rules
ONE. welcome to #FinishYourNovel, where we specialize in helping writers complete the first drafts of their new (or work-in-progress) novels. If you’re a chronic procrastinator, have trouble staying on task, or an ordinary writer (though I’m pretty sure there’s no such thing) who wants to finish their novel, this is the perfect place for you!

TWO. requirements:
— be an active user
— don’t be rude/racist/a bully in any way

THREE. rules:
— don’t lie about your word count
— accept penalty (if you missed a day)
— you MUST write something everyday and PM this account the word count by 9:00 PM (EST)
— doesn’t matter if you only wrote one word, just write something
— use the hashtag (optional)
— get out of penalty by writing double the highest amount
— support each other
— enjoy the book writing experience

FOUR.
penalty; name posted on wall of shame
prize; [tbd] and name posted on wall of important people

FIVE. submitting word counts:
— you will submit word counts by logging them in yourself (make sure your username is placed in the correct alphabetical order. please do not copy my code, delete anything, change anyone else’s count! if you do, I will know. the wiki page will close as soon as the clock hits 9 PM and reopen for the next day’s count.

The rules are a bit different than before. You sure you read everything through properly?

Hey, I have a question. Is it required that we really finish our novel, or do we just set a word count and write to it? Thank you! :slight_smile:

I encourage people to try to finish, the whole point of this is you finish but it’s not required. As long as you get more than what you had before done

(though if you don’t finish, you will receive penalty)

I did read through everything, although since I didn’t participate last month I’m not exaclty sure what the differences are. My only question is that the “click here” link for submitting word counts doesn’t seem to be working for me.

Ah, I see (just wanted to make sure since you submitted so quickly)

The link will work in a few minutes

Actually, one more question. When counting words, is it based on the calendar day or 24 hr periods. Like if I write after 9pm and after submitting one day, can I count that in my next day’s submission?
