100 Hours of Writing

100 Hours of Writing is a Wrimo-led event created by a group of MLs during NaNoWriMo 2020. It was created as a way for Wrimos to connect with others during the COVID-19 pandemic, as in-person write-ins were disallowed.

Each stream features word sprints, conversation about stories, and more. Although stream viewers cannot use voice or video to chat with the streamer, they can use the chat box at the side to report word counts, answer the streamer's questions, and talk to other Wrimos. At the end of each stream, the streamer uses Twitch's raid feature to send viewers into the next stream so viewers do not have to look up the next streamer's channel.

The November 2020 event took place from November 13 at 8:00 pm UTC-5 to November 17 11:59 pm UTC-5, hence the name 100 Hours of Writing.

A shorter version of 100 Hours of Writing returned during Camp NaNoWriMo's April 2021 session called the Weekend of Writing Wildly. It featured 34 hours of writing on Twitch from April 9 at 2:00 pm UTC-4 to April 10 at 11:59 pm UTC-4. Wrimos participating in these writing streams wrote 122,521 words, plus 1,372 minutes of editing with 37 people editing [1].
