Word War Tonight

First Word War tonight!  Starting at 8:00 EST and running until 9:00 EST we try to get as many points as possible.  Whoever wins and gets the most points within the hour will get their name, the name of their novel, and their word count for that hour posted in the Word War Archives page.  I'm not sure if that's exactly an honor, but it is a fun way to keep up with the top typers.  So, in the comments, state the chapter or the novel your working on and the current word count before this Word War.
Chapter 7,
Upgrades,
Current Word Count: Zero

Also, I just recently finished the Isle of Swords by Wayne Thomas Batson, and I will be posting my review on that in a few days.

I literally have no idea what I will be writing, except that it is going to be a part of Don't Kill the Good Doctor. My current word count is . . . um, a sad little 5752. I hope that will change quickly :)

Barie-ah Hue-en-la said...

Work on any of your writing projects. It doesn't matter. I'm working on a short story.

Gwendolyn said...

Have some envelope addressing to do, so I'll be starting late.

Out of the Shadowlands : 4602

Seth said...

Out of the Shadowlands? Sounds like an AWESOME book. Sorry I was writing, and yeah, any writing project, novella, novel, poetry I guess(though it's never been done) Word Wars are just a fun way to get yourself writing. *goes back to writing*

Jacob R Parker said...

Hey, pleasure warring with everyone. :) I got a bit of editing done.

Seth said...

The same to you. Wow! I got 1026 words. How'd y'all do?

Barie-ah Hue-en-la said...

No! Not nine o'clock already! I was on a roll! Well, not really. But I was almost writing fast!

Begining word count:5752
End word count: 6588
Words written: 836
Not bad for my second word war ever I suppose.

EaglesWings said...

776 words written
1169 words total

Gwendolyn said...

Not done already?! I'm continuing on anyway. :-)

Current word count : 5181
Progress made : 650

Usually I can get up to 1700 words in an hour, but seeing as I started close to 8:40....

Seth said...

Wow! 650 in like 20 minutes?! That's awesome.

EaglesWings said...

WOW that tis fast! Much better than my usual 250 in in 15 min

Barie-ah Hue-en-la said...

I'm such a slow writer . . . you all are awesome :) Do you have an auto-write setting on your computers or something? lol

Seth said...

No but that'd make writing a whole lot easier lol

I got about 513 words in 18 or so minutes. :) That was, of course, without proper editing and contemplation of "just the right word", etc, etc. -whisper

Seth said...
