linaewen: Girl Writing (Girl Writing)
[personal profile] linaewen
Hello on Sunday!  It's a new week, which brings an opportunity to start fresh in getting some writing done.  What kind of a writing day has it been today -- or yesterday, if today hasn't gotten going yet?
  •     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
Sunday Discussion:  Sometimes inspiration strikes and an idea must be written down immediately.  What are some of the things you've grabbed to make note of a creative idea you didn't want to lose?

Discussion. The month. As it's the last day of month (already?), have you met any of the goals you set? did you have too many pesky distractions? something else?

Sorry I missed yesterday, between a 14 hour shift and an injured wrist I crashed when I eventually got home last night. How is the writing going today? What about the last two days?

Discussion: deadlines. Are you good at meeting deadlines for challenges? Do you request extensions? Do you prefer to work at your own pace?

Saturday. Good weather where I am, for once. Good day for reading. But was it a good day for writing? What have you done today?

— Posting!
— Relaxing, taking a break, etc.

One more question before we get to Snippet Day: Since a story summary is kind of a snippet in and of itself, how do you go about crafting one?

It's time to sign up for the June 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 May.



  • 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.)
