One last thing ...

Team 4 final word count ....

Drum roll please ....

In the last 5 months we have written 2,044,549 words as a team with 10 active members.

Congrats to acushla712 for the highest word count.

Awesome job all!

Day 116-120 (April 26th-30th)

Get your final word counts in ASAP! I'll be posting to the main comm by the end of the weekend. This is the last post for springwrite, so if you have ANYTHING outstanding, get it in NOW! Cause you won't get another chance!

And PS, team 4, it's been a blast for the last 20 months! Keep up the writing, and maybe I'll be back around next season!

Day 109-115 (April 19th-25th)

Day 102-108 (April 12th-18th)

Update of sorts...

Just a heads up for team 4 - I've come to the rather obvious conclusion that after this season ends, I'm stepping down as mod of seasonwrite4. If anyone had has any interest in modding, start thinking it over and let me know. Modship would be handed over to you starting the first of May.

There have been a lot of things distracting me from this comm in recent months, and I haven't been giving it even 25% of what I should. After 20 months of being mod, I just can't keep it up. I got a new job in January that I love, but that is consuming my time (lots of overtime each week!), and I'm mod of two other comms in addition to this one, and something had to go. Unfortunately, it's going to have to be this one.

So think it over guys, if anyone is interested, let me know. Being mod is basically posting word count entries, keeping a spreadsheet of all the writers, and posting it weekly to seasonwrite. It's also nice to be able to post weekly challenges or weekend challenges, or such to the comm, and reporting to the comm where everyone is standing with their word counts and such. It's not a ton of work, but it needs more love then I can give it.

Editting Tips

Hi all!

I'm not sure if anyone else has trouble editting as much as I do but thought this article might be helpful-


I suck at editting, I prefer the process of the first draft and hoping I can finish my current second draft by the end of this month in order to start something new in April.

Hope this helps!

Day 75-81 (March 15th-121st)

My internet went out last night and did some weird thing ... idk ... anyways ...

Your tricks for reaching 150k

April is fast approaching. There's about a week and a half or so of March left to go, I'm not sure about the rest of you but April will need to be made up of magic for me to achieve 150k. Granted I'm doing better with writing this month I'm just curious for anyone whose behind if they have any tricks up their sleeve to come through?

Like participating in Script Frenzy and cranking out 100 pages off playwright, movie script, graphic novel, etc craziness? I've signed up for script frenzy in order to work on a comic I've had in mind but it won't be my primary focus since I prefer writing shorts/novels vs scripts. So my trick for April will be scracthing out the word "April" on my calendar to ink in "November", lol.

Anyone else behind? Trying to figure out their time for next month? Writing a huge number of shorts to push your word count upward? Script Frenzy? Your own version of Nano? Ducking in a corner and hiding from the keyboard? Hoping Casper will appear and accept your ramen as payment to type your project for you while you rattle ideas from the bed?

"Great Rules of Writing"
~William Safire

1.Do not put statements in the negative form.

2. And don't start sentences with a conjunction.

3. If you reread your work, you will find on rereading that a great deal of repetition can be avoided by rereading and editing.

4.Never use a long word when a diminutive one will do.

5.Unqualified superlatives are the worst of all.

6. De-accession euphemisms.

7. If any word is improper at the end of a sentence, a linking verb is.

8. Avoid trendy locutions that sound flaky.

9. Last, but not least, avoid cliches like the plague.
