it would help me now, the same way the original comm helped me then; and I think it would be great for others too.

(And while I'm here, might I also add that I'd be delighted if someone would create a multi-fandom genfic bingo? It's nearly impossible to find a bingo challenge that doesn't involve kinks or squicks of one kind or another.)
