  6. Worldsmyths Community Writing Challenge Round Six: August Sign Ups July 20th - August 3rd The next round of sign ups for the challenge is here already! This will work the same exact why as it did for previous months. You'll have until August 3rd by 11:59 PM GMT-4 to sign up for the month of August. (The word count check ins for May are still going, but we're giving everyone two weeks to sign up each time the next month is approaching.) Please remember, in order to have your word check-ins counted for August, you must have signed up by responding to this post! This is the last month to participate in the challenge until next year! This post is specifically just for choosing and pledging a word count that you want to aim for during the month of August. In order to sign up, you must reply to this post with the word count goal you would like to pledge for August. In order to keep the thread clean, please leave all discussion out of this post. If you have any questions, you can use this post to ask them. If you miss the deadline for signing up by a few days, we will make an exception and allow you to sign up. If you need a refresher of the FAQs and rules, head here. When choosing your goal, remember that you are not aiming to write it within the six months as a whole, you are aiming to write it within a single month. Remember, you do not have to choose the same word count as the previous month. If you surpassed your goal or didn't come anywhere close to it, you are welcome to aim for a higher/lower goal for the month of August. You'll keep writing toward your word count goal for July until July 31st at midnight in your time zone. Remember that the following things count toward your word count: Story writing (novels/short stories) Fan Fiction Brainstorming (world building, character building, etc) Editing If you have not been checking into the check in post for July with your word counts, please make sure you do so! The check in post is here. 5k -Name here- 7k -Name here- 10k -Name here- 15k -Name here- 20k -Name here- 25k -Name here- 30k -Name here- 35k -Name here- 40k -Name here- 45k -Name here- 50k -Name here- 60k 65k -Name here- 70k -Name here- 75K -Name here- 80k -Name here- 85k -Name here- 90k -Name here- 95k -Name here- 100k -Name here- 125k -Name here- 150k -Name here- 175k -Name here- 200k -Name here- Tagging: @Penguinball, @Mynoris, @Pinchofmagic, @taintedhero, @C_M_Clark, @RKM, @LShelby, @Amblygon, @Arc, @Titania, @XanthussMarduk, @Autumn, @Crysania, @bdcharles, @Jessitiz, @Sheepy-Pie, @DaVinci, @nikipinz, @fenn, @airrica, @Anthony Lockwood, @Dreamcatcher, @electric, @TricksterShi, @Elena, @Emskie-Wings, @Fluffypoodel, @EdelBeeRocker, @lorneytunes, @EliBrightwood, @M.N.

  8. I wrote words! (just a few) Today's date: [July 17, 2019] Words to add: [543] words New total: [27,321] words “Be patient,” she told the monkey after placing the cage on the table in the computer room.
  9. Updated! @A Blue Gorilla, @lorneytunes, @Misades, @Rohierim, @jdvollans just a reminder to get your word counts in!
  10. I wrote words! Today's date: [July 16, 2019] Words to add: [1,737] words New total: [26,778] words " I think we’ve done enough damage for the day.”
  11. I wrote words! Today's date: July 15th Words to add: [696] words New total: [6,413] words
  12. I (finally) wrote words! Today's date: [July 15, 2019] Words to add: [1784] words New total: [1784] words Some of these words are from yesterday, but I didn't keep track. So here we go, grand total.
  13. I wrote words! Today's date: [July 15, 2019] Words to add: [2,039] words New total: [25,041] words “Under normal circumstances, I would tell you that there was nothing to worry about, send you on your way before calling my friends in high places.”
  14. Assuming we're talking about the same thing, that's because that person wasn't doing it correctly. They were continuing their word count from the previous month, and I had to tell them that they needed to "reset" their word count from the previous month for their June total. They weren't resetting their total from the entire challenge so far. Again, this is assuming we're talking about the same response, but I can't think of anything else offhand that might have led you to think that. Anyway, I've updated the excel sheet.
  15. Today's date: 15-th of July 2019 Previous month's total: [16,042] words for June Four months total (March-June): [77,748] wordsNew words for July: [11,162] words Another late reporting writer. I update more often the Camp NaNo, but that one is counted in pages, for revision... It goes quite well. I got confused by a message on the previous page and I didn't add the new total anymore, like I used to the previous months, understanding that I shouldn't until the final of the month....
  16. I wrote words! Today's date: [July 14, 2019] Words to add: [2,155] words New total: [23,002] words “Ah,” Eva hesitated. Kira had no clearance to call this number, nor should she know of it.
  17. Missed some check-ins again, but it doesn't mean I wasn't writing. I wrote words! Today's date: [July 12, 2019] Words to add: [4,674] words Today's date: [July 13, 2019] Words to add: [546] words Today's date: [July 14, 2019] Words to add: [3,641] words

  19. I wrote words! Today's date: July 13th Words to add: [329] words New total: [5,717] words 
  20. I think you're stuck in the past 😛 Yesterday's date was the 13th. Excel sheet has been updated!
  21. If you select the text that you want to quote from within a response, it gives you the option to quote just that text, like this: You actually just reminded me that I should do a tutorial on how to do things like this on the forum, so thank you XD And you're welcome for the reply. XD That's fair enough! I hope you'll be able to participate in August. 🙂
