Word War: New Year's Eve

I will be hosting my first Word War on December 31, New Year's Eve. A Word War is a competition where writers write on their project for a certain amount of time, and the competitor with the highest increase in word count wins.

Time: One hour.
When: Anytime on the 31st of December, in your time zone.

1) You must write only for one hour.

2) The War will take place for one hour in your time zone, on the 31st of December.

3) To enter the Word War, post your starting word count in the comments section. Then, on the 1st of January, post it on a second post I will create saying that finishing entries can now be submitted. I am doing it this way to avoid people seeing others' wordcounts before they compete themselves (through differing time zones).

I may compete in this; but if I do and I win, I will not take a place; it will go to the next highest and so on, unless there are not enough entries to fill out the 3 places.

This is the first Word War that I am hosting, so please bear with me if I haven't explained it very well, and feel free to ask questions!



  1. I might do this.

  2. Hmmmm...the 31st...I'm busy then :( Maybe I'll be able to join in on the next one :)

    1. You could always stay up late, and do it from 11 to 12 o'clock...

    2. That might work...unless I'm really tired and can hardly type. I'm going swing dancing with my brother and we usually get back at 12:00 AM.

  3. Do I have to write on the 31st? It won't work for me to do it then, but I could do it another day...
