A community to promote writing and creativity. We will write <s>one</s> 18 million words this year!
It started like this:

I WANT TO WRITE A MILLION WORDS!!! Well, not by myself, but I want to help get a million words written! I've had some nice discussions lately with people about writing and some lovely reviews of what was written last year, and now I'm motivated. I WANT TO WRITE A MILLION WORDS!!!!

Only now it's grown! We did the million words! We did ten million words! In 2015 we did 15 million words! in 2016 we managed 12.6K, but we aim for bigger and brighter in 2017 (and you know, every word is a good thing!), so how about: 13 million in 2017?

These thirteen million words aren't to do anything but serve as a driving point to do more and to become better artists/writers. We're not giving anything to charity for it, we most likely won't cure even a hangnail!

We'll need writers, graphic artists, cheerleaders, coaches, betas, critiquers... ALL THE THINGS. Fandom doesn't matter, original fiction is beautiful.

What do we do here? What ever it takes to get more creativity out of you. We've got prompts, challenges, discussions, groups, accolades, critiques, squees, interviews, round-robins, and pushy people checking your goals if you want them to!
