I dare you to write 2k per day

R.J. Blain

retired user

Greetings, Authonomites!

A lot of us waste (spend) a lot of time on the forums. I would like to issue a challenge to those who want to write but spend most of their time procrastinating. Starting today, right now, at this very moment, I challenge you to write 2,000 words per day for 5 days of each week. Please try to report in either each day or at the end of the week so I can update your word count. I will be linking participants to their page unless they want me to link to the project they are working on.

FAQ:

- You may start any day of a rotation. You need not participate an entire week if you're new.
- There is no need to link any of the words written. This is an honor system.
- Participation is only gauged by the previous week and current week. If you need to go away a week, no hard feelings, just come back when you can!

I'm in but 2000 words at the moment is a bit difficult. I've only just started my next project so I'm working on a basic plot outline which is taking far longer than I imagined. I have a sort of beginning and that's it for now. But I will try.

Words written today: 507

Oh wow, I love a good challenge. A few Q's:

1. Do we have to post the words on Authonomy? I try to wait until I edit somewhat before I add, plus I write long hand as my first draft. Or can we maybe post on a blog, ect, and share the link?

2. Can I start tomorrow?

1: No. All I need is an estimated word count of how much you have written during the week. No need to share the words with anyone unless you want to.

2: Yes.

Will add these questions to the main post Smile And adding your name into the list!

I wish I had the time too. I think one time, when I didn't have my kids all day, I wrote like 4k. BIGGEST WORD COUNT EVER, It was rather astonishing for me. Wink
