Hi folks, a very rare mod post.

I’m not sure if this has been done before or not, so I thought that it would be good for us to have a feedback and suggestions post.

This is where you all tell me what is working, what isn’t working and anything else in-between, and although I aren’t screening comments, you can also PM me about anything related to the community at any time.

Mod contact info — I will get around to changing the mod contact info on the profile page because I’m not certain if the people named as contacts for the community are actively using Dreamwidth anymore.

Tags — I’m going to leave the tags alone for the time being but I would like to tidy them up a bit because there are several that haven’t been used for a long time and I still need to figure out what to do with those.

Over to you.

It's time to sign up for the September WIP challenge!

Some people join the challenge midmonth, or comment on check-in posts without signing up, which is fine -- I'm glad there's a way for the challenge to be useful in a variety of ways.

But for those of you who find the commitment of signing up useful, please leave a comment with the below information.

Signups will be open until the end of August.



  • Level of challenge: 1 chapter, 1000 words, 1 fic finished, whatever you like
  • Fandom(s) involved: if you know at this point
  • What you're looking for from the challenge: this could be as vague or specific as you like: someone to be accountable to, someone to remind you to write, someone to bounce ideas off, etc.
  • What you could offer other participants yourself: ditto!
  • How people should contact you: DW message, e-mail, IM etc.
  • Time zone: useful for seeing who might be up for a writing session at a time convenient to you


Copypaste below:



I couldn't continue to run this challenge without assistance with the daily check-in posts. Many thanks to everyone who's helped with the check-ins before!

Please let me know if you'd be interested in helping out. A week per person would be ideal (I usually assign weeks running Sunday-Saturday just for consistency). I'm happy to help come up with suggestions for discussion topics (& Friday or Saturday is usually the general chat/snippet/beta-seeking etc. post).

(& if you've completed a fic through the challenge, don't forget our collection on AO3! If you need AO3 invites, let me know.)

Sorry about disappearing last week, RL kind of imploded on me and all of those things had to be bumped up to the top of the list. I'll definitely be around this week, even if RL decides to implode again. I'm not around from the 23rd to the 30th with travelling but I think one or both of those weeks are already covered.

Anyway, I'm rambling on. How is the writing going?

Hi everyone, I have no idea what even happened last week so we'll forget about it because I thought it was covered but obviously not. So we have a new week for maybe finishing something.

There was a "describe your creative process in a gif" meme going around twitter last month -- what would your entry be? (Credit and/or describe the gifs if you can, but I'm not actually the gif police. If you can't use gifs, feel free to use text to describe Cher and Dee freaking out on the highway or quote a Kardashian or whatever.)
