Writing Integrity Day

Andy Wibbels is having a writing integrity day.

What is it?

It’s pretty simple really – it’s an attempt to get all that writing you’ve been putting off done by being a little accountable to others. He’s done it before – it goes something like this:

  1. We all get on the phone at 10am Eastern/New York time.
  2. Everyone takes 10 seconds (no more!) to say what they are going to work on for the next hour.
  3. Hang up.
  4. Write like hell.
  5. Get back on the phone the next hour and do it again.
  6. Rinse and repeat until 5pm.

It’s a fun idea to help make the day as productive as possible and which will get us bloggers who sit alone all day staring at the computer interacting with ‘real’ people for once.

Of course it doesn’t quite work for us non US types – I’ll be well and truly asleep for most of the time everyone else is writing with integrity.

Interestingly the date Andy’s chosen is 14 February – Valentines day – the perfect day to connect with other bloggers :-)

    That’s a fantastic idea … I’m going to suggest to my business partner , just as soon as he drags his sorry-self out of bed. We are in two opposite timezones, so this will be interesting to say the least :)

    That’s interesting, though I don’t think it would suit my style.

    This kind of thing could probably be done over skype or google talk.

    Could even be done in text format over IM.

  3. I sure that my wonderful fiance would just love that idea…

    Yes, Blaine, I sure won’t be making hourly calls to anyone else on 14th Feb!
