Join us for a Word Sprint this evening!

Join us today, Thursday February 20 and tomorrow at 5:00 PM EST for an hour of writing and revising!

New to Word Sprints? Here's how it works:

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 the images below for the books you can win this month!). To qualify, your tweet or status update must mention the YA Buccaneers and include the hashtag #YABWordSprint. Use the Rafflecopter form to enter.
