Declare war on yourself!


There is a thread for word sprints/wars, but that specifically mentioned doing that with other people, so I felt this didn't apply.

This thread is simple: You pick a length of time, no matter how short or long, challenge yourself to write a certain amount, and write as much as you can within that period of time. Then you come back and edit your post to say how many words you actually wrote.

It's not quite midnight where I am (a bit more than 2 hours) but I will definitely be doing these when I can. An example might look like this:

Start: 12:00
End: 12:20
Goal: 800
Actual: 757

These helped me more than I can say in the last few WriMos. I hope they help other people, but even if they don't, this thread will be filled with my posts :D

This reminds me of Write Or Die, which is an amazing method.
I was left completely blank, but the self imposed deadline made me write SOMETHING, and it turned out to be a great starting point for my story.

Thank God for Write or Die. Without it I'd be... dead. Will declare that THIS IS SPARTA later today, time to go to sleep after writing all night. ^^ Good luck, everyone!

I concur. For me, it's a last ditch effort to get myself writing again, but it's never failed me. At least, not yet.....:confused:

If I don't kick my butt I'm just going to sit around moping all day. Writing will at least distract me from feeling down for a while.

Time: 20 minutes (:21 - :41)
Goal: 1000 words
Edit: 1150
I answered a text in the middle too. I seem to be doing fairly well.
