We are a group of writers aiming for large word counts in the year 2016. It’s often too easy to let writing fall to the side, and to later regret the words we never wrote. We offer seven challenging pledge levels for those who are serious about increasing their numbers over the year.
Membership is closed for 2016. If you are interested in joining, please look for open sign-ups in December 2016.
2016 Pledge Levels
…I discovered that, while 5000 words (or whatever number) seems like a huge amount, the counts add up fast, especially if I don’t stress over the total and just go with the flow. I feel as if once I started challenging myself, the feeling just stayed there. Instead of feeling irritated that I have to write every day, I feel annoyed when something prevents me from writing every day. Best of all, I’d gotten back into writing via fanfiction, but I’m starting to feel the pull to get back to my original stuff, which was my goal all along.
I will be joining you guys again next year as I’ve written more words this year that I ever dreamed possible and I hope to finish this year with 250,000 words!
I love and am so grateful for this community. At the March check-in I was thinking about giving up for the first time in my GYWO history and thanks to the support and encouragement I found here, I wrote 47,000 words in April and more than doubled my word count for the year.
