NaNo Prep – Day 7: Word Sprints

Hey Pieces,

I’m here to talk to you about a little thing that could save your novel’s life. WORD SPRINTS!

Word sprints originated in the Wrimo Community on Twitter and have been helping people reach their word counts ever since.

A word sprint is when you sprint and write as much as you can in a set time! Its not only invigorating but super telling about one’s self! I had no idea I could write 1000 words in 20 minutes!!

You might be wondering, “How do I find these?”

Go check out the list of sprints that is on The Sprint Shack! 🙂 They are awesome at keeping track of all the sprints, and are currently rounding up all the twitter handles that will be hosting sprints in November!!

Another great way of finding wrimos and sprinters is with hashtags! Here are a few to look for:


I hope this helps you out with catching your word counts and making them your…buddy! :3
