The format's pretty simple. There's a projects list, where people have a post to write and update their list (probably would make a new thread for that). There's an update thread, where people post regularly about what they've accomplished for their tasks, and post support and updates. And the rest is just you accomplishing things you want or need to do!
Spring starts Wednesday, March 20, and ends Friday, June 21, so that's when the event would be run.
So tell me, are you interested in seeing this event return?
I'd be interested! I always seem to have some sort of to-do list on hand, but some of them are larger than others and often impractical to list. And it'd be cool to make progress alongside everyone else with some larger bulletpoints. So yeah, sounds cool to me!

I kept thinking about this event! I'd be down for trying it again and hopefully getting some more stuff done. =D
Quotation of the Moment: "my new motivation idols are children's shows antagonists. no matter how often they fail to defeat 2-5 children every single week, they're back at it again the next episode with a barely modified plan and endless optimism. i aspire to live life like the entire plot depends on me trying again" —the-knights-who-say-book, Tumblr
Oh man, this is best timing, I'd be all over this event again. Been struggling with my eternal to-do list for ages and the last time this event took place, it did wonders for actually getting stuff done.
...and I haven't actually gotten much done since, so I can just pick up the same list where I left it off last time, with minimal changes :'D I need some sort of a permanent to-do-support-group.
I was excited to see this thread, cause Spring Cleaning was a really nice event! At first I thought I might not participate and just cheer everyone on, because I don't really have a project that would work for it... but then I thought I could take it most literally and do actual Spring Cleaning. It's time for me to get rid of all the junk I've been accumulating for so long. I've already started cleaning out my closet, so why not keep that up and do my whole room as well!
I might get a head start, because why wait? I don't need excuses to procrastinate. But if I'm done or nearly done with this by the time Spring comes around, I'll just have to think of something else. Either way, I'm happy you're bringing this back, June!
Oh heck yes, this is perfect timing since I've been really trying to get more of a handle on... well, life really. And lots of Things I've been putting off for no good reason. This will be a great opportunity to get some of that done.
Seeing as I've been thinking of getting a better desk and office chair for me.... yes! I've finally decided to embrace the fact that because I'm under five feet tall, "regular" furniture doesn't work too well for me, and "kids" furniture is best. So... replacing almost all of my bedroom furniture will probably be my project. I mean, my mattress is.... older than the recommended 8 years by.... multiples. lol
My projects list will probably look something like...
1) Pack to go home 2) OH MAN WHAT DO WITH ALL THESE BOOKS??? 3) Ponder which dice sets I can stomach leaving behind. 4) Cry about leaving Pursheen 5) Fill the local clothing bins with all this Primark nonsense (I just bought a new book yesterday THORN WHAT R DOING YOU NEED TO DECLUTTER, NOT GET MORE.)
Also writing-wise: I have some short werewolf pieces I want to post in my thread (already drafting one of Floren and Percy, and one of Floren and Calamity, and got a good idea for a Mildred and Cal piece too.)
I need to write a microfic piece for a March deadline, which is a little too early for this, but there's another deadline in like May I can work towards.
