    I'll be around for some Word Wars if anyone wants to join me.
    Lady Sparkles, SparklePony, The SparklePony of DOOOOOM, Sparkles, Sparkles McModderson, The Sparkler, Sparklegee, The Sparkling Portuguee... I think I see a pattern here. Oh, and Horny McPoarny.

    So, this thread hasn't been active forever, but I thought I would see if there were any takers. I always write better with a deadline and I learned to love word wars during NaNoWriMo.

    Anyone out there interested in a few wars today?

    Sure. Why not? I'm interested. Do you have a particular time or anything?

    It's been 30 minutes for me. I got 159 words in. I kind of hit a road block for a minute. Haha.

    150 more words than you had before!

    I used writeordie.com as I haven't been BIC in quite sometime. It is a great motivator. Just over 700.

    Thanks for warring with me! I need to take a quick shower but I would be up for more later today if you are!

    I used to try to write on 750words.com every day. For those that don't know, it's a site that encourages daily writing. The participants strive to write at least 750 words. After you submit your writing, you will see how many times certain words were used, as well as your speed.

    One day, I decided to try to write 750 words as quickly as possible. My result was 10 minutes. Most of it was jibberish. I spoke in sentences, but it wasn't anything that anybody would want to read. I was just happy to know that, if I was to push myself, I could write 75 words per minute.

    I'll be on the word war central site throughout the day, if anyone's interested in warring against me. I usually end up getting stuck alone, which is sad.

    Really would love to play if there is anyone available sometime this month. I really hope this is still a working thread.

    It can be a working thread. How are you thinking of doing it?
