What is it?
The Writing Arcade is a year-long, arcade-style challenge with tickets and prizes. After you register, you track your writing, participate in challenges, defeat the bosses, level up, and earn tickets as you write. You can redeem your tickets for prizes throughout the year.

How it works
The most important tool you need for the Writing Arcade is the WW Achievement Tracker. This tracker has space for you to track your word count, competition entries, Arcade-related participation, and your tickets.
Register for the Writing Arcade: Press Start. Registration is open all year.
Once you have your tracker, fill it with your successes throughout the year and watch your daily, weekly, and monthly averages grow! Update your word count when you write. Each week, the Leader Board is updated on the cusp of Thursday morning, UTC, so make sure your word counts are up-to-date on Wednesdays!
Each level requires a different number of words to earn one ticket.
Level 1 - 2,000 words
Level 2 - 1,900 words
Level 3 - 1,800 words
Level 4 - 1,700 words
Level 5 - 1,600 words
Level 6 - 1,500 words
Level 7 - 1,450 words
Level 8 - 1,400 words
Level 9 - 1,350 words
Level 10 - 1,300 words
Level 11 - 1,250 words
