How Do Loathe Thee… | Writing | Chris Friend | #digiwrimo: Digital Writing Month | Scoop.it

I’ve been fundamentally opposed to length requirements for as long as I’ve been a teacher. Faced with the prospects of writing 50,000 words next month, I’m revisiting that position and reconsidering when such requirements might be appropriate or even helpful.

Starting in just over three days, I’m participating in the Digital Writing Month, or #DigiWriMo on Twitter. The official goal of the project is for participants to write 50,000 words while learning about digital writing inside and out. I want to make my participation—and my personal goals—more public, so here’s a jump-start post to get me writing before I’m writing “on the clock”.

Digital Writing Uprising: Third-order Thinking in the Digital Humanities | Collaboration | HYBRID PEDAGOGY

Digital Writing Uprising: Third-order Thinking in the Digital Humanities | Collaboration | HYBRID PEDAGOGY | #digiwrimo: Digital Writing Month | Scoop.it

There could be many epigraphs hailing a discussion of digital writing, many pithy observations about its nature, becoming, qualities, mysteries, dilemmas. From Oscar Wilde: “A writer is someone who has taught his mind to misbehave.” Virginia Woolf: “We are nauseated by the sight of trivial personalities decomposing in the eternity of print.” Gertrude Stein: “They thought they were welcome and it did not make any difference.” All these from writers who were writing long before digital writing was good breakfast conversation. Yes, epigraphs are easy.

DigiWriMo is short for Digital Writing Month, and it's an online, month-long event happening in November 2012. It's modeled on NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month), but instead of writing a 50,000-word novel in one month, you write and self-publish 50,000 words of digital writing in one month. That could be blog posts, online articles, Tweets, Facebook status updates, Wikis, emails--whatever, so long as it's digital. They'll also have weekly writing challenges posted on the digiwrimo.com website; weekly Friday night Twitter socials; and a free, face-to-face, write-all-night event at Marylhurst University on November 17th (registration required).

Digital Writing Month | Inside Higher Ed

Digital Writing Month | Inside Higher Ed | #digiwrimo: Digital Writing Month | Scoop.it

On November 1, I will begin the month-long writing marathons known as Academic Writing Month and Digital Writing Month. Both of these challenges originate from National Novel Writing Month, which challenges participants to write a book during the month of November. Academic Writing Month, last year, challenged academic to write a draft of an academic book, while this year just ask participants to set some pretty large goals and try to meet them. Digital Writing Month is challenging us to use the digital tools afforded to us here on the web to write 50,000 “Digital” words, be it tweets, code, blogs, etc.

NaNo, as a computer assisted writing project, meets base line blog requirements. The Hybrid Pedagogy folk assured me that DigiWriMo would compliment not conflict with NaNo, so I registered. Come to find out, what they have in mind is different enough that conflict seems inevitable. So am I in or am I out?

Considering Digital Writing Month

Considering Digital Writing Month | #digiwrimo: Digital Writing Month | Scoop.it

I never did try National Novel Writing Month. Thought about it … but never did it. Now, an offshoot is Digital Writing Month in which folks are encouraged to compose 50,000 words of digital words over the month of November. (Words, I hope, meaning text, image, video and multimedia … and comics). I might try it … or maybe I already do it? In either case, I hope to add some webcomics about the month to the mix every now and then.

WriMos

I remember the first time I heard the word(?) NaNoWriMo. First I thought: What in the world does that word(?) mean? It sounds a bit like an alien planet. Once I found out what it was, I thought: You people are insane. Write a novel in a month? That’s crazy.
