✏ The Writing Marathon ✏

The Writing Marathon

It’s a new year and a new thread runner! This thread was originally made by the amazing @astrophile (design credit also goes to them) and has been taken over by me! Supreme dark lord bunny @JJJ000YYY!!!

This is a group for struggling writers to support each other. You don’t have to join if you want to come here for word wars and fun chats tho!

Every week, we will aim to write at least one chapter.

We’ll do word wars and sprints and try to write.

Caution: You may witness writers screaming about writing. You have been warned.

Rules

  1. Please fill out the form below if you wish to join.
  2. Be a good human being.
  3. If you don’t report on the spreadsheet for a month, we’ll tag you and check up on you.
  4. Don’t be a third derivative.
  5. Tag if you have questions!
  6. The more you participate, the more you get out of this!

@JJJ000YYY What should I do? I don’t have an ongoing story. O.o. I can write short stories. Maybe three per week. I write on day one, revise, rewrite on day 2. How’s that?

PS. I’m glad you measure by chapters, since I intend to write long hand this year. XD

You don’t have to put a title for your book or you can put “Many Projects” and just count the amount written since we’re going by amount instead of total now. You can also count editing if you’re really intent too. Just count how many chapters you edited per week and all

Writing is rewriting and honestly I’m not to strict on if you do one project or fifteen or what exactly you do with them so long as you can record it and slap it onto the spreadsheet
