5 Hour, 10,000 Words Challenge


The challenge is to write 10,000 words in five hours. Regardless of whether you make the 10,000, it'll be a lot of fun and will give you a chance to improve your word count.

All you have to do is post your starting time and at the end of the five hours post your finishing time and your total word count for the five hours. You can also participate in this challenge as many times as you'd like.

How late is 2:00? Here we already passed it. It's 15:06.
I'd like to join. Probably fail miserably, but it might give me a push.

You can start anytime you'd like! I just posted that as my starting time, sorry for the confusion! '

It doesn't matter whether you win or lose anyway, at least you'll get some words down! Besides, I haven't made much progress so far, so I wouldn't worry! :) (Then again I'm only 15 minutes in..)

EDIT: And 35 minutes in I decided not to do it anymore.

I'd like to give it a try, but 5 hours of spare time is a bit hard to find at the moment. Maybe I'll try it on friday. Otherwise it won't happen before next tuesday. But I am going to try!

Okay! I'll take some time off first, for I'm a little stuck on both my stories. I'll watch some tv and maybe it comes back to me. Then I'll join in =)

Extra time is so hard to find this month but I do want to give this a try, at least once for this JulNo. I'm really going to have to plan well for it. Thanks for the idea though!

Well, it looks like I might be the first one doing this, then! I am unemployed, not taking summer classes, and at the moment I have nothing planned for the day, so I've got free time galore.

I will start at 1 (my time - so about 10 minutes) and go until 6 pm.

I will aim for 10,000 words; my starting word count is 20,022, so I will want to have 30,022.

I might fail, but it will be fun, regardless.

Edited, changing time from 1:10 to 1. I had to clean but it took shorter than I thought.

G'luck, rebeldork! (^^)

I might try this tomorrow. I just reset my word count/switched to a different project so I need to catch up (not that I had much before). :)

Thank you!

I will try to keep everyone updated, though I'll be careful not to spam. One minute... the countdown begins!

Edit 1: It's 22 minutes in and I have 1217 words... 12% done!
Edit 2: Passed 2k now (48 min)
Edit 3: Passed 3000 words (1 hour 14 min)


Actually I probably am not going to finish... My boyfriend wants to hang out, and since I have already hit more than twice the daily word count, I don't feel guilty saying yes. :)

I'm going to keep writing until I've got to go, however.

Yeah, I did fail. I got less than 4000 words. However, I DID get almost 4000 words I wouldn't have otherwise :D

And I might try this again tomorrow morning/early afternoon.

I do want to try to hit 30,000 today anyways (to get the 10k in one day, rather than 5 hours) but I don't know if that will happen.

I tried this, but I broke it down: it works out to 1k every half hour, so I set specific alarms, and I came really close the first half hour, but by the third I was getting interrupted too much so I kind of gave up.

But I did get quite a lot done, and in writing so much I worked out of my plot hole, so thanks for the idea; if I hadn't tried that, I don't think I would've been able to power through it without the motivation :D

This sounds like a great idea. Five hours straight though? I checked in here too late, Yesterday (Saturday) would have been the perfect time to go for a straight 5 hour stretch if I had known. Today (Sunday) I'm not so sure, I can try to fit in two hours, but I will try for Monday or, better yet Wednesday.

I'm on holidays, but funny how you get busy with holiday stuff, and here I had planned to spend most of my holidays writing just for JulNo. I'll squeeze in whatever time I have.

Free time is hard to find lately but I think I might try for it soon. (I know I won't make it since I just can't type that fast but it'll still be fun ^^) I'll probably start around midnight or 1 my time and go until 5 or 6 depending on start time. Wish me luck~!
