How goes it?
We had an awesome day yesterday. Shannon finished her book! Then she went right into editing. Stephanie has twelve pages left on her edit, and at the time of typing this post, I was at 9425 words and still going!
Starbucks WiFi did not work tonight, so I'm typing this post on Stephanie's phone. Totally proud of myself for figuring out how to add pictures...
We're thinking about you all and watching your word wars with great admiration.
How did you all do yesterday? Keep it up! We're rooting for you!
If you're just joining us on the word war (or if today's the first you've heard of it) here's a quick recap:
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 last Thursday and will end on Tuesday night. It's a come-and-go, write-when-you-can style of war, so it's not too late to join us!
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. 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 telling her so that she can get you approved pronto.)
Looking forward to a long day of writing with you!
