Word Crawls are one of my favorite tools! They are a great way to get a lot of words written without getting burnt out by just writing and writing until you stop. There is a great sense of accomplishment with every step as you follow the story, and attempt an array of challenges.
If you’ve never done a Word Crawl, you should certainly try it and see how it fits with your writing style!
I have compiled my favorite Word Crawls (collected from the NaNoWriMo Forums) into a PDF so I could print them out for easy access, and you are more than welcome to download my Updated Ultimate Word Crawl List by clicking here!
My list includes the following crawls:
- The Extreme Clean Home Crawl (This one is my top favorite, because it keeps the house clean)
- Harry Potter Years 1-7
- Star Wars
- Alice in Wonderland
- Gilmore Girls
- The NaNoWriMo Crawl
- Dr. Horrible Sing-A-Long Blog
- Halo: Forward Unto Dawn (I wrote this one! It has a lot of challenges, so be prepared to write hard!)
