The goal of Writing Game is not to make multiple rounds around the board, but to accumulate as many points as possible.

You may switch fandoms/worlds whenever you first pass 20 points, 40, 60, 70, 80, 90, 100, 105, 110, 115, 120, then free for all.
e.g. Total points: 19. Complete a +3 prompt.
This brings you to 22 points. At this point you may switch fandoms/worlds.

You may go clockwise or counterclockwise on this board, but don't change directions midway.
Exceptions: 1) You are going backwards because you skip a prompt.
2) You are at a Player’s Choice Square.

All the general rules can be found in the profile.
