Gunnery Sergeant Hartman's Insane Writer Training

/!\ This sprint is obviously based on "Full Metal Jacket" and the character of the same name. As such it will Include ample use of profanity and defamatory language. You have been warned. /!\
This is a rather insane regiment to follow. Every bit of it can be discarded to protect your safety or sanity. But it's fun, so do it if you dare!

  This crawl can be made in a group, with a nasty surprise for the slow ones.
If you are alone I am sorry to tell you that you are de facto the Private Pyle of the pack. Sorry. (or not)
I am a grown up !

Paris Island, Day 1

Welcome to hell, privates! I am Gunnery Sergeant Hartman, your Senior Drill Instructor. From now on, you will speak only when spoken to, and the first and last words out of your filthy sewers will be "Sir!"
Do you maggots understand that?

Bullshit I hear nothing!
- Get to your faces and make me 15! (15 minutes word sprint).

God That was slow, you are writing like the olds are fucking, slow and missing the point!
I will make you write faster even if I need to kill you myself for that! Everybody out, let's go do some PT!
- Orientation training! Let's see if you know your way around a story for a bit! The last one to 500 words will be in a world of shit. (500 words sprint, see below for the world of shit, table)

Private Pyle, you go punish yourself, the other follow me to the field. Can anyone of you give me the name of a famous writer? No-one?
