What is a Word War?

If you're doing NaNo and feeling behind, Word Wars are one of your best tools to increase your word count in a flash.

The goal of a word war is to compete to see who among a group of writers can write the most words in a set amount of time. My favorite length of time to war is 15 minutes, but I've seen people war for as short as five minutes and as long as a whole hour.

Do any of you participate in Word Wars? How do you stay motivated to write?

If you're ever looking for a word war buddy, just let me know! I hang out on the NaNoWriMo site frequently in the evenings (ET).


  1. I just sit down and write. It works every time for me.

    Hey i saw u on Nanowrimo so i thought i would just give a fellow writer some support.

    1. Thanks! I really do appreciate it!

      I think sitting down and starting to write is certainly one of the best ways to stay motivated; the hardest part is my first time writing during the day.

  2. If you have a cup of tea or coffee it helps a lot. But writing in the morning seems easy its just the getting everything done enough so that you can write. That's the trouble.
