It's time to sign up for the August 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 July.



  • 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.)

I'm having knee surgery in a few days, and I don't know how long I'll be away from my computer with the post-surgery rehab. However, I think it's safe to say I'll be home and settled by the end of August, for sure, so sign me up for check-ins for the week of Aug 27-Sept 2. If I'm available before that, I'll let you know!

Looks like Samuraiter wants the same week I was intending to take (see below), so I can switch and take the week prior to that if you want (Aug 20-26). Either way, I'm good to go now!

My apologies for not paying attention. It's ... been kind of a month, I'll say that.

I can do the daily check-in posts for the week of August 27 to September 1.

What you're looking for from the challenge: The beauty of routine.

What you could offer other participants yourself: Beta duty, cheerleading, and those check-in posts.
