Fight a Word War: NaNoWriMo Tip #10

All writers struggle with word counts and deadlines. National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo) writers have found an innovative solution to the problem: word wars.

In a word war, writers pick a quick time frame and frantically write together for a short period of time. These writing sprints can help you avoid writers’ block and finish your first draft. Follow this Facebook link or this NaNoWriMo link to join a word war right now.

Here’s how to find a Word War Buddy: “If you’re looking for Writing Buddies to word war with, this is the place to ask. To request a buddy, please include primary mode of contact and your time zone, so that it’ll make syncing up for word wars a bit easier. Don’t post unmangled email addresses unless you REALLY like getting spammed … You can always exchange email via NaNoMail.”
