Get Your (Word) Sprint on!


Need motivation to write? Join us tonight for a Word Sprint! It's from 8 to 9pm EDT (5 to 6pm PST); that's one hour of non-stop writing.

How many words can you write in one hour? Join us tonight and find out!

What's a Word Sprint? 

For one hour, we'll write as much as we can, then check back in on Twitter to see how we've all done. Cheer on others if you can't fit in an hour of writing, or pop in for a few minutes and see how much you can get done. It doesn't matter what you work on---blog posts, novels, poetry, shopping lists. Just write!

How do I join?

Follow the YA Buccaneers on Twitter and let us know you'll be joining us in the comments below. 

Before you start writing, share a tweet, and be sure to mention YA Buccaneers and the hashtag #YABwordsprint so we can connect with you.

At the end of the Word Sprint, share your status. It's that easy! 

What if I'm late, or need to leave early? 

Don't worry, we're not going to be upset if you can't stay the whole hour. Just be sure to let us know if you start late, or have to leave before the hour's up with a status update. As long as you "try", it still counts, and we'll be thrilled that you took part!
