Hello on Thursday!  I'm out for the rest of the week after today, so I am declaring the weekend early.  Looking back at the day today -- or yesterday, if today hasn't gotten going yet -- how did it go?
  •     I thought about my fic once or twice
  •     I wrote
  •     I did some planning and/or research
  •     I edited
  •     I've sent my fic off to my beta
  •     I posted today!
  •     I'm taking a break
  •     I did something else that I'll talk about in a comment
Looking forward, how are you planning to spend your weekend?
  •     I'm going to make up for not writing all week by having a writing marathon
  •     I'm going to keep writing at my current rate and see how it goes
  •     I have other plans, but I might have time to get some writing in
  •     I'm going to take a break from writing

Wednesday Discussion - Errors, brought to us by the Fanfic Flamingo: Sometimes errors occur as we write that we miss until later, and then it's a huge burden to try to go back and repair the damage.  Does this happen to you?  How do you deal with it, and how do you prevent it?

Discussion - Today is Independence Day in the U.S., a national holiday.  When it's a holiday, are you able to get any writing done, or does it end up being too busy with celebrations and family to get any writing time in?

At the moment I've got the following weeks still available for hosting the daily check ins.

I've got the second half of the 9th to 15th available - [personal profile] linaewen can only do a few days early on that week, and it would be a split week in that respect. I've also got 16th to 22nd and 30th to 5th available as well, those are full weeks.

If you can help out at all, let me know.

Thanks :)

It's a new week and a new month, a chance to rejoice in what you accomplished last month as well as a chance for a fresh start if June didn't go so well for writing.

Discussion: resources. What are your favourite resources for writing? (this can be anything - software, assistive tech, recurring challenges and exchanges, comms etc) also if you think it would be useful to have, I can make a sticky with resources and try to keep it up to date especially the comms side of it.
