A Word Scrimmage is an event in which participants write, or type, as fast as they can for an agreed time, 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, and on Twitter under the #virtualwriters and #wordscrim hashtags.

This word-boosting technique is also known as a word war and is often used during NaNoWriMo and Script Frenzy.
