    Some of you guys have probably seen me raving about this on Discord already, but I wanted to, like ... let everybody know it exists because I love it alshflasjflajsfhjalsf.

    So, there’s this awesome writing site that Elle was kind enough to tell me about. It’s called 4THEWORDS and it’s SO MUCH FUN! It’s #1 goal is to make you write more and they do it in a really fun way. It’s basically an rpg where you are rewarded based on how much writing you do.

    [​IMG]
    • ORGANIZE YOUR WRITING!!! You’re able to organize your writing into projects and chapters. I don’t really do any solo writing, I just use it to write roleplay posts so the setup doesn’t apply to me, but it would be super useful for others!!
    • FIGHT MONSTERS!!! There are challenges to defeat monsters by writing x words in x amount of time, which is super motivational!
    • DRESS UP ALL CUTE!!! If you like avatar dress-up games like Gaia, Menewsha, Line Play, etc, you will probably love this. The art is really clean, cute, and colorful, and as you progress, you get more cool stuff!
    • LOTS MORE!!! There’s a world map, zones, CRAFTING, a lot of amazing work has been put into this game! It’s not perfect, but it’s also still currently in beta mode (I think it’s been in beta for a long time) and I read that it’s already seen massive improvements from when it was first released.

    Unfortunately, it’s not entirely free, but if you sign up, it does start you with a 30 DAY TRIAL, so you can at least try it free for the first month! The nice thing, though, is it looks like it’s only $4 a month, so if you love it and are getting a lot out of it, I do feel it’s worth it!

    If anybody does decide to try this out, pop in my referral code at registration:
    UCBLK83797

    If you end up deciding to subscribe (I plan to once my trial is over!), we’ll both get stuff!

    YAYYYY, I love seeing people trying this, it's amazing!!!!

    Cool thing I just read about on the forums, you can get awesome wings for your avatar from streak rewards if you write 444+ words every day! I think it's different kinds of wings at different checkpoints, I just have no idea what they are.

    I definitely did not just spend real money on cosmetics. Ahem. Also I need that damned raven pet but I refuse to spend more irl money on gems. I WILL EARN IT

    So, the problem with me is that I like to pause in my writing way too much to research things and edit as I go, so I keep losing timed battles XD I guess this is a good way to break that habit?

    This looks absolutely adorable and I was all ready to go for it until I saw it required a subscription. Aw, shucks! Looks like I'll be giving it a pass for now.

    Fortunately I found another site called Fighter's Block! It's free and not nearly as fancy but still seems pretty rewarding. If anyone here can't afford 4TheWords or is cheap like me, I recommend it!

    LOL @Jen YOU CAVED SO FAST, I haven't even spent any real money yet!!!

    Also alsjalsfhajsf I totally feel you about the running out of time thing. I know there are other way longer battles that will be like ... write 1600 words in 24 hours, which gives you a lot more time to wander away and stuff. I went to bed and woke up last night and my battle was still going! So maybe it's just a matter of trying to determine how much time you'll need depending on what you're replying to. Or breaking that habit LOL!

    @Nyami Thanks for the free alternative, Nyami!! We love productivity apps!!!! =D
