The 10K Weekend Challenge!

Recommended Posts

*drumroll* It's Fri-YAY!  :bouncing:

Weekends are awesome! (Unless you work weekends, in which case you have my sympathies entirely!) In the humdrum of the Monday to Friday nine to five, work or school can be a real pain when it comes to finding time to write, and getting that word count up, which brings us to...

THE 10K WEEKEND CHALLENGE!!!

Originally posted a few NaNos ago by our dear Tammi (WalkingDredd) the goal of this challenge is very simple: to write ten thousand words in 72 hours.

I'm sure none of us would turn down lazy Sundays underneath our duvets, so this is the perfect excuse to do just that while tapping away at our keyboards and seeing that word count rise as we kill our characters off! :D (Or is that just me...? :/)

All you need to do is post in this thread with your starting word count, using the form below. Take the weekend to write, and come back 72 hours later (Monday - or Tuesday if it's already Saturday where you are. Sorry I'm late, Australasia!) with an ending word count. Those of us who are rebelling or have manic schedules this weekend can aim for smaller word goals, which is completely okay, because every word written is a word you didn't have before!

Let's get ahead on our word counts before real life starts to kick in (Thanksgiving, work, school, shopping for the unmentionable C, etc) and get NaNoWriMo 2017 off to an awesome start! :excited:

If I can do this, I'll only be 4k away from my goal in one weekend, so why not? :P

I use Pacemaker for my NaNo schedule, and it pretty much has me writing 10k this weekend anyway, so I might as well give this a go! However, I work on Sunday, so I am a bit skeptical. We'll see...

I have been derailed by feeling sick today, so I'm adjusting my "big" goal to be 4000 new words by bedtime on Sunday.
