This is the official word war post. [livejournal.com profile] khasael and I have just finished our first round, and we'll be playing again throughout the evening. [livejournal.com profile] vaysh11 and I have plans for tomorrow from noon to 4 GMT (7 - 11 a.m. Chicago time). Basically, I'll be doing this most of the rest of the weekend. If you want to join in on the fun at any time, leave a comment here :)

*Edit: word wars is when two or more people get together and write for a specified amount of time. Whoever writes the most during that time wins the round.


My progress:



5029 / 20000 words. 25% done!

Not sure what you're confused about, babe. This post is for word wars. If anyone wants to play, they can let me know here. I'll also be posting the results of all the rounds in comments.

We get together and set a time limit (khas an I did it for an hour just now), and then we write as much as we can during that time. When time is called, we give our wordcounts. Highest wordcount wins.

Ugh. You can see my productivity fall. *dives back in for her own personal round 4, since everyone else is in bed* Good luck tomorrow! Maybe we can play again! I have 24 hours to finish this fic, and I'm only a third done.

Wow! Your word count sure has gone up over the night! :) Is this your Travel Fair fic?

We are on in a little less than two hours! *huggles*

Waaah. COFFEE.

Yes, it's my Travel Fair. Love the prompt, but it's difficult.

Khasael and I used a chat room in chatzy to do this. Do you want me to send you an invite, or did you have something else in mind?

I'm not on chatzy, only gmail or aim. I was thinking we just type away, no?

You don't need have an account for anything. It's just that it's real time and makes it easier to make sure we start/stop at the same time. But we can just start NOW.

oh, i'll check it out. But only after our little war of words. I posted that my LJ that I started writing at 2pm, and I've only made tea. ;)

Date: 2010-08-29 12:17 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile] vaysh11.livejournal.com
Yes, four hours. We'll stop at 18 Uhr. Does that sound good?

So I couldn't resist and found Chatzy. It looks very easy and cute. If you want, do send me an invite. My email is vaysh11@gmail.com. ♥
