Remember that old game you used to play in elementary school, where you lock fist with a friend (or enemy) and say:
One, two, three, four.
I declare a thumby war.
Well, Goal Wars is kind of the same. Only, instead of squashing you partner's thumb into submission, you're squashing your own goals for that day. I got the idea when Nisha Sharma and I decided to faceoff (my copyedits vs. her three chapters) on Twitter. What better way to use the Twitterverse than to become more productive?
The rules are simple. Declare your Goal War for the day by defining your goal, choosing your partner(s), and posting both to Twitter with the #goalwar tag. At the end of the day, post your reckoning. Claim your reward if you succeeded, admit defeat if you failed. Anyone who includes me (@teralynnchilds) in their Goal War will get posted to my blog in either the Hall of Heroes or the Wall of Shame. Enter the battlefield at your own peril.
OH. MY. GODS. (now in paperback!)
