Results from the Sailing Learning Experiences Group Writing Project

Tillerman’s Sailing Learning Experiences Group Writing Project was his first group writing project in a year, surprising him with 18 entries. So much so, that in Robert Hruzek fashion he’s considering making it a monthly event.

Here’s a quote from Tillerman that I liked:

What I found most gratifying about this exercise was how many writers from whom I hadn’t heard before came forward with stories about their learning experiences. Some of you were writers of sailing blogs of which I was previously unaware. Some of you don’t have your own blogs but felt inspired to send in a story anyway. Thank you to you all.

This is a typical reaction from bloggers whose gwps have been promoted here for the first time, and that’s what *I* find gratifying.

Keep up the good work with more pleasant surprises for unsuspecting bloggers!

Sailing Learning Experiences Group Writing Project

Group writing project ahoy! Sailor Tillerman is announcing his first group writing project in a year and it ain’t for landlubbers like myself.

Sailing Learning Experiences

In Tillerman’s words: “Some of us use that phrase to describe a major screw-up as in, “Oh no! Not another learning experience.” But you can interpret it how you want. It might be a story about a funny or an embarrassing mistake you made, or it might be a serious post about something you learned while sailing, or something you learned from a book or a course, or even a tale in praise of a favorite instructor or coach. It can be about racing or cruising or day-sailing.If you have pictures or video we’d love to see them. The idea is for us to create a collection of our learning experiences that will be of interest to fellow sailors.”

Rules

  1. Write a post on your blog about a “learning experience” that is related to sailing.
  2. Link to the announcement post on the Proper Course blog.
  3. To submit your entry, email tillermeister [at] gmail [dot] com with your permalink url and post title.
  4. Recommended: Give your story a title that is more descriptive than “Learning Experience”.
  5. Recommended: Follow the Proper Course blog to visit the different entries and comment on them.

All participating bloggers will get 3 links:

  1. Every day or so Tillerman will post a listing of new stories.
  2. After the deadline, Tillerman will post a complete listing of all entries.
  3. There will also be a final results list here on Group Writing Projects.
