Hoping to kick-start the comm again

Hello! Anybody out there? *crickets*

Do you have something that needs writing, but you need a little push to get it done? Come join me!

I haven't posted here for ages, and would like to get it going again. Anyone interested in word warring?

I'll be power writing for the next two days (Thursday and Friday) and was hoping to get some interest going in some word war challenges while I'm working at the library. I thought I'd check in now to see if there will be any interest out there for tomorrow.

Library opens at 10:00 but I might try earlier for McD's or Tim's which both have wifi as well. If you are interested, look for posts here tomorrow and/or Friday.

[Click for a refresher on the process]
Write fanfic, original, whatever you'd like. Or maybe you want to edit or re-write or type. No problem! Basically this is just a motivational tool that gives you a short challenge, during which time you're hopefully able to set aside everything else and focus on your task.

Refresher of the process:
  • Someone posts a daily challenge - this can be done by anyone that has joined the comm
  • Someone posts a challenge as a comment to the daily post, with a start time and length (usually 30-45 minutes)
  • Others sign up (provide details or not about what you're writing, your choice) by replying to the challenge comment
  • When the start time is reached, everyone begins writing
  • When the time is up, everyone stops writing, adds up their number of words, and checks back in.


That's it. Easy-peasy.


Anyone interested in joining me, feel free to comment here and then keep an eye out on the comm tomorrow. Or just join directly on the daily post in the morning. I should be checking in sometime before 10:30am, Eastern Time, and I'm hoping to squeeze in three challenges each day. Participate in any or all, as you wish. :)

Feel free to spread the word. All are welcome.
