During our first event on April 20th, we wrote a whole book! The final word count for our first Write Up a Storm was 79,591 words.
We promised a follow-up event, and it's coming up just in time to jump start your engines for NaNoWriMo. Writers in the Storm is holding another "Write Up a Storm" event on Monday, October 12. It happens to be Columbus Day, so perhaps you'll even have the day off!
Held on our Facebook page, Write Up A Storm is a one-day sprint-writing bash, designed to motivate and sustain your writing throughout the day. Even if that day job impinges on your time, you can participate before work, during lunch and after hours.
To register: https://www.facebook.com/events/1679032802316238/
Every one of us will be there with you - here at the blog and over at the Facebook event page. Writing. Piling up word count. Supporting each other.
We'll be writing all day and keeping track of word count totals. You can post your word count in a comments for that Monday post, or at the end of every hour if you want to encourage others--or challenge them.
Here's a short list of simple things you can do to prepare for Write Up A Storm:
Are you willing to commit to writing on Monday, October 12? Are you willing to share your word count? How about sharing a tip to help all of us get ready?

I am so there.
Awesome, Lyn!! We can't wait - we had so much fun.
Cannot wait! This was rocket fuel to my writing, last year!
I know! I was so inspired. It was amazing to see people break through the hurdles they'd been having. And me and my night owls kind of went insane. 🙂
I think I need this - so I'm giving it a try in spite of my very full Mondays. I think it will help me get through the day, too!
Awesome, Janet! Give us your lunch hour, or an hour before you go to bed. We promise it is super-fun. 🙂
Hey, Jenny ... this might be something I can do ... even though this year I'll be in the middle of a job-job 🙂 One question: Can I jump start after midnight that Sunday? I have truly weird hours. Oh and yes, I am so glad to be back with WITS after my long-winded break 🙂
We love seeing you back here, Florence! You write whenever it works for you that day. Just pop over to the Facebook page and give us your total. WOOO!!!
This sounds great! My work schedule isn't up past this week, but I hope I am off that day!
I hope you are too, Laura!! We have so much fun. Writing sprints and dance breaks...all day long. 🙂
I am committed. I am in the midst of a juicy novel and this will help me keep moving through it. 75K here I come.
Wooo-hoooo! I hope we are the pivotal words on your end stretch. 🙂
I'm sorry I missed the last one. Hopefully there should be good turnout. Count me in! 🙂
Seriously, Karen. It's such a fun time. I'm glad you're going to attend!
