A lot of people didn’t finish the last NPI, but I’d like as many people to finish this one as possible.
So I’m affording you the opportunity to negotiate the terms with me before I post the ruleset for the March event.
Last time, it was 250 words per day, with three ‘Days of Reprieve’, which essentially meant you could write 0-249 words for three days out of the month and still pass NPI. The fourth time was considered a ‘Knock-Out’.
And I held the participants to that—After all if there’s no accountability, what’s the point of running an event that’s supposed to teach consistency?
What’s up for negotiation?:
1: 250+ words per day.
This can be negotiated. Would 200 be easier to maintain? Would you rather raise the bar and bring it to 350? Be honest.
2: 3 ‘Days of Reprieve’.
I like Days of Reprieve. At first there were none. Then there was one. Now there’s three (as of December’s NPI). Three seems like a pretty good number, but this can also be negotiated.
Anything else you can think of.
Here’s some food for thought: We all know self-imposed deadlines can be great motivators. Maybe the only thing that’s better is a deadline imposed by someone else?
If you have any suggestions or negotiations, please share.
By the way, this post is exactly 214 words.
