Greetings and salutations, Pinoywrimos! How’s your word count?
Me, don’t ask. November is beating me so bad, but it’s not a lost cause yet! I’m still very zen about it because I’m not counting my words, but wait until I start counting and see me panic. Haha. (Try it — don’t count your words, and you’ll be very relaxed. But keep on writing!)
Anyway, just two announcements for today!
We had a blast at the write-in last weekend — were you there? If you were, then I hope you enjoyed the craziness! We’ll have another one this weekend, and we will announce final details later this week.
BUT, If you can’t go to the write-ins because of geography, but you still want a write-in, we’re encouraging you guys to group together and form your own write-in!
Details can be found on this thread. You can also look for write-ins in your area in that thread. So yay!
WORD WAR WEDNESDAY!
Today is the first Word War Wednesday! If you’re in dire need of a word count boost, a word war may just help you get that boost you need. Word Wars are fun games where wrimos go head to head and write as much as they can in the time span indicated. If you’ve ever played sprints with Timmy the bot in the chat room, it’s kind of like that. We will keep a scorecard of wars for the rest of the month, and whoever gets the most words written during the war will win a prize during the TGIO!
Now since we have squads, we will add another category for the word wars — the squad war. The team with the highest average word count accumulated during all word wars in November will win a prize for the month.
If you’re a member of a squad, you can join both the indvidual and squad war, and have a chance to win at both. But you can also just join the individual word war or just the squad war — just let us know before the war starts. (If you missed our chat room announcement, you can read it here)
More details in this thread! Our first Word War Wednesday will be tonight. Chat starts 9:00pm, first battle at 9:30pm!
Let the battles begin! Happy writing everyone, and see you tonight!
