Perpetually Prototyping – A Writing Experiment

I’ve recently learned of the writing workshop Ship 30 for 30. The structure is writing <250 word "Atomic Essays" every day for 30 days.

Dear Friendlies, Greetings!

Jeff and I share a little phrase, “Perpetually Prototyping”. It’s very anicca; trying to remember that everything is in flux, everything is a prototype. This frees us to try new experiments.

I’ve recently learned of the writing workshop Ship 30 for 30. The structure is writing <250 word “Atomic Essays” every day for 30 days.

I don’t expect to actually publish every day. But I do hope you’ll be seeing more frequent, shorter posts. Don’t worry, it’s just an experiment. The idea is to get better at writing by actually writing.

Have any of you done a workshop or challenge like this?

With friendliness!

Hi Shannon – sounds like a good plan! I’ve never participated in anything quite like that (though I have taken part in other workshops); my own personal challenge at the miment is to finish the novel I started about three years ago… I am considering finding some kind of mentor once I’ve got to the end of a decent first draft.
I haven’t worked with her but I am signed up to the newsletter of the person who runs this “challenge”- Nathalie Sejean writes in French and in English, so interests me particularly.

Luke! Hello.

A novel?!? Is it about Punk? or Dharma? Or France?

Oh, that’s the non-fiction part of your life. :)))

If it’s interesting to share resources, I found _Story Genius_ by Lisa Cron uh-maze-ing.

Thanks for the rec. I will check out Sejean.

Bisous!
