Just a little over a year ago, the awesome Nicky Stephens wrote a guest post for us on her latest word sprinting feat, the #10KWritAThon. The #10KWritAThon, as the name suggests, is a writing marathon and word sprinting event on Twitter in which the goal is to write 10,000 words over the course of a day. Since then, writers across Twitter have picked up on the challenge, hosting some of their own and gathering fellow word sprinting fiends to partake with them (we hear Get Wordies is going to be hosting a few for Camp NaNoWriMo and regular NaNoWriMo this year, and you can find the schedule here).
On Sunday, March 1st, we’re kicking the month off with a #10KWritAThon of our own! Join us for a day of word sprinting and crank out your own 10,000 words, or write what you can. We’ll have a bunch of goodies to inspire and motivate you, including writing prompts, competitive wordscrims, and maybe even some cute pictures of baby animals as rewards for your word sprinting prowess.
We’ll develop a full schedule as the date draws closer and will update this post with information, so check back soon! Full details will also be posted to our Upcoming Sprints page. To prepare, check out our own Faye Kirwin’s article on InfoBarrel, How To: Write 10,000 Words In A Day!
Happy writing, and see you March 1st!
