Top Definition
An occurrence in which two or more writers set a time limit, such as ten minutes, or thirty minutes, to write or type as fast as they can on a specific topic or to add onto their current novel. The person with the highest word count at the end of the time limit wins the word war.

A word war may take place on AIM, IM, Gtalk, or any chat services, over the phone, or in real life.

Usually, one person says to start and the two or more people type on Word as fast as they can.

Often used during NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month) or any WriMo (Writing Month) to boost word count.
Let's have a word war on Gchat at 9:00 tonight for fifteen minutes.
