Win Coffee! Join the Golden Coffee Cup on Nov 1

I hope that you are getting your goal ready! Yay for the folks already in! 31 days of CHEERING YOU ON blogging is about to begin on NOV 1. Here are the quintessential motivational coffee cups:

Make a goal and finish it. Share in a creative journey. Join the 2010 Golden Coffee Cup. Want to make a good goal for the Golden Coffee Cup? Check here.


In honor of National Novel Writing Month (NANOWRIMO), I have a little event on my blog for anyone one who needs an extra boost of motivation to get their current project rolling.

The Golden Coffee Cup is for children's content creators or anyone who might like to hang with us (Come on over, Nanos!). Artists, writers, screenwriters, if you fit the bill, this is for you.

The Golden Coffee Cup is a different kind of motivational thingy.

THE RULES: 1. Post your November creative goals on blog by Nov 1. I'll make sure all goals are moved to the November 1st post so we're all on the same page. Nov 1 at midnight is the deadline, folks.

2. Come back daily for general cheering, inspiring, and wild ruckus. We'll work hard and do some holy snappin'. For extra motivation, virtual celebrity guests will be on hand to offer high fives for your achievements!

3. If you reach your goal from Nov 23 to Nov 30, and post your story on my blog, and you will receive your Golden Coffee Cup jpg. There is no verification process, I believe you. Send in your email address to me(, and I'll email your Golden Coffee Cup. Display it proudly as wallpaper, post it on your blog, print it out and tack it on your bulletin board for year-long motivation.

4. EXTRA EXTRA Incentive! Write a great post and you might win real coffee! I will select the four best goal stories, and the winner will receive a STARBUCKS card for a cup of coffee. I do the judging and it is wholly subjective. You do not have to be my friend to win. Really, honestly, cross my heart hope to die stick a needle in my eye. (Ahem, if you don't like coffee you can totally buy tea - the CHAI at Starbucks is mighty tasty.)

Get ready, folks! Major high fives, holy snappin' and so many inspiring folks are ahead. You can do anything you put your mind to. Really.

People often say that motivation doesn't last. Well, neither does bathing - that's why we recommend it daily. Zig Ziglar

I'll be away for the first 2 weeks of Nov. Still -- count me in. I wouldn't want to miss your Golden Coffee Cup this year, Molly!

Stasia said...

Have a definitely (very tough) writing goal for November and of course, I'm in on trying to win the coveted Golden Coffee Cup!

Kjersten said...

I'm in!

I'm working on improving my speed with illustrations.

I'm going to see what happens if I make 10 collage illustrations in one month.

Should be fun. said...

I'm in! Thanks for the motivation and all the perks.

I'm excited to be a part of this again. I'm still not quite sure what my goals will be because I'm finishing up something huge right now. I'll figure it out by Monday. :)

One nursery rhyme a day for the month. I thought I had posted this already . . . apparently not. Anyway, that is my goal.
