The 100 words for 100 days writing challenge is underway! I crunched some numbers and here's how the age groups broke down:
12 or younger - 8 participants
13, 14, 15 - 109 participants (yowzer!)
16, 17, 18 - 91 participants
19, 20, 21 - 30 participants
Old fogies group - 22 participants (We're small, but mighty!)
Because they have the most participants, everyone in the 13, 14, 15 age group has automatically been entered to win a 5,000 word critique. The drawing for that will happen at the end of the challenge.
Also, at the end of the writing challenge, whichever age group wrote the most words per person will be entered to win an additional 5,000 word critique. So for example, we'll add up all the words the 12 or younger group wrote and divide by 8 to arrive at their words per person total. Which means every word you write helps your age group.
Also, I'm thrilled to announce the winners from our 500 word free-write:
Deborah Rocheleau (also placed first)
Julie Potrykus (also placed second)
Congratulations to all of you! And a HUGE thank you to Erica Vetsch and Shellie Neumeier who devoted so much time to this contest.
Some of the winning entries will be available on Saturday. Have a great day, everyone!
