Congrats everyone! 

This was an amazing run! I tried my hand at participating this time around but I must admit I fell out of the list rather quickly. It is so wonderful to see so many have managed to complete this challenge in time. 

Hope you had fun! Leave a comment here, and go do a celebration dance in the Celebration Forum
Fun fact: 
I didn't know what to do with this fiction. The author published a new chapter a moment after the challenge ended, which would've made them win. Except, bit was 55,552 words at the deadline (missing 3 words). 

So, I am leaving it here. 


feeling bad for the guy

That’s a real feels bad man moment. I’m surprised hoe many were right on the line.

bless your soul for sharing it anyway!

this was really awesome, thanks for making this event
participating was worth every bit of time i spent
can't wait to continue writing more with what i've learned
this is the hottest that my writing passion's ever burned!

Well, you could just give him the title.

I mean, if you include the name of the novel (Contract Summoner [Revised]), I guess you'd have the 55,555 words.

Also, it could have just been edits that dropped the word count. Personally I'd give it to him. 

But only if he adds these three words:

I love Wing!


Thank you for the Contest

I'm thereeeeee.

Props to everybody!

Imma take a well deserved rest, good job everyone, take a rest, next time I assure I'll do better


Now waiting for my premium~

For a second I had forgotten the premium... 


Awards will be handed within the next few hours. 

Thank you for the info! 

Wooooooooooooo! And great werds were had by all!

I was only spectating this time around, but congratulations to everyone who dug in and stuck it out to the end!!! (and even those who tried but didn't quite make it!) Awesome effort!!! 

Thank you for the contest! It really was a way to get my gears grinding and actually get myself to write. Having a incentive or pressure really does help.

Thanks for another fun contest

I've made it 🎉🥳🥳🥳🥳

Congratulations for all the winners 🎉🎉🎉

I am just a little above the goal (Cosmic Contingency) but still happy that I reached it. Congrats to everyone!

Have no idea how someone wrote so much in such a short time without burning out.

But at least I made it with 71k.

Now that is really impressive. 71k in that little time? I just barely skated by with exactly 55,555. Very well done and congrats!

hahaha, congratz to you too.

Heyyy, that's me right on the bottom! I wondered where I'd end up. I wonder if I'm down there for finishing so late, but regardless, cheers, everyone!

Congrats on the fellow challengers and the winners. On the list or not, we worked our collective butts off and pushed at our boundaries. Considering how hard it was that many people decided against doing it, take the pleasure and the dopamine that you did. And even if you didn't make it, take pride that you tried in the first place.


now if anyone can excuse me, i got a backlog to create @[email protected]

Got sick and was unable to finish writing the last 10,000 words on my story, Silva, really sad about missing the second deadline. Super thankful for everyone who read it after seeing it on the first list. Can’t wait for another writathon! 

Yay! I made it for my first Writathon. Great feeling. :)

Ack, I thought it ended tomorrow! Still almost 60k! Thanks for the challenge :D

It was a nice experience, I improved tremendously during this. A shame I stopped 5 days before the deadline as my first volume was over along the writathon specials I made right after. Maybe I should've crammed 5 more individual chapters. Still, since I stopped at 69k I can only say it was meant to be :D

Congrats everyone!!! We did it!!!!!!!!

That's one very big list! Glad I made it, congrats to everyone that participated! 💪😀

congratulations everyone! It's been fun.

I did it, I guess.

Hurrah! I see me! 

Big well done to everyone who even took part. It was hard going at times, but I'm glad I did it. The community feeling and support from other participants was what kept myself going when I'd hit bottom. 

  1. And thank you to admins and staff for putting this on!

It was an awesome challenge and I was able to finish with 65k. 

Congratulations to everyone that won and to everyone that attempted. We are all awesome for trying something like this. 

I can't wait for the next one since I will be doing all challenges to help improve my writing. Thanks to everyone for reading and here is too more stories done the line. 

Didn't make it but I'm very proud of my story's progress. Maybe next time.

Congrats to the winners!

I've never expected myself to be here, yet I am.

Also surprised to find fellow spanish writers.

Awesome and congrats to all authors who participated!

Is the list available somewhere on one page in the normal RR list format (with cover images, blurbs, link to author and stars)?

Yay! I see myself! Congrats to all the other writers to made it too! Thanks for making this event, I had a blast participating!

Congrats to everyone who finished the challenge! And those who didn't, no worries! You can always try again and try to beat your previous run.

And?.... which of those do you guys recommend?

I find it somewhat funny that a bunch of people purposefully posted exactly 55,555 words.

I'd like to add my congratulations to those from everyone else and especially to those of you who started late but still made the cut - I recognise at least two stories that didn't have any chapters published by the halfway mark in the list above and I'm pretty sure at least one published all its chapters in the last seven days. 

Congratulations to all the winners!

My first story I managed 11, I'm happy for that.

I failed the write-a-thon...

Eyyyy congrats everyone we did it!


And to everyone who might not have made it in time, you still gave it a good shot and you deserve credit for that.


Awesome! Thank you. (I'm in the middle, but it's cool to see!) <3

Yay for the free premium

That's what matters in the end. Free shit. The work? Just rewrite it lol

My hat goes off to Pastafarian, who decided to write 69,420 words in this Writathon.

Love ‘Tori Transmigrated’ glad to see it ranked so high.

A lot of these novels have been abandoned or are on hiatus...
