ANNOUNCEMENT:
Sprinting starts at 2am WDC on Nov. 1.


RULES:

1. Joining a Sprint
In the subject line of a new message, announce your intention to join an upcoming "official" or "mini" sprint with the word "JOIN" and the scheduled sprint time. Please use military/international time. All times are according to the WDC clock. (Example: "JOIN 10:00" or "JOIN 14:15 MINI")

Check the top of your Favorites bar for current WDC time. *Right*

2. Sprinting
         *LeafR* Set up your writing space.
                    - You can write in any application you choose.
                    - If adding to your ongoing novel, clearly delineate the current sprint.
         *LeafR* Using a separate device or window, open Google.
                    - IMPORTANT: Make sure the device has adequate volume.
         *LeafR* Type "Timer 30 minutes" (or "Timer 15 minutes" for a mini-sprint.)
         *LeafR* Write.
         *LeafR* When the timer alarm goes off, stop writing.
         *LeafR* Copy/paste your words into https://wordcounter.net.
         *LeafR* Report your word count.

6. Elimination
*Leaf1* All Sprinters start the month with a 5-day grace period.
*Leaf1* After the grace period, Sprinters must maintain a cumulative score of 4 points per day or risk elimination. For example:
         On 11/6 you must have 4 points.
         On 11/7 you must have 8 points.
         On 11/8 you must have 12 points.
         ...etc.
*Leaf1* Sprinters who fall below the required daily cumulative score are eliminated (you will be removed from the scoresheet.)
*Leaf1* Keep track of your cumulative points on the Sprint Writers Scoresheet.

7. Prizes
The top-scoring Sprinters at the end of November earn prizes of some kind or another. Yes, we realize that's vague. We're trying to NaNo, here, people. Shut up and sprint, already, and for goodness sake, don't get eliminated. That would be A Very Bad Thing.
