Get Your Words On!! Join Us For Word Sprints This Week!

If you're like us, you made all sorts of resolutions at the start of the New Year. One of those was to make your writing a priority, wasn't it? How's that coming along? 

Don't worry, you're not alone. Making time for writing is tough. It helps to have someone in your corner cheering you along. That's why we've got several back-to-back Word Sprints this week!!

  • Today- Jan. 21st- 4pm EST
  • Jan. 22nd- 8pm EST
  • Jan. 23rd- 6pm EST

What's a Word Sprint?

During a Word Sprint, write as much as you can for one hour, then check in on Twitter to cheer on other writers and share how you did. You can write anything - poems, blog posts, novels - you name it.

How do I join?

Follow the YA Buccaneers on Twitter and let us know you'll be joining us in the comment below. Before you start writing, share a tweet or Facebook status update with your intention - your writing goal, what you're working on, whatever you like - 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.

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

Start when you can, stop if you need to. For those who do start late or leave early, make sure to share a tweet or status update to let us know. As long as you *try* to write something during that time, it still counts!

How do I earn giveaway entries?

Share a link to the tweet with your final word count in the Word Sprint blog post, and you'll earn an entry for this month's giveaway (see our Treasure Chest for why that's a good thing). To qualify, your tweet or status update must mention the YA Buccaneers and include the hashtag #YABWordSprint. Use the Rafflecopter form to enter.
