We're Sprinting Again!


Looking for motivation to write? Join us tonight and tomorrow for two nights of Word Sprints! They both run from 8 to 9pm EDT (5 to 6pm PST), with one hour of non-stop writing each night.

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 or Facebook to see how we've all done. Cheer on others if you can't fit in an hour of writing, or pop in for just 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 or Facebook and let us know you'll be joining us in the comments below. 

Before you start writing, share a tweet or Facebook status update, 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! 

Grab a giveaway entry! 

Share a link to the tweet or Facebook status update with your final wordcount and you'll earn an entry for this month's giveaway!  (See our Treasure Chest for all the loot!)  To qualify, your tweet or status update MUST mention the YA Buccaneers and include the hashtag #YABwordsprint.
