Write-a-thon TONIGHT!!!

Just a reminder, I'll be online for my first evening write-a-thon tonight. If any of you want to join me, post your starting time at the end of this blog, along with your starting word count. Then, no later than 12:15 tonight, post your finishing time and word count, then your total words written in those four hours. If you want to open up a chat window with me and any of our fellow writers, I'll be on MSN Live (Windows live messenger?) during that time (user name is writingpal AT live.com). Or, if you're on Yahoo, I'll open that one too (luv2writefantasy user name). Just remember, the chat window is for support purposes, not to talk the whole time. lol

Hope to see you tonight!!!

I'm going to try and come. How does the word count work if my goal is to revise? I don't think I'll actually move up. I've cut about 3000 words the last month just doing little things. :)

No promises, I don't know what the hubby has planned and it will be late here by the time you start, but I'll try and stop by.

In case: current word count--84,657. For me this would be a better gage of productivity--editing on page 137/185.

Hi Charity,

However it works best for you. I just want to create a support network for whatever phase of writing we happen to be in. Hope to see you tonight then. :)

That's awesome, Karen! I'll see what I can't do!

Sounds like fun! I probably can't be here for four non-stop hours with all the kids around, but I'll see what I can do.

Starting word count: 56,918

I'm in for at least an hour. I'm curious to see how much I can type in that length of time.

Taffy said...

1571 words! I'll add them to my MS I've been editing.

Karen Hoover said...

Way to go, Taffy! Thanks for joining us. Hope you'll do it again soon. :)
