I have the glorious privilege of waving you through on the last day of our April WORD WAR! I've been following your comments and LOVE the dedication and crazy competitiveness of your battling keyboards.
You can't see me, but I'm ready for battle and cheering you on. Kind of like William Wallace.
So, you know. Get going or my face will freeze like this and aint nobody wanting that.
What it is: 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 words in a designated period of time.
This word war began on Monday and will end tonight, Friday. It's a come-and-go, write-when-you-can style of war, so it's never too late to join!
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. Or you can challenge each other to word wars. 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 #GTWwordwar 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 Stephanie an email so she can approve you pronto.)
Let's finish strong, friends!
