Saturday Word Wars

I'm around most of the day (waiting for hubby's present to be delivered) so we can do as many rounds of these as wanted/needed. I'm working on revising a WIP started in Feb and untouched/revisited until last night when I realized it needs quite a bit of work to make the timelines gel (it's a crossover). Not sure I will log a lot of words - but I definitely will use the time to revise!

Round 1: 07:00 AM PST (15:00 UTC) to 07:25 AM PST (15:25 UTC)
Round 2: 07:35 AM PST (15:35 UTC) to 08:00 AM PST (16:00 UTC)
Round 3: 08:10 AM PST (16:10 UTC) to 08:35 AM PST (16:35 UTC)
Round 4: 08:45 AM PST (16:45 UTC) to 09:10 AM PST (17:10 UTC)

Results:

thtwzjustadream: 311 words
severina2001: 1452 words
craterdweller: 9 words - I'm revising - at one point it was a negative number so I'll take it as a win!

Total!: 1772 words and a few revised scenes in a WIP

Woot Woot! I'm just finishing a short fic -- trying to get back into the mindset to re-tackle the next chapter of Nanofic.

Love the Santa icons! Am late but here - probably popping in and out 'cause....breakfast. But will update with words managed this AM.

We got our first snow today. :\ I can hear the cars slussshing through it out the window.

Re: Round 1: End
171 for me. Finished one fic and started another. Hoping if I can get these two out of the way I'll be ready for more Nano.

We got snow too last night. Not as much as expected, though.

Re: Round 2: Start

311 words so far! Now, brunch time... so will probably be picking back up after you're done. But there will be more words, I'm sure- thanks for the reason to get moving on it today!

Re: Round 3: End
A good start! and a much better way to calculate. :)

394 words for me. Almost done my first scene.

Round 4: End
Oops - guess I am really focused today - missed by a few minutes;

I'm still learning scrivener and trying to wrap my head around plotting/writing terms - mostly I've been a panster - so figuring out things like turning points and even what designates a "scene" is relatively new, LOL.

Re: Round 4: End
513 for me this round, for a total of 1452 words altogether. I'm kinda shocked, didn't think I'd get that many with the way the day started!

I don't think in those terms either. I just write and let the scenes go until what I've needed to say is done!

I'm gonna finish THIS scene -- which somehow grew larger than expected -- and then work on some graphic stuff that I have due as well... but I'll be around later if you wanna do this again. Just make a post or contact me somehow so I'll know what time!

Re: Round 4: End
Yeah, I need to get back onto that mega-word bike if I'm going to finish everything I need to finish!

PM is good. Do you have any idea what time you're thinking of?

Re: Round 4: End
i'm free the whole day- I'm going to finish the scene I am currently editing - then take a short break to maybe fill some of those prompt-in-a-box things with icons/graphics.
