Daily Ideas?

One of the hardest things to do about writing is coming up with an idea of what to write. You want to start writing, but staring back at you is a blank piece of paper (or an empty text area in a web page). That void represents so many directions to take, it’s hard to choose.

To help Write for Ten writers, I will try to post ideas on Twitter. To get updates, follow @writeforten.

I’m also thinking about an idea generator in the “New Post” page. I don’t know how I will do this yet, so if you have ideas. Send me an email at [email protected] or leave a message in the forum.

Haha, the acronym for Write for Ten (WFT) does look like WTF as Arania pointed out.

I propose a different acronym: WF10 or W10. I prefer WF10. There you go, that doesn’t look like WTF at all. There wouldn’t be anymore confusion.

I suggest when writing about this project that you use the WF10 acronym. If you use Twitter, tweet about the project and use the hashtag #wf10 or #writeforten. If you want to blog about the project, use one of our badges .

We were recently featured on FeedMyApp . Welcome to all of those who are coming from FeedMyApp.

It’s January 10, 2010. I’m releasing Write for Ten to the world. The site is up now at http://writeforten.com/

Hello world! Today is an appropriate day for showing this project to the world. If it’s not obvious to you yet. It’s the 10th day of 2010 and this project encourages writing for ten minutes about anything.

Give it a try! Sign up for an account. Then spend ten minutes writing about anything. How about writing your impression of the site as a start?

Of course, you don’t have to use this site to start writing. Just grab a notebook, open a text editor, or go to your favorite blog site and write something. Develop a habit of writing anyway you can, it will be good for your mind. I bet some of you have New Year’s resolutions related to writing.

My time is almost up. If you like this project, help us spread the word. Write a blog post about us (within 10 minutes of course) and point back to the site using one of our badges . You can also follow @writeforten on Twitter.

Ok, my time is up. Go write something!
