I'm currently on chapter 14 of 91 chapters. And I'm now at 181,291. (I started at 194,000.)
Not bad. Shockingly, I'm on track for success. I really didn't think I could cut that many words. But I'm set on proving to myself that I can. And the story will be so much tighter and better from having done so.
But still painful.
So set a goal and work hard toward it. If I can do it, so can you!
What's a word war?
How does it work?
You can also start mini word wars in the comments section of this blog, or on the Go Teen Writers Community Facebook group. (If you apply to join, leave me a comment on the blog so I can get you approved.)
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 write. Hopefully you'll be meeting new writers and deepening friendships as the war goes on!
How long does it last?
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, and you don't have to participate every day.
How is your word war going? Share in the comments.
