We’ve made it to Wednesday! If the first part of your week was super busy, I hope the second part provides more time and space to write.

I’ve been making super slow progress on a fic synposis. I’m trying to lay out all of its pieces before I turn it into prose, but I wish I could get to the actual writing! How do you approach projects? Are you a plotter or a pantser?

Do you typically write your stories from a particular point of view (first, second, or third person)? Do you switch it up depending on the fandom or the length of the story?

The real question of the day is what happened to Day 1. The answer: It got devoured by my search for a new tablet. -_- But I now have that, so the show may continue. What have you been doing?

— 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.

Today, being Saturday, is traditionally the day for posting snippets and the like.

Question: Do you take advantage of amnesties, extensions, etc. for fanfic challenges (like I do!), or do you prefer to hit the original deadline?

The nice thing about the end of summer is that there is still time for ice cream. It is not too late. ... What have you been doing?

Today, the reverse of the question from yesterday: Has a review or comment made you cut a story shorter than you intended?

Due to some RL commitments I've got throughout the month, I'm only able to take this coming week for hosting and at the moment I've still got the weeks of 10th to 16th and 17th to 23rd available for hosting if anyone can take one or both weeks that will be awesome.

Thanks :)

Kids are going back to school, the weather is starting to cool (here in the U.S.), and retailers are gearing up for the holidays. *shakes head* Summer turns to autumn a little too soon. What have you been doing?

The question for today is one of those either / or things: Do you reckon your word count as you go, or do you wait until a piece is finished and posted before you add the words to your total?

It's Friday, and time for a wee check in to see how everyone is doing.

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
