ALL RIGHT!!! Time for a Writing Sprint! #june19writingsprint
is open to all authors, in all genres, pushing to work our wips. Here are the Admin rules:
1. Follow the #june19writingsprint
hashtag so you can stay up to date on what your fellow writers are doing.
2. Feel free to invite other authors to join in by reposting these images + script + hashtags.
3. This is not a follow loop to get followers, but a way to motivate so that your word count increases. There’s no pressure to follow anyone, even the host @lawrencehallauthor but if you do, I follow back.
Writing Sprint rules:
1. CHOOSE DATE(S)/TIME(S) + REMOVE ALL DISTRACTIONS - At the start time + before you begin, check emails, social media, go to the bathroom, get a drink, pick some music etc. Have all this ready before you begin writing, then turn off your phone and disconnect from the internet.
2. KNOW WHAT YOU ARE GOING TO WRITE - Have a single paragraph description or breakdown. If you are a Panser then have a general idea of your scene(s).
3. START THE CLOCK - Set the timer for 30 minutes then write as fast as you can go without sacrificing quality. Don't crank out gibberish, but push yourself. Don't worry about editing.
4. RECORD THE RESULTS - Return to the post and write down your word count. Congratulate all who participate.
A writing sprint is when several of us begin at the same time and write uninterrupted for half an hour. At the end of the sprint you return to the thread and post your word count. Then we all pat each other on the back and do it again another day 😁.
You will be highly motivated to write your a$$ off for that 30 minutes when you know you have to post your result, so that you don’t come in last place. And even if you are last, you’ll still have moved your wip forward. We’ll all be accountable to each other.
Let’s have fun!
