 First order of business...

HAPPY PI DAY! :D


Second order of business...

I'm going to try and do my own little word war game that people were at least receptive enough to do once. 

It's pretty much like your basic word war, but this is longer and there is a punishment for not finishing it. (Punishment optional.)

Length: 1 Week. 14th - 21st

Quota: You choose your own quota. Though being that this is a week long, I would prefer that these all be at least 5k, but if length isn't your style, then do what you think you can do in a week.

 Punishment: Your punishment is tailor made to you. If you don't make your quota, then you pick what motivates you most. It might be not reading fanfiction for a day, not watching tv for a day, or it could even be that you have to work out for 30 minutes for a certain period of days. Whatever you want to do.

NOTE: Punishment optional, you don't HAVE to have a punishment, I just find it to be a good motivator for me. It acts like a deadline for me when I can't seem to get my arse in gear.

Example: I want to write a minimum of 10k  and if I don't get it done then I am not allowed to read fanfiction for two days. (Trust me, this is killer when you have a desk job at work and free time on your hands.)

So, if you want to participate then please comment before with your quota, punishment, and your starting word count. Then at the end of a week come back and reply to your original post with your end word count. 

For those of you doing the WW for [livejournal.com profile] hd_writers this weekend, that post count DOES count toward this one. Just in case some of you wondered.

Good luck. <3

I want to play! It will go well with the word war this weekend! However I don't do negative reinforcement. Can I just make it a personal challenge and skip the punishment?

If that's ok, I'll aim for 15k - which is pretty hefty and a bit worrisome. But I'm hoping I will do really well in this weekend's word war and the week before hand will get me really revved up! :)


Ok? y/n?

Lol, sure. I just need something to motivate me when I'm on my own. So the punishment acts like a deadline for me.

Go Team Kitty!

Are we still having the ww? Do people even remember it since hd2o is kaput?

That is on my list for today! To get the comm back up and remind everyone about the war and the upcoming GSD!

*signs up*

Quota for me is 8k but I'm thinking I'm gonna write more than that anyways, so... eh.

Word count for me is 14821.

Punishment? LOL NO CHATZY FOR A DAY OR UNTIL I REACH 10K FOR FAILING TO REACH THE ORIGINAL GOAL! (this does not include skype. :P)

I'm late, because i have been internet-light since last Friday, but i want to plaaaay!

My aim is 3-5k... of a possible two fics. Current word count is ZERO. I do hope i manage more, though, tbh.

My punishment will be... no fic reading until i reach 5k. (This is subject to change if i can think of something more motivating...)

YAY! *writes fic*

That's a good one. :) It's like mine. Which... I haven't yet written here. FAIL.

I can't even write out my participation. I'm screwed.

But yeah, mine is being unable to read fics until a certain time.

-Is reading a fic right now- Faaail. XD

I just finished Sleepless, and now i am watching a (very long) interview with DanRad on youtube.

I will not get trapped on youtube, i will not get trapped on youtube, i will not get trapped on youtube... (If i repeat it enough times, it will come true.)

Deadline for work or fic? I'm just chuffed i've actually started my smoochfest!fic with a month and a half to go until the deadline! *is proud of self* My word count has only gone up by 6 in the past 11 minutes, but that 11 minutes was spent doing research, so i feel vindicated.

Date: 2011-03-16 05:17 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile] snugglemint.livejournal.com
Both. But work is the more immediate of the deadlines.

I've got... a month to do my Beltane fic, and that less than a month to do my mpreg fic after that.

And then a 20k auction fic for save the hex and so far a 10k auction fic for help_japan.

-Wondering why she offered a k per USD- Heh. Rawr.

And I'm just chuffed that I know what chuffed means. -Devastatingly American-

YAY FOR RESEARCH AND SIX WORDS! :D!

Pfft, work always gets in the way and spoils the fun. I have this week off, and am making the most of it. I dread to think what the admin room at work will look like by Monday :\

I have a(n at least) 5k fic to do for save the hex, but that's on hold until i finish my smoochfest!fic. After that i'm fair game and bunnies can invade my brain (not that they're not doing that everyday, anyway... but maybe i'll pay them a little more attention).

LOL, is 'chuffed' that much of a British word? What about 'knackered'? I'm pretty oblivious as to which are British words... they're all just words to me!

DUDE, i never replied with my end word count. LOL. I passed, anyway... 5754 words written in that week for one fic. I got no punishment, yay!!

I recently set myself the task of writing 1k of fic a day until it's finished, but on Wednesday i wrote nothing, and i blame it all on chatzy. So until i make up that 1k, i have banned myself from chatzy. Harsh, but i think fair.

No one came back and wrote. Not even me. XD

I wrote 9k. So I made my goal. -Wiggles- Almost 10k.

I didn't write anything yesterday either. ._. But I wrote 1k on Tuesday!

I need to set the goal of 1k a day. I need to finish a oneshot I started and then I need to be full speed ahead for my Beltane fic.

It'd be amazing if I could force myself to write 5k a day for [livejournal.com profile] hd_writers gsd_rtfn week.

35k That's my beltane fic. -Wiggles- And maybe the start of my second fest.

5k I'm hoping for 10, but I don't want to put myself in a hard place right off the bat.

My punishment is no fic reading until I meet the 5k requirement. And my word count up to 5k, should I fail, does not count toward next week's game.
