What does #1k1hr mean?
#1k1hr is a Twitter hashtag that stands for 1,000 words written in 1 hour.
Do I have to write 1,000 words??? in 1 hour???
No, you can write more! Or less. It’s just a great excuse to get words down.
What are we writing about?
Everyone works on their own projects. Bring your W.I.P. (work in progress) – novel, memoir, story, article… Writing prompts will also be available, if needed.
How do you count the words written?
It’s not an exact science. If you’re using Word, there’s a tool under “Review” called “Word Count.” If you’re writing by hand, you can estimate how many words you write per page and multiply from there. The goal really is for this exercise to be generative. We don’t have to be sticklers. Unless you want to be a stickler. In which case, go ahead and stickle.
Will we be sharing our work or giving critiques?
No. We will simply be writing. Fast.
What if I’m not in Fort Collins or am trapped at home under piles of cats?
Participate online! I will be posting time intervals and updates on Twitter using the #1k1hr hashtag (@SylDeLeon). Also, if you join the FB event (found here), we’ll post sprints and progress there as well.
