A Word Scrimmage is an event in which participants write or type as fast as they can for a set time limit with the aim of increasing the word count on their current novel or work in progress. The participant who has written the most at the end of the scrimmage is declared the winner.
The event is held regularly on Second Life®, at the 3d home of Virtual Writers, Inc. and on Twitter under the #virtualwriters and #wordscrim hashtags.
