1K 1H Challenge
This morning I participated in a 1K1H challenge on Twitter with a couple of other writers. (1K1H = 1000 words in 1 hour) I’ve done 10K in a week challenges, National Novel Writing Month’s 50K in a month, but I cannot remember every doing one in an hour. I REALLY enjoyed it!
I ended up with 1919K, and the other writers who participated also wrote over 1K in that hour of time. I was motivated to write because others were writing at the same time–and I didn’t want to be the one who came back with low numbers either… lol. I admit the challenge spurred my fingers and my muse!
Have you ever participated in a 1K1H challenge?
Here is what I propose: If you are up to it! Today at 1PM EST, I am going to do a 1K1H challenge here on Happy Endings. We will keep track in the comments section, and I will post a big “GO”. When 1 hour has passed, I will write, “STOP”
In that one hour, sit your but down at the computer and WRITE. If you can’t do the whole hour start with us, and leave a comment when you had to stop, but at least WRITE.
To prepare, make sure you have your document up. Know what scene you want to work on. Have all your notes, resources, etc… ready, so you don’t have to stop to find something — or do what I do — I put in () what I need to find later and highlight it, so I don’t have to stop writing.
Let’s see if we can’t bust out a ton of words together!
See you at 1pm EST.
