Now that the final numbers are in, we have one more post to wrap up GYWO 2015.

While we commend every writer who stuck with [community profile] getyourwordsout through the entire year, we’d like to take a moment to celebrate the writers who didn’t just stick with the community but who also achieved their pledged goal.

Below the cut is a list of the writers who met or surpassed 100% of their pledge goal. With their name is listed the percentage they achieved and when they completed their pledge. It’s a truly amazing achievement! Come celebrate these writers for completing their GYWO challenge! (If you want to check out the amazing word count totals, see the 2015 Word Count Spreadsheet.)

We have now closed the membership to this community for 2015. If you did not submit a pledge comment, you are not a member for 2015.

The GYWO moderators are thrilled to spend the next year writing with 317 writers.

Those who have come by too late, we appreciate your interest, and we hope that while you aren't able to join us officially, you'll make your own writing goals and achieve them.

Have a great 2015!

Today is the ABSOLUTELY LAST DAY to make your pledge for [community profile] getyourwordsout 2015. We will not accept any pledges made after January 20—no excuses, exceptions, or cash back with a valid receipt. You MUST PLEDGE and MUST REQUEST MEMBERSHIP to be a member. If you have done only one or have deleted your comment, you are NOT a member for 2015. (If you are listed on the user profile, you have done both and are good to go.)

PLEDGE! PLEDGE! PLEDGE!

That's the most important thing to do to make sure you're a member of GYWO for 2015.

Have you pledged?
Light, 75K words
Modest, 150K words
Basic, 200K words
Moderate, 250K words
Difficult, 300K words
Insane, 350K words
Ludicrous, 500K words

After today you cannot make ANY further changes to your pledge, so it's also the last day for second guessing.

GYWO is BACK for 2015! We’re starting our 7th year-long writing challenge with seven pledges to help you challenge yourself, achieve your writing goals, and build a writing life. Keep in mind that even our smallest word count goals require a serious commitment throughout the year. Before choosing your pledge, please take note of the few requirements we have of our members, and carefully consider which of the seven pledges you'd like to choose.


Membership Requirements & Information )


Pledging

Members who pledge for 2015 are permitted to use any number of writing projects to add to their word count over the year. Projects may include (among other things) novels, fanfics, poems, songs, and essays. You can find a guideline of what kinds of projects we count at our website.

When choosing your pledge goal, keep in mind your personal writing habits and what you find most motivating. Will hitting your goal early help propel you to keep writing through the year? Do you need a major challenge to keep you on pace? Have you surpassed smaller goals in previous years and need more of a challenge? Make sure the pledge you make is one that will motivate you.

To make your pledge there are two steps to complete: Pledge & Request.

Step 1: Pledge Follow the link for your pledge to the appropriate post and leave a comment using the journal you intend to have join the community.

  • 75K words, the Light level, approximately 6.25K words/month, 206 words/day (reserved for members with chronic or recurrent conditions)
  • 150K words, the Modest level, approximately 12.5K words/month, 411 words/day
  • 200K words, the Basic level, approximately 16.6K words/month, 548 words/day
  • 250K words, the Moderate level, approximately 20.8K words/month, 685 words/day
  • 300K words, the Difficult level, approximately 25.0K words/month, 822 words/day
  • 350K words, the Insane level, approximately 29.1K words/month, 959 words/day
  • 500K words, the Ludicrous level, approximately 41.6K words/month, 1,370 words/day


Reminders: Sign up with only ONE account.
You may sign up using Livejournal, Dreamwidth, or OpenID.
You may use a fic/writing journal instead of your personal one.
Include your username on the other platforms requested to have access everywhere.
If you have previously participated under a different username (or on Livejournal, if you are signing up on Dreamwidth), please let us know so we can track our repeat members.

Step 2: Request Once you have made your pledge, please request to join the community. We’ll approve memberships on December 31st/January 1st (as we still have the 2014 members scrambling to hit their goals!), but we'll hold you in the queue.

Some members may need to take one more step:
Step 3: Verify Before approving new membership requests we want to make sure your journal is not a bot or a troll—so if your journal is f-locked with little information in your userinfo, you may want to send us a PM to tell us about your writing goals (which confirms you are a human).

If you’re concerned we didn’t receive your pledge: We will be updating the 2015 member list in the profile as new members are verified. Please give us at least 24 hours from submitting your pledge before inquiring about your status. (Over the Christmas holiday we will not be vetting pledges, so please check back on Dec 27th.)


IMPORTANT: Anyone requesting to join the community who has not made a pledge will not be added. To ensure you are not left out, make your pledge first, then request to join.

You have until January 20, 2015 to make your pledge.
After that time you will NOT be able to change your pledge
or join the challenge, so think carefully before committing.



Promotion

If you want to share GYWO with your friends, please feel free to use either of the codes provided to let them know you’ll be writing a lot of words in 2015 and you think they should too.

This is the post to make a pledge to write 500K words in 2015. This pledge is the largest of the goals and is meant for any writers who really want to test their stamina. While writing half a million words in a year is no easy task, we’ve had several members not only complete this pledge, but exceed it! Be prepared to devote your life to writing if you select this one!

For this pledge, the recommended pacing is:
• 41.6K words per month
• 1,370 words per day

You will not be able to change your pledge mid-year, so think carefully before pledging!


Signing up confirms that you have read the membership requirements and understand that you will be required to check in monthly with your word count.

Once you have pledged, please request to join the community. We will add everyone starting December 31.

Comments on this post are screened, but once you have been verified, you will be listed on the user info page under your pledge for 2015. If you have any questions, please ask on the Pledges & Requirements post.

Thank you for your pledge, and we can't wait to write with you in 2015!

This is the post to make a pledge to write 350K words in 2015. This pledge is the second largest of the goals, and as you might guess it takes a huge effort to achieve. You’ll have to write an average of nearly a thousand words a day. Even so, we’ve had many finishers here each year, so we know it’s possible!

For this pledge, the recommended pacing is:
• 29.1K words per month
• 959 words per day

You will not be able to change your pledge mid-year, so think carefully before pledging!

This is the post to make a pledge to write 300K words in 2015. This is probably our most unpredictable pledge level — we've seen amazing years, and we've seen years of struggle. If you’re writing on pace, you’ll be writing a half-NaNo every month! This is a pledge level that will keep you on your toes and offers little room for slacking off.

For this pledge, the recommended pacing is:
• 25.0K words per month
• 822 words per day

You will not be able to change your pledge mid-year, so think carefully before pledging!
