The Epic Chat Word War


On the 25th and 26th of July, 2009, the JulNoWriMo chat will turn its eyes to a single goal, the accumulation of words. At 2 pm Eastern on each of those days, the chat will start a one hour word war. Anyone who wants to can join, and we will have a massive glorious hour of adding to our word counts. You can be as competitive as you want, and we will compare at the end. Come join, one and all.

Even if you aren't going to do the war, feel free to come and hang out in the chat. You can do your own, smaller wars, or just talk. But for those of you who want to, come join the war!

Post if you're going to be there please, so we can get an idea. But also feel free to just show up.

See you there!

EDIT: Anyone unfamiliar with word wars, see Pen.To.Paper's post (two down)

Because I was in on this in the chat, I suppose I am still in on this, at least one of the days.


If I wake up.

I shall participate! Definitely in the first one, possibly in both.

And also, for those of you who don't know what a word war is, here is a brief summary. Basically, anyone who joins starts writing at the same time time (in this case 2pm) and continues to write for an allotted amount of time (in this case 1 hour). At the end all participants compare the amount of words they wrote. The winner is the person who wrote the most words and they get the wonderful prize of saying they won!

'Tis wonderful fun and helps with the word count, and anyone who hasn't done one before should join this one, and possibly others, too!

I look forward to it and hope to see you all there.

Nice to see people showing up. To point out, you could treat this no different than any other hour of writing. This is just a way to say "I'm going to write for an hour!" and see what you get done. If that helps anyone decide to do it, I'm glad.

However, if you want to try to get the highest count in that hour, you can do that too. We welcome competition.

And yes, I'll be there too. (Excepting extreme circumstances beyond my control)

I won't be in the chat, but I would like to take part both days (I'm in the UK, so that'll be 7pm to 8pm for me). Would it be okay to just post my word count for the war in this thread? :)

Sure. I was planning on posting all the counts for people here anyway, after Saturday at least. Someone else will do it on Sunday.

For everyone else, the same applies. Feel free to join the chat if you want (we don't bite... much;)) but if you would rather just write on your own and post the count here, that's fine too. This is just a challenge to write, not some formal thing. Think of it as a WriDay, just condensed, and somewhat competitive. *realizes that's not much simpler*

I'm in, both days =D I love hour long word wars, even though I do write complete drivel.

With a bit of luck my wrist will have calmed down by then, it was playing up earlier and I haven't really written since.

I managed 2,038. I spent the first fifteen minutes of the word war in the shower. :embarrassed:

I'll try for tomorrows (todays?) if I can think of what to write. I want to try to finish tomorrow but have no clue what to write and usually write much later, but oh well. ^.^

In bath for the start of it, and then my wrist is kind of bruised up (think I hit it off of something during the night - as it's like, right on top of the bone) - so I'm not taking part. Don't think my wrist could take this, and then the Sunday Word War with the wriye folks in such a short time frame.


Good luck everyone else. :)

Well, the 26th was not quite so exciting, but we still had fun. Quite a few people didn't show up, so if you wrote elsewhere let me know and I'll include your count.

But the standings:

LunaKlipps (Luna) - 2780
Nightsong - 1666
jtptan - 1463
Trethsparr - 1250

Congratulations to our victor, LunaKlipps! And to all our participants.

If I missed anyone, again, please let me know. This was a fun diversion though, and hopefully we helped some people churn out more words. I have heard great successes from those in the chat, and hopefully this tradition can continue.

Good warring all, and good luck with the rest of the month.

Thanks Nightsong! It was really fun and the most I've ever written in one sit down probably ever. Now I'm almost 3k closer to getting a little trophy thing and a full green bar! Can't wait!

Good job to everyone, and good luck to try and finish!
