WriDay


I know this is really short notice, but I was looking back through my old posts in my writing community on Livejournal and I saw all the posts I had made from my semi-WriDay back in January to kick off WriYe. I did 30,333 in one day and stopped to play Final Fantasy XII for three hours in the middle of it.

But, that was a giant boost to my word count and it was fun sitting in a chat room for like 24 hours with other crazies... and I was wondering if maybe you guys would like to do it with me? I can do it either Tuesday or Saturday of this week...

Any takers?

50k in one day. Even if you don't make it, you'll get a mega word count boost! :D

Eh, I don't know. It's not something I'd want to do to a proper story, but if I'm in the mood I might do it with another since I haven't done one since October (got the 50k then though).

I'll do it! Saturday is probably the day where I'll have the most time available on the computer, but I can do it Tuesday if it's more comfortable for other people (although I'll have school and all). My poor Muse :D

Saturday might just work, although my writing computer is not connected to the internet. Thus, no crazy-fun chatting with you all. Still, I might give it a go :D

I'll need it too. I'm going away from all things electronic now with a piece of paper and a black pen and I'm planning.

Then, I'll be ready to jump in on Saturday...

Yeah, it sounds AWESOME but i know from attempting Mad Challenge (10k in 5 hours) that I just can't A; type that fast and B; stay concentrated on my novel for that long. But I'll be writing on Saturday and encourage you with pompoms and imaginary coffee and tea!

Some say in ice.
From what I\'ve tasted of desire,

But if it had to perish twice,
I think that for destruction ice,
Is also great
And would suffice.

I'll be in the chat rooms for a few hours but only for a few hours as most of my writing will be done at home (No Internet). I'll come up for air and food.

I'll report back after 1 pm on Sunday.

Hmm...in a way, I would like to have a go at this, 'cause it's just one of those insane writing experiences, but then again, I don't know. I start school soon after that and kind of need to continue to catch up on sleep, which I have lacked a lot lately... x]

I'll have a think about it though...only thing is, I don't know if my story will still actually be going in 50k's time, aha. XD

What is the chat going to be? (please not the one on here, I can't use it :/)

I guess I will, heh, but only if I finish before the NASCAR race (at 8pm or something) because every time I've done this it's ending up being during a race, and I'm sick of that.

Advice to anyone who hasn't done this before:
- You can't sleep until you're done. Period.
- Put food and drinks within arm's reach beforehand.
- Go somewhere no can interrupt you, not once, at least for the first 10 hours or so.
- Try to do 3k+/hour for as long as you can, no matter how ahead you are. If you're not ahead at noon you'll probably feel like just dying (at least in my experience :X).

Overall it's much more about willpower than writing - you'll probably write some really good parts and it might be generally coherent, but you're focusing on not-stopping, rather than writing well. I actually view this as much more of the 'mad dash to the finish line/quantity over quality' thing than Nanowrimo. And I wouldn't view this as 'writing as much as I can in one day' - when I do that, I usually top off under 20k. This is a different mentality.

K, now that I've talked myself into doing this, I have to find a plot. Yay.

I can chat in both IRC and on AIM. I'll be in both the IRC chat and the AIM chat [julnobuddies] for wars and general conversations. I can also do MSN and yahoo, but I prefer not to. Let me know if I need to be on either one, though. :] Trillian is a wonderful, wonderful client for WriMo time.

[btw, I'm Erin on IRC and tengo un nombre on AIM.]

You can find the chat by going to the top of the page by clicking "Chat Room."

If none of us are there, or none of us are talking, we're all probably in the NaNoWriMo room which you can find by typing "/join #nanowrimo" or if you have your own IRC Client you probably know what to do (although sometimes #nanowrimo does not show up on the channel list)

BattleJesus will be happy to get so much use!
