Word Wars! Better late than never...

Eee... sorry for the late start. I got run over by jet lag, and am just now fully conscious for the day. Will be starting round 1 at 11:20am - 25 minutes per round, with five minutes between each of the four rounds.

Sound good? What's everyone working on? I'm going to try to accomplish something with the Weekend Challenge prompts I drew. :)

~Update~
Success! Word totals for this morning:
Myself- 573 words
Asphalt - 780 words
cmk488 - 1,147

Woo hoo! Words.

I'm in. Not quite sure what I'm working on yet. Have a bunch of prompts, so I'll just take them one at a time. Thanks for doing this!

Sure thing! I need to kick-start my writing for the month - thankfully it's finally a quiet weekend, so I'm hopeful. :)

I woke up at 6 AM and panicked because I forgot you and I were on opposite ends of the country! Hahaha. It's all good though. I'll be in for a couple rounds and then I have to hit the grocery store before it gets insane.

I'm with you in spirit, trying to finish a chapter today. Btw, do you know mywriteclub? It offers a sprinting space where people can do sprints together. It's really cool because ot lets you see how many words everyone has written and how much time you have left. (And you can toggle everything, so if you don't want to see the countdown or the wordcounts, you don't have to.)

Hi there! No, have not heard of that, but will definitely check it out. Think it would be a good tool to recommend for NaNo? I'm going to do some posts for November.

Round one is done! 168 words for me - not bad for just getting going! How'd you do?

Excellent work! I managed 780 and got my weekend challenge done!

I'm out - the kids are up and overtaking my space. Good luck with the rest of the rounds!

Round two is done! I'm at 226 words total for the day so far - I kind of paused to edit in round two. Bad habit of mine, over-editing. Round three will be all forward motion, I hope - starts at 12:14pm Eastern until 12:40p Eastern!

I hear you about the over-editing. I think that's what's slowing me down. I also feel like picking up what I've written so far today and throwing it against the wall and starting over because I'm dragging myself kicking and screaming through this one.

Round three is done! 413 words total for me - and well on my way into a ficlet, yay! I'm feeling hopeful of actually starting and finishing a ficlet in the course of a day for once- that'd be nice.

Round four starts at 12:55p E, and goes 'til 1:20p!

614 that round, but I started at the original start time & then had 10 bonus minutes.

And yes, I started from scratch and am much happier with the result right now.

Word Wars are complete! A total of 573 words for me - and I'm going to try to keep at them this afternoon, see if I can get to the end. :)

233 for the last round (I was editing again). 1147 on the day. Not quite finished with the story yet, but I should wrap it up by tomorrow.

Thanks for doing this!

Fantastic! You're most welcome- might aim for these every other week or so through November. Have a good weekend!
