April Bootcamp

April Bootcamp

Are you a procrastinator in need of motivation?

Hate writing alone? Looking for a writing buddy or two? We are going to provide the motivation for whatever writing path you are looking for. We will have two writing paths to April Bootcamp success.
  • For those looking for a group dynamic, we are bringing back the teams with the daily challenges and team bonus days.
  • For those looking for a less stressful experience without the daily challenges and team bonuses, we are also offering registrants to compete on their own with all the motivation that they'd like.
Your April BootCamp Mission: 50,000 words.

BootCamp is all about writing that new first draft. You write DAILY and you report back to your team on words written.

We are on the search for sprint leaders!

We are looking for leaders that can run hour long (or more) sprints through out April. If you are interested, please email [email protected] with the dates, times, and time zones that you are available to lead sprints.

What is a writing sprint? It's a length of time (30 minutes to an hour or more) where writers gather in our sprint chatroom with the common goal of writing as many words as they can without distractions. At the end of the sprint, each person announces their word count and we all cheer! :)

What's a sprint leader? A member that leads a writing sprint. They announce when it's time to start the sprint and when the sprint ends.

What does a sprint leader need to do? The sprint leader meets 5-10 minutes before the scheduled start time for their sprint. They welcome other sprinters. Then on the hour announces that the sprint has started and then at the end announces the end of the sprint.

I enjoyed being accountable with word count and I appreciated all of RJ's bountiful effort and enthusiasm. It would be good for the sprints to have emails sent out saying: We're sprinting in an hour. Also, as I'm in a different time zone, it would be good to vary the times for the writing sprints. Maybe, during bootcamp we could be "matched" with similar genre partners and encourage each other to reach our goals.

Thanks, Bella! Great feedback! We will definitely look to offer more sprints in different time zones and send out announcement emails. Happy writing!
