AS PROMISED ... WORD SPRINTS/WAR

CALLING ALL PEOPLE THAT WANT A TIMED WRITING PUSH! IT TIME TO WAR!

What is a sprint or a war? Well it's all the same thing. You write and fast as you can in a time frame, normally trying to beat another person. But it this case, we are going to just cram as much words a we can in 30 min time frames.

If you are a person that works under pressure, or your wind tends to wander when left free (that's me) this might be good for you. Also perfect for busy people who "can't get the time in!"

So this is how this is going to work. From now 7:25PM PST until midnight PST at the top of every hour I will hold a 30min war. This give people time to plan.

I will do more tomorrow and Sunday. All you have to do is check in here and then post at 30 mins past your word count for that half hour.

SO WHO IS WITH ME?

Round 1 - thtwzjustadream with 614 words and witchyemerald with 141 words and part A done for mating_games voting.

Round 2 witchyemerald with 132 words and finished all voting for mating_games weakmoments with 1135 words (holy moly!)

Round 3 witchyemerald 203

Round 4 witchyemerald 120 finishing a drabble too

Just saw this - I'm definitely up for these - not sure how many I will make tonight as I'm a true morning person (my day usually starts around 4:30 am Pacific time) but will definitely have a go at many of these tomorrow and Sunday.

Thanks for doing this!

Done for this round! LIkely it for the night, but got 614 words down on the reward fic. And I think I am onto something because it is making me tear up and that is not usual!

Hi! I saw this around 5 til midnight my time so I thought I'd write for a half hour since I missed the other ones! The words started getting blurry and my eyes were hard to keep open, so for tonight, it's my one and only sprint! I did write like the wind though! 1135 words! I'll catch up on my words yet!

Night! I'll be back tomorrow and Sunday though, for sure!I've got stories to finish and words to write and bookmarks to create! :D

I couldn't join in with you since it was 5AM here, but timezones aren't enough to stop me so I just timed thirty minutes from my 11PM of Saturday and wrote 422 words.
