Congratulations to those who completed the 100 for 100 challenge!

Stephanie here. In case you missed it, back in September we started a writing challenge where writers signed up to write 100 words everyday for 100 days.

My daughter, who turned seven during the challenge, was one of the participants. We did really well for a couple weeks, and then life got in the way and progress became much more sporadic. But McKenna did write 2,104 words of a story that she never would have without the challenge. The same is true for a lot of you too. Maybe you didn't finish the challenge, but it encouraged you to write more than you would have without it. And we think that's awesome.

Those who completed the challenge wrote a collective 2,933,744 words. Amazing.

The writers who wrote the most during the challenge are:

Catherine McClatchie: 178,634
Olivia Rivers: 157,400
Kendra E. Ardnek: 135,776

The age group that had the most finishers was those age 16-18, with 31 finishing.

  1. Congratulations, everyone! 2,933,744 words! That is a lot.

  2. Congratulations to every person!!! I see a few of my friends on that list!!! Great job, guys!!!!! This is one of the best things that has ever happened in my writing life :)

  3. Congratulations, everyone! And thanks, Ms. Morrill, for organizing this!

  4. This is so fantastic! Way to go everyone who finished, and also everyone who wrote more words than they would have otherwise. I've entered 3, but only won one. Some day I'll finish another one *in Aragorn voice* but today is not that day.
    Thanks for organizing this again, Stephanie! I've loved it every time, even if I haven't won yet. Also, thanks for commenting on my blog.

    1. If you've won one, you're doing better than me :) And it was my pleasure!

  5. Congratulations to everyone who participated! It was a lot of fun. :)

  6. Oh no, I totally forgot to email you with my final word count! *facepalm* A grand example of Catsi's fantastic memory, everyone.

    Anyway, great job, guys! I finished up with somewhere close to 100K. I can't remember what my actual total was. XD

  7. Congratulations everyone! Good work!

    And I made the top 3!!!! Wow. I mean, I knew I'd written a lot, but ... that represents two finished projects, a short story that I'd been procrastinating on, and then the second draft of a novel whose first draft had taken me five years to complete. *Happy dance*

  8. Yaaaaaay! Awesome job, everyone! That is a lot of words! :)

  9. Awesome work everybody! And thank you Mrs. Morrill for organizing this. It was such a great time, I had a blast!

  10. Hooray for everyone! Congratulations on writing so much, top three!

  11. Hey! I was just curious... did you get my e-mail? I think I finished the challenge (unless I didn't count right) and wondered if you got it.
    Thanks and congrats everyone!

    1. Hey, Kara. I searched my email and didn't see anything from you... Lost in cyberspace, perhaps?

    2. Oh, OK. I guess then I'm too late. :(

    3. You're welcome to email me again, and I can add you to the list, Kara.

    4. I just re-sent it! Thanks again!
      God bless!

  12. Congrats everyone! Wish I could have joined. College and work make things a challenge : )

  13. Congratulations, everyone!! *scatters confetti*

  14. Yay everybody!!! *flings confetti*

    Um... I finished the challenge and emailed you but I don't see my name on the list...

    ~Robyn Hoode

    1. Try emailing her again, looks like, as she told Kara above. :)

    2. I'm glad you said something! I just found it when I searched for your name. Apparently I didn't file it into the right folder, which is probably because I was in a car on my way to Nebraska as most the emails came in. Thanks for letting me know!

  15. Congrats to everyone who finished!! :D McKenna did fantastic! :)

    I never could have gotten so far I my novel Slaved without this, THANK YOU! :)
