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.

Suddenly, a weekend appears! I'm kind of relieved, to tell you the truth. How's the writing going today?

— Thinking. Maybe a little, maybe a lot.
— Writing.
— Planning and / or researching.
— Editing.
— Sending things to the beta.
— Posting!
— Relaxing, taking a break, etc.
— Other stuff-ing. Look at the comment.

And I believe today's the weekly post-a-snippet day, if you're into that.

Hi folks, sneaking in while the hotel free wifi is working.

At the moment I have two weeks available for hosting check-ins and they are the 11th to the 17th and the 18th to the 24th. If you can help out at all, let me know.

Thanks

Friday morning is the worst part of Friday, IMO. It means you've got the rest of the work day to go before you get to start enjoying the weekend (if you're a 9-to-5-er). How's the writing going?

A logical question for the first day of a new month: What is your master plan for December (if you have one)?

No question today. I think it's time to get extra sleep.

Well, this one's more of an early morning post, since I'll be out and about later, but it's still morning here! How's the writing going today (... once you're up and about)?

Another easy question: Ever take advantage of a bout of insomnia to get some writing done?

And now, a proper post in the morning! I'd take a deep breath of that crisp morning air, but it smells a bit too much like the city where I live. *coughs* How's the writing going today?

Easy question today: When it comes to writing, are you more vulnerable to procrastination during the day, or during the night?

And, then, suddenly, the end of November, like – bang, zoom – it's here! o_O That's why I didn't post this earlier in the day. Kinda snuck up on me. ... Anyway! The writing! How is it?

Since I survived Black Friday here in the U.S., here's today's question: What changes, if any, do you make to your writing schedule when the dreaded holiday season arrives (if you live in a place affected by it, of course)?
