PENALTY EXPLANATION

If you don’t write for a day, or you are late, you owe 1k. If you miss 2 days in a row or are late or a mix of both, you owe 2k. If you do this for 3 days in a row, you owe 4k. The word count will double for every day in a row that is missed.

As long as you are writing at least one word every day and PMing your word count on time, this won’t apply.

If you happen to be in the middle of making up your penalty and you are late or miss another day, the system will restart. This includes if you’ve also finished making up your word count and happen to miss a day/report your count after the deadline. What I mean by the system restarting is that if you are making up/have finished making up your penalty, it starts back at day one as long as you didn’t miss it in a row.

Example:

Missed deadline day one: owe 1k
Missed deadline second day in a row: owe 2k
Missed deadline third day in a row: owe 4k
[So and so makes up the word count]
Misses deadline a few days later: owe 1k
And so forth…

(If you still don’t understand, no worries. I will always tell you how much you owe either way.)
This is just to help you understand why you owe the word count you owe if you miss the deadline or don’t write.

PLEASE READ

The rules exist for a good reason. I’m elaborating on rules that need to be enforced.

Be active. What does this mean? We encourage all participants to be active and interact with those who are also in this challenge.

Don’t be rude. This is obvious. We don’t encourage bullying and arguments. We want this to be a friendly challenge where you can find like-minded friends who are just trying to finish a story like you. Make friends! I made the bestest of friends here.

You MUST write something and post your word count by 12 AM MDT. This is important. If you don’t know what that timezone is, Google is your friend. Then convert that to your timezone so you know what time to submit your word count by in your own timezone. We do not encourage late word counts. Please submit on time.

Support each other. This was not followed by everyone. If you post once and leave, whatever. But if you are continuing to post in this thread without giving back to the people praising you, I will have to message you about it. This rule exists for a reason. We are friends. We are a community here. We support each other. Please support other authors as well because we all need it. Don’t come here for your own gain and expect something in return. It is rude.
