Day Eleven–and we’re still going strong!

Word is spreading about the mighty, mighty power of our chat room writing sprint sessions, and the Rubies have been adding more.
If you haven’t dropped by the chat rooms yet, check out the scheduled writing sprint times in the big blue box on the left-hand side of the Home page.
To join in a sprint, just click on “chat room” in that same blue box, or click on CONNECT on the main bar along the top of the Home page.
Sessions are very friendly, and newbies are welcomed warmly! The moderator will be there to greet you at the top of the hour, encourage some everybody-get-comfy chatting for about ten minutes, then set the timer for 20 minutes of full-on writing madness.
Keep the chat room window open but minimized on your desktop while you write in your word processing program, and the moderator will signal you when 20 minutes is up.
After each sprint, there’s another 10 minute breather for unwinding, chatting, and jubilation over the progress you made. And then another 20-minute sprint begins.
Try to enter at the hour or half-hour, but if you come in part-way through a sprint, the moderator will quickly greet you, then get back to her own sprinting.
You’d be amazed what the focused energy of other writers–even writers typing on other continents–will do for your output! Don’t be shy! Try a sprint today!
