I tried this exercise several times over the weekend. I didn’t make it beyond 400 words on my first attempt, but every other time I was in the 430s. The timer, clicking away beside me, helped me to stay focused. I may use this tactic more regularly from now on.
On a similar note, pmkester, one of our fellow Writer-A-Thoners, mentioned #writeclub, which is a twitter column facilitated by @FriNightWrites every Friday night from 8pm-2am EST. The idea is to encourage one another to write as much as possible in 30-minute writing sprints. (This is all the information I could find about #writeclub from Twitter. If I’m misinformed, pmkester, or if you’d like to share more information about #writeclub, please let me know.)
Enter your name and word count in the comments between now and midnight on Thursday, February 7. The winner in this contest is NOT the person who can write the most words in 15 minutes. Everyone who submits their name and a word count in the comments will be entered in drawing and selected at random by Random.org.
The winner will be posted on Friday morning.
