The Write More For Four Challenge is about trying to get more words on the page than you normally do in a four-week period.
The Current WriMoFoFo
Next challenge is on for 2013, starting 24th August.
How Does it Work?
You can set yourself whatever word-count goal you like, but a goal of 20,000 words (under 700 words a day) strikes the right balance of achievable and challenging for most people. Those might be edited words or new words, and on just one or on many projects – completely up to you, though I do recommend having an idea what you want to work on before the WriMoFoFo kicks off.
Edits and Word Counts
If you’re editing during the challenge, a way to simplify counting words is to take a 20,000 word chunk and treat that as your word count regardless of whether it ends up longer or shorter after the edits.
Most importantly, just use a method that works for you.
Announcing your progress to the world!
If you’d like to make a public statement of the % of your goal completed each week, then feel free to post them using the Comments on this page – use an alias if you prefer.
Suggestion for aliases: your favourite character from fiction (book or on-screen).
Good Luck and Keep Writing!
