1. You may start writing now, as long as you write a total of 50,000 words during the month of July. The words you write in June do not count.

2. You don't post your story. Beginning in July, you'll be able to enter your word count in your user profile. This site runs on the honor system.

3. You may use any program you like. Many word processors have a word count feature that will tell you how many words you've written.

There is no winning prize other than the 50,000 word novel you may print out and share with your friends. :D

Yes, you *can* cheat if you really want to. Hopefully you have enough personal integrity not to. We're all on the honor system here.
And the way "winners" work is that you can update your word count any time you want to after July 1st. Over on the main page, there is a list of everybody who is signed up, and their word count. The list automatically updates as you update your word count. So as soon as you type in 50,000 in your word count on your profile, the list will update you as having over 50,000 (last year your name "bolded", I believe, once you passed that point).
Edit: Oh and the list of participants and their word count is under "statistics" on the main page.

Sure, people can cheat if they want to. The only person it really affects is them--it's not like they'd get anything out of cheating, except maybe a certificate that they could print out.

The real point of this is to get a story written, isn't it? Cheating would be a bit pointless.

But hey, if you get immense satisfaction from lying for no particular reason, I'm sure that the print-out certificates are really nice. ;)

There *may* be. Nothing spectacular, but I usually try to at least get something around for all the winners. :)
