One Million Words
Posting Access:
All Members , Moderated
A community to promote writing and creativity. We will write <s>one</s> 4 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.

Only now it's grown! We did the million words! We did ten million words! We made 15 million words in 2015; we produced 12.6 million in 2016, and we did just over 6 million for each year in 2017 and 2018 with a reduced number of active members. In 2019 we managed 5 million words (but you know, every word is a good thing!).

In 2020, let's try to increase that total again! Let's aim for: 6 million! YOU KNOW YOU WANT TO JOIN IN!

These millions of 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!
