A new love
On Twitter of all places.
The gist of it is: You are shooting to write one thousand words in one hour. And the more of your twitter friends you get to jump in with you and write, the better.
Last week, Katie G. and I played #1k1hr three days in a row, and I wrote more than 6500 words. Lots of fun is to be had as we check in and mark our progress. We encourage, chide, kid, and snipe at each other.
Katie described it as Ritalin for her writing brain. The short time and the friendly competition means it is easier to focus. She is so right!
Hopefully, I will get to play in the afternoons this week. I would love it if the word meter jumped up to about 32K words this week.
Have you tried #1k1hr?
