Word War Day Four!

Jill again. Today is the fourth day of our Go Teen Writers word war. How you all doing? My edits are moving along, slow and steady. I'm still trying to find my rhythm!

Didn't know we were having a word war? Read on to find out what this is all about.

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 Friday night. 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.

Stay focused. You can do it!

    1. Sorry, I had to go and only got a few words in :(. Hopefully I'll be able to do a longer war later in the day!

    2. That's ok! :)
      The 468 I got in weren't my best, but it helped me through a slow spot. See you later!

  3. I'm not officially participating in the Word War today, but I did manage to get 2,538 words in the three hours I've worked so far today. That's the most I've gotten in one day in a long time! Blessings to all the other writers honing their craft today. Keep up the good work, everyone!

    1. That's AWESOME Olivia, keep it up!

    2. Thank you, Savannah!

  4. Does anyone want to War right now? I've kind of been putting my WIPs away in the corner of my head where I attempt to forget about it... but I am determined to do it right now! Anyone around?

  5. Does anyone wanna war? It's pretty quiet 'round here today...;) 25-35?

  6. Does anyone want to war from :05 to :20 or something?
