Word Wars!!!!!

All right, all you lurkers.  We have a challenge for you. How many of you are NOT doing NaNoWriMo? Go on, raise your hands. Go on, I'm waiting....okay...I see. Well guess what...that's okay. But are you feeling left out, like you're not part of the "in crowd"?

Then come join us at!!!!!! I am not doing Nano for real this time, but I am participating in chats, word wars, and submissions of snippets of everyone's stories as we write like crazy people...for 10 minutes at a time. I have 10 minutes. I might even have 30 minutes. And who knows what damage I could do to my WIP during that time?

To be honest, it's only been doing these Word Wars that has kept me moving forward at all. If left to my own devices, I would languish, lost in the computer and facebook, avoiding getting started because it always takes too long to write. I don't have 2 hours at a time to dedicate to it. But 30 minutes...yeah, I do.

Come on...join know you want to...

Join the MMW yahoo group, then read some of the past emails to find out how to join us on We have our own private chat room, where we can word war and chat and cheer each other on!

Today, at 3:30 pm AZ time (that's the same for Mountain Standard right now, and 5:30 Eastern, 2:30 Pacific), we'll be there, at least Nikki and I, along with a few other friends. Come join the word wars, and beef up your word count, just a few words at a time. It'll be good for you, I promise!


  1. Well, I AM doing nano...
    Sounds like a way fun idea though. By the end of the month, you may wish you would have participated in nano :)

  2. Ha ha, Jolene! :) I am kind of wishing I had committed right now, but this way I keep writing and still make progress without wanting to bang my head against the wall because I didn't reach my daily goals. I'm a chicken, I know. :)

  3. Good Luck and have fun girls! I'm shuttling kids at that time.

  4. Sounds fun. I'm not doing Nano either. I haven't actually been writing at all this month, but I hope to start a new project this week.

  5. I'm not a NaNoite either, but I'm busy at your designated time.

    Good luck ladies!
