We have now closed membership to this community for 2019. If you did not submit a completed pledge comment, you are not a member for 2019.

The GYWO moderators are thrilled to spend the next year writing with 660 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. You’re welcome to subscribe to the community to keep a look out for 2020 news, or follow us on [twitter.com profile] gywo or [tumblr.com profile] gywo for prompts, writing advice, and resources. Pledging for 2020 will open in December 2019.

Have a great year!

GYWO is BACK for 2019! We’re starting our eleventh year-long writing challenge with ten pledges to help you challenge yourself, achieve your writing goals, and build a writing life.

Keep in mind that even our smallest goals require a serious commitment throughout the year. While it’s okay for writers to be behind or even entirely miss their pledge goal, we want you to pick a pledge that could be achievable for you and will keep you writing all year long. Before choosing your pledge, please take note of the few requirements we have of our members, and carefully consider which of the ten pledges you'd like to choose. You may only choose one pledge.


Membership Requirements & Information )


Pledge Types )


Pledging

If you pledged in a previous year, and didn't meet your goal, quit, or were removed from the comm for missing check-ins, you are welcome to pledge again.

When choosing your pledge, consider your personal writing habits and what you find most motivating. Will hitting your word count goal early help propel you to keep writing through the remainder of 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? Are you already writing multiple days a week? 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 use to join the community. Cut and paste the form at the pledge post to ensure you’re leaving all of the information needed.

    Word Count Pledges
  • 75K words, the Light level, approximately 6.25K words/month, 205 words/day (reserved for members with significant impact to their writing time)
  • 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

  • Habit Pledges
  • 120 days, the Apprentice level, approximately 10 days/month
  • 240 days, the Journeyman level, approximately 20 days/month
  • 350 days, the Master level, approximately 29–30 days/month


  • Reminders: Sign up for only ONE pledge.
    Sign up with only ONE account.
    You may sign up using 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), please let us know so we can track our repeat members.


Step 2: Request
Once you have left your pledge comment, please request to join the community. We will approve memberships on January 1st (as we still have 2018 members scrambling to hit their goals!), but we'll hold you in the queue.
If you are a current member, you won’t need to request as you are already a member of the community.


If you’re concerned we didn’t receive your pledge: We will be updating the 2019 list in the profile as new members are verified. Please give us at least twenty-four 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 15, 2019 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.

This is the post to make a pledge to write 500K words in 2019. This pledge is the largest of the word count 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 for GYWO and your pledge, and understand that you will be required to check in monthly with your year-to-date word count.

Once you have pledged, please request to join the community. We will add everyone starting January 1.

Comments on this post are screened, but once you have been verified, you will be listed on the profile page under your pledge for 2019. 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 2019!

This is the post to make a pledge to write 350K words in 2019. This pledge is the second largest of the word count 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

This is the post to make a pledge to write 300K words in 2019. This is probably our most unpredictable word count goal—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!

This is the post to make a pledge to write 250K words in 2019. A serious word count goal to be sure, but it's a good one for anyone who's completed the smaller pledges a time or two (hint hint!). Meeting this goal requires a steady commitment to writing and a willingness to self-motivate.

For this pledge, the recommended pacing is:
• 20.8K words per month
• 685 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 200K words in 2019. That’s just NaNoWriMo and a few big bangs, right? Doesn’t sound difficult at all, does it? It may not sound like a challenging word count goal, especially when looking at some of the other pledges, but appearances can be deceiving! Meeting 200K is no cake walk.

For this pledge, the recommended pacing is:
• 16.6K words per month
• 548 words per day

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