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 have managed the following in the years since we started:

2013: 10.3 MILLION!
2014: 14.1 MILLION!
2015: 15.9 MILLION!
2016: 12.6 MILLION!
2017: 6 MILLION!
2018: 6.2 MILLION!
2019: 5.1 MILLION!
2020: 4.6 MILLION!

Now, we may have gone down in the millions over recent years, but remember LJ users left in droves over the last few years, and we are still out there kicking butt on the productivity, and still aiming for GREAT THINGS in 2021! Can we get back to 5 MILLION? YOU BET WE CAN! So come join us, and help make it happen!

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!
