After spending most of last week at a teen writers conference here in Kansas City (The One Year Adventure Novel summer workshop) I'm attempting to plug back into the real world. Like where people ask me to get them juice instead of to sign their shirt.

Jill and I had a fun time connecting with several writers we know through Go Teen Writers, like Ellana Turrell and Leah Good. And we met lots of new writers who are full of passion and talent and love for Doctor Who.
While we were away from the blog, there was a word war going on! Thirty-four writers banded together and wrote an amazing 333,329 words last week. How awesome is that? It was fun to see how you all encouraged each other.
The most prolific writers last week were:
Grace S. with 63,452 words
Alyson Dow with 31,027 words
and Layla H. with 30, 103 words
These girls won their choice of a free download of Go Teen Writers: How to Turn Your First Draft into a Published Book, a free download of The Revised Life of Ellie Sweet, or a copy of Captives by Jill Williamson. Congratulations! We'll have to have another word war this summer, for sure.
