Words Written Today: 1651
Words I Still Need to Write Today: 16
Writing Music Obsession: 1 Hour of Epic Music (Brunuhville version)

First of all, I'm planning to host a word war on my blog from 3:00-4:00 PM EST on Thursday, November 19. I hope this time will work for everyone; if it doesn't, let me know and I'll try to reschedule.

Second, a friend of mine requested a "Write so many words if . . ." for the Avengers movie, since she liked my LOTR version. I thought others might enjoy it as well, so here it is!

Write so many words if . . .
  • Two of the Avengers argue: 75 words
    • More than two are in the argument: +5 for each additional person
    • Steve and Tony are arguing: +25
  • Loki uses the spear to try to take control of someone: 100 words
  • Someone is released from Loki's control: 50 words
  • Someone says one of your favorite quotes: However many words are in that quote.
  • There's a fight/battle scene: 100 words
    • +10 words for every Avenger involved
    • +50 words if Loki's directly involved
    • +20 words if two or more Avengers are fighting each other
  • Someone mentions Coulson's trading cards: 25 words
    • +10 words if it's Coulson himself
  • Tony tries to provoke Dr. Banner: 25 words
  • Someone jumps into something without a plan: 75 words
    • +10 if it's Tony
I hope you enjoy it! Let me know how it goes, as well as whether or not you'll be able to participate in the word war!

  1. Wow! That's quite a challenge! How do you even find time to write when you're in the middle of watching the Avengers? ;)
    Since I know that movie pretty well, I could probably figure an estimate of total words I'd need to write just from memory.... with that many words, I might almost finish one of my novels!

    1. Well, I haven't done this Avengers one, but when I did the LOTR version, I paused the movie after every scene or so to write the required words. It helps if you don't mind watching the movie in multiple parts- which I don't; it's how I usually watch movies. (At least when I'm watching them by myself.)


I'd love to hear your thoughts! But remember: it pays to be polite to dragons.
