Not to get all woo-woo mystical, but sometimes the Universe just gives you what you need. Last week I was lamenting the fact that I was trying new words for the first time in FOREVER & I was struggling.
Not even twenty-four hours later, some writer buds tweeted that they were going to do a week long Fast Draft. The rules were just balls to the wall word count harvesting for a week. Those of us who could would try to avoid any editing. And there was the push I needed.
I joined up and the #HaulAssDraft hashtag was born (because I never pass up a chance to swear!) and you can search that on twitter to see how the competition is doing. So far I’ve done 6,588 words since Thursday night, which is more than I’ve done all year on my own. I will definitely be doing this again.
I’m not sure what the winner gets, but I do know that the loser has to tweet that she’s a dirty, filthy Charlie Sheen lover. *shudder*
Down with ego-maniacal celebs and up with wordcount!
