Tuesday Night Word War

Hail, everyone!  I have come to announce the beginning of weekly Tuesday Night Word Wars.

For those of you who don't know, Word Wars are a kind of writing challenge.  Basically, you write as much as you can in an allotted amount of time.  The writer who writes the most words wins the Word War.

This is not one of my previous word wars (Word War I, II, and III).  This is like a miniature version of those.   It is a little shorter, and there will be no button award for the winner. The stakes are a bit smaller, but the rules and writings are the same.

Here's the rules:

1) You must write only in the allotted time.  No going over, no going before!  Count only the words you wrote during the time.  If you can't write during the time that I will post below, write for the same amount at another time.

2) The Word War will last from 6:00 to 9:00 PM CST time.  Like I said above, if you can't write at that time, write for three hours some other time in the day.

3)  To enter the Word War, you must post your current word count in the comment section before the Word War.  After the Word War is done, you can then post your increased word count in the comment section.  The writer who writes the most wins!

I shall probably not participate in this one, but I wish all of you writers the best of luck!  Write well, write hard, and don't let Procrastination defeat you!

Let the Warring begin!

If I wasn't working on book edits, this would be amazing tonight! Excited for the future.

Nice addition to the blog, Jake. :D Sounds like the perfect motivation to me. My Current count on the rewrite of SOTD is 10,118. I don't know if I'll be able to do that exact time slot, but I will def. participate, even if it's at a different time slot. Thanks!

I don't think I could write for 3 hours straight. I've missed this word war too. But maybe I'll try and join in next time. It sounds like fun.

Howdy! I found your blog last night while looking around at place to find a blog I suppose.
Always nice to find other writers about. Especially ones who put up challenges...if you do this again I will have to join in me thinks.
Been reading over your blog and enjoying it lots 8-D
And now, that is all. I must be off and save some of my characters who got themselves into trouble.

I'm trying to write my nover (not for the Word War) and procrastination is winning. He's coming in fast, and Inspiration has fled the battlefield (I don't think he was ever on the battlefield). Inspiration is never easy to come by.
