Word Wars

On your mark, get set, write!  No, this isn't a foot-race, it's much better...a word war.
Urban Dictionary defines a word war as "An occurrence in which two or more writers set a time limit, such as ten minutes, or thirty minutes, to write or type as fast as they can on a specific topic or to add onto their current novel. The person with the highest word count at the end of the time limit wins the word war."  That's a pretty good definition.  Word wars help writers meet deadlines such as that imposed by NaNoWriMo or push past tough parts of their novels.

I could use a word war.  I've never actually participated in one, and I'm yet again (it happens quite a bit) in a writing slump.  A challenge, anyone?
