Promo Post!!! Come join the fun  
Are you struggling to write? Will the words just not come? Looking for support of your porn writing habit? I've got the answer!


1_million_words is a multi-fandom multi-fun place to hang out, find prompts, receive cheerleading and kudos, meet other writers!

It all started when kaige68 and haldoor wondered if they could find a group of friends who together would write One Million Words by the end of 2013. That goal was surpassed already! So now we're collectively trying for TEN Million Words.

This comm is no pressure, no rules, just cheerleading and encouragement - something we all need from time to time. And we're always looking for more folks to join the fun!

Hope you'll join us!

Question: this sounds like fun, but can I still participate if I don't share the writing outside of my flist? Or should I ask the mods?

Hey! The comm is great fun!!!

kaige68 (my evil queen) founder of the comm responded with this:

Where ever the words are posted count as posted!!! That we all cannot see them does not matter one bit for overall count. If Scraplove participates in a challenge, then posting in the comm would be nice, but not needed. We would still be happy that words had been made and that we could help!

We all keep our counts and post the numbers at the end of each month. Some people post links to their stories. Some just post numbers. So whatever makes you most comfortable is 100% fine. No rules - which is one of the things I like best about the comm.

Here's the post where we track the number of words: http://1-million-words.livejournal.com/725.html

It will give you an idea of how differently everyone does their counts.

Hope this helps!

Thanks so much! I appreciate you finding out. I had almost no time to write during the school year, so this seems like a good way to get back into it.

I don't exactly have a lot of confidence in my writing and it generally takes me a while to get anything done...do a lot/all the challenges have time limits on them?

and the bingo cards for June...I seem to enjoy doing those(even though the writing sucks and it takes me forever), but is it too late to ask for one of those as its nearing the end of June now?

Hey BB! This comm is just what you need. We have cheerleaders! We have prompting parties!! We have kudos!! We do NOT have rules!!

I think you can still get a bingo card. I believe she had extras. If you ask, I feel sure she'll be able to make you one. And if you don't get it done before the end of June, you still get to count the words!

The only deadlines are if you want the "rewards." But most of us use the prompts posted as...well... prompts rather than "I must do this" kind of things.

We couldn't be a more supportive, easy going group if we tried! Give us a try. If you decide it's not for you, we won't chase after you, I promise. We're all there for the community of it - for the virtual hugs and the cheers we get - and give!

that all sounds awesome, and very much what I need!

Thank you for all the info...I'll definitely have a proper look through it all tomorrow :))

I must thank you for posting this...I'd seen the community around, but hadn't joined until I saw this post, and got myself a bingo card and have written more words(not very good words, but still words lol) for that than I had all year :)

That's what we're about, BB! Words. Glorious words!!!

So glad you've joined the fun.

More words for everybody!!!

Write on. Doesn't matter if you aren't 100% pleased. Getting the words down is what is important.
