I have a week to myself. A whole week! And I intend to get some work done. But with no one around to keep me on task, I'm worried I might fall into watching Jane Austen movies all week and eating ice cream.
And while that would be amazingly enjoyable, it would not help me get this book done. And I very much want to get this book done. The sooner, the better.
All that to say, Stephanie suggested I challenge you all to a friendly word war. And I thought... YES! I will do this!
What is a word war?
A word war is a competition to see who can write the most words in a set period of time. Sometimes people word war for minutes or hours or a whole day. This time we're doing it for five days!
When is it?
Monday, July 21 through Friday, July 25, 2014. Join us for any of the days and times you're available.
Where will it be?
Right here on the blog. There'll be a post each day, and you can leave comments as you make progress throughout the day or just post your word total when you're done writing. You can also leave comments of encouragement for the other writers.
Why do a word war?
Not only do word wars help you focus on your story for a period of time, but you can get a break from the isolation of writing. You get to encourage writers and be encouraged as well.
Are there prizes?
Anyone who comments on THIS POST with an "I'm in!" will be entered to win their choice of one copy of a book by myself or Stephanie. That's one book for one winner. So let's us know if you're going to participate!
Hope to see you here on Monday!
