|I woke up to find that Roseanna had written a thousand words and had three cups of coffee before I had even opened my eyes.|
|Here's where we're spending most of our time. These chairs are incredible.|

We both wrote 10,000 words yesterday and hope to do it again today. How are you guys doing? It's been so fun watching all the word wars happening. I look forward to applauding your progress throughout the day!
If you're just joining us on the word war (or if today's the first you've heard of it) here's a quick recap:
A word war is when you and another writer (or in this case, lots of other writers!) compete to see who can write the most in a designated period of time. This word war began Thursday and will end on Monday. It's a come-and-go, write-when-you-can style of war, so it's not too late to join us!
The goal is to buckle down and focus on our manuscripts whenever we can, make good use of our writing time, and encourage each other as we do. Hopefully you'll be meeting new writers and deepening friendships as the weekend goes on!
Here's how you can connect with each other:
1. In the comments section of the blog. Something as simple as "Just wrote 1,000 words in the last hour!" is fine. There's strength in being able to encourage each other and in knowing that others are hard at work too.
2. On Twitter, using the hashtag #gtwchat or on the Go Teen Writers Facebook Group. (This is a closed group, so if you're not a member yet, apply to join and then shoot me an email telling me so that I can get you approved pronto.)
