31 Days to Surviving NaNoWriMo - Word Wars

Day 14 - Creating A Language

Word wars are when one or more NaNo-ers challenge each other to write the most words in a set amount of time (I've seen anywhere from ten minutes to an hour, but I'm sure they've gone longer as well).

There is a specific forum for word wars (as well as writing prompts and sprints) if you want to look there.  You could also challenge a writing buddy or find someone in a smaller group (for example, I'm in both the official and an unofficial NaNo FB group/page, and both have word wars, particularly the unofficial one).

I know they may not be for everyone, but I like word wars.  I'm a lot more competitive than I tend to let on, and the need to win pushes me on to write as many words as I possibly can.  If you're competitive, they could definitely be an asset for you!
