Please join us for Write Up a Storm II tomorrow (October 12th)!
We’re writing up a storm from 4:00 a.m. to midnight PDT.
Twenty hours (almost) of opportunities to connect with others, meet goals, and get your words “on paper.” If you haven’t signed up, do it now! Just click any link in this post or the graphic above.
We’ll be writing from the top of every hour for fifty minutes. In the interest of health, we’ve planned a ten minute break at the end of every hour for walking around and other physical necessities. (If you need to work on a different schedule, say around breaks and lunch at work, that’s fine. Keep track of your progress and, when you get a chance, let us know how you’re doing.)
During that ten-minute break, you’re welcome to post your word or page counts and anything else in the comment section here at the blog or on our Facebook Event page. We’ll tally numbers and post them as often as we’re able. End of the day tally will be here by Tuesday.
We’re hoping for at least a novel’s worth of combined word count.
You can commit to hours or only a fifteen minute block of writing time. Just follow through on your goal. That’s how you finish a book. And today is a chance to make headway on finishing your book. As Laura Drake says, “You can’t sell a book if you haven’t finished one.”
Here’s your dance card:
Laura Drake will start the party from 4-8 am. The coffee will be flowing.
Orly Konig-Lopez will be onboard from 8 am to noon. (And yes, more coffee!)
Jenny Hansen will be playing Eighties flashback videos at the top of each hour from 12-4 pm.
Fae Rowen is taking the evening drive time from 4-9 pm.
Jenny Hansen is running the Night Owl party from 9 pm to midnight.
So let’s support each other and make this fun. Writing is, by nature, a solitary endeavor. That doesn’t mean you have to feel alone. Join us. Tomorrow’s the day.

We’re looking forward to hearing about your experiences in the comments!
