I started up a 'mirror' community over on Imzy, if anyone is over there and wants to hang out. I'm going for a slightly-less-structured version of [community profile] onedeadplotbunny over there with a broader project reach, but who knows what will happen?

(if you don't have an imzy account yet, the site is in a closed-beta and will require an invite. there should be a request button on the community and I'll approve/send asap)

Hello, all! This is your weekly check-in!

So how goes your writing this week, folks? Any deadlines accomplished? Any deadlines looming that you need a nudge on?

(Not my usual spot, but I noticed there's been another couple of weeks of silence, so just thought I'd toss this up while I was thinking about it.)

Weekly check-in time! How is your current project going? Need a deadline to keep you going? Need to brainstorm, or a prompt? Ask away!

Totally optional sort-of discussion topic: without explanation or context, post a sentence from your current project involving the word "light."

Hello again. I'm sure at least a few of you remember me! It's been months since I last visited. ^^; Really long story short; back in January of this year, I noticed something that was really wrong, that at least CBS, ABC, and NBC News did investigative reports about, before all of mainstream media news had went quiet after this government agency (FEMA) got busted for trying to cover-up their past rotten scheme. They were doing nothing about the thousands of innocent people become seriously ill due to long exposure of formaldehyde from the trailers FEMA gave to them. The reports were aired in 2007. I saw a documentary on the aftermath of this failed cover-up, uploaded on YouTube in late August of last year. I looked, and looked, and looked but there was nothing on mainstream media about the researcher and medical anthropologist. Nicholas Shapiro is his name. He tracked the trailers down and helped people who were sill living in them, uninformed of unsafe formaldehyde levels.

That's when my journey to gathering knowledge and helping to influence major positive change toward humanity began.

Along the way, I've written a bunch of poetry! Some of it's been political satire, and some of them just fall into a miscellaneous category. If my Kingdom Hearts muses are still interested, then sure, I'll go back to focusing on an all new fan-fiction - a really interesting and powerful concept of one at that.

I'll share my poem about the three certain muses of mine. All the many others in Nexus Head-space must have been busying themselves with things. lol

Hello, all! This is your (aargh, belated again) weekly check-in!

So how goes your writing this week, folks? Any deadlines accomplished? Any deadlines looming that you need a nudge on?

It's time once again for our weekly check-in. How has everyone's week been? Any deadlines looming or brainstorming you need to do?

I've been a little unproductive this week, but I have figured out a plot point I was stuck on, so that's been helpful. I've added about 1500 words now, which is better than nothing.

Your optional task this week is to attempt to summarise one of your WIPs in a haiku.

For the novel I'm currently working on, mine would be:
To follow a god
With strangers through barren lands
A city is lost.

Time for the weekly check-in, all you lovely people. How's it going? Do you need some help brainstorming, or encouragement with a deadline? Do you have special writing plans for the summer, or is it more of business as usual?

Totally optional sort-of discussion topic: without explanation or context, give us the last sentence you've written on your current project.

(And my sincere apologies for being several days late. My only excuse is that last week, my brain was kind of checked-out from the before and after of meeting my personal hero at MegaCon. *g*)

 Hello, ODPBers! 

Late check in is late because RL hit me pretty hard the last fortnight and I am still recovering, but I hope your writing has gone better than mine. I was aiming to write every day this month, but I've fallen behind, and now I'm playing catch-up. I did manage a couple of thousand words on a couple of my current projects, so I'm happy with that. 

Let us know how you've been going. Have you had any successes you'd like to report? Have you gathered up more bunnies you don't need? Do you need any brainstorming, beta request, or research help? Any deadlines coming up? 

Our discussion topic today is about music. Do you make soundtracks for your stories to keep you going as you're working? Do certain songs remind you of things you've written, even though it might be years since they were written? Do you have any good writing songs or playlists? Or do you prefer to write to silence or instrumental music instead?

Bonus discussion topic: do you prefer writing stories inspired by another person's or community's prompts, or would you rather work on projects that come purely from your own ideas?

Welcome to the second week of April, ODPBers! I hope your writing week has been better than mine. When I haven't been mentally busy with work, I have managed all of 800 words on a novel I am determined to finish this year. But at least it's better than no progress. I also have another story I'm pondering, but it requires a bit of finagling to make it work the way I want it to work, and so it might have to just stew in my head until the set-up becomes plausible enough to start work on it.

Let us know how you're going, whether you've finished anything, need some help brainstorming, or picked up a few more bunnies you definitely don't need (this is me, hi!). Even if you've only written 800 words all week like I have, it's better than nothing. Celebrate the successes, no matter how small they may seem.

This week's optional discussion topic is about world-building: is it the thing you love most about writing, or would you rather just get the story down, and worry about the details later? How do you go about it, and how do you juggle several different worlds at once, and keep everything straight in your head? Do you have any favourite world-building resources you'd like to share with us?

Check-in time! How are your projects going? Any deadlines you need to meet? Any prompts you'd like to request?

Optional discussion topic: Share and/or talk about your first sentence. How does it set the stage? Do you like short and pithy or long and rambly? Do you have a stock first sentence* just to get yourself going, or do you rewrite it until it's perfect, or do you wait to start the story until you know what that first sentence will be?


* No lie, for a while I started every Avengers fic with "It was all Tony's fault." It only stayed on one, though :D.

Hello, all! This is your weekly check-in!

So how goes your writing this week, folks? Any deadlines accomplished? Any deadlines looming that you need a nudge on?

As a bonus discussion topic which I have no ulterior motive about: do prompts and challenges ever (even if pleasantly so) get in the way of bigger projects you really want/need to be working on? What do you do when the latest challenge from a weekly prompt comm is twisting your arm, even though you had perfectly good intentions of working on the next chapter of that novel?

This is your weekly check-in post. How are your works in progress coming along? Any bunnies put to bed, or are new ones popping up?

I meant to get this post up on Wednesday, but this week has been crazy for me. I'm really sorry about that. It's the week before spring break for me, and as if being sick wasn't enough, my professors decided to make sure we all came to class this week by assigning papers and giving exams.

Camp NaNo starts up in April. Has anyone signed up, or thought about it? If anyone is interested in forming a cabin group or two, we could do that.

This week's (totally optional) discussion topic is about bunny selection. What makes a bunny something that gets written, or at least started in some fashion? Do you pick and choose which ones you work with, or is it more a matter of bunnies biting your ankles until you give them attention?

Greetings, fellow bunny killers! It's the second week of March and it's time for another check-in! How has your week been? Have you made any progress, or picked up any new bunnies you didn't want to adopt? Any challenges due that you're working your way through?

As for me, I've been sick this week with a pesky cold, so my productivity has not been great. I've done a little editing, and a lot of blogging, and I've outlined a book, but that's about it. I also started a new story, because what I need right now is a new story to work on, right?

This week's discussion topic is about writer's block, and going back to old WIPs. Not every story can be ressurrected, which I know only too well. Is there a point for you when you've tried to finish a WIP and it's just not working, and it ends up in the dreaded 'never going to be finished' pile? Have you had to set aside, unfinished, a story you really loved, but lost inspiration for, that may never end up finished?

Check-in!

(Eeeps! My apologies that this is so late. New co-mod still trying to get the schedule into her head in the midst of craziness...)

This is your weekly check-in!

Yes, we're a week behind, but I hope you'll forgive your new mods for the slight delay while we organise ourselves.

Anyway, hello! Welcome to [community profile] onedeadplotbunny for 2016. I'm one of your shiny new mods, [personal profile] sashataakheru , or Sasha for short, and we're here to encourage you to slay those bunnies and get them off your WIP list.

For anyone new to the bunnycomm this year, welcome. There's a brief FAQ in the profile, but if you have any questions, feel free to ask them here. Your other shiny mods for the year are [personal profile] aurordark , [personal profile] misslucyjane , and [personal profile] jordannamorgan , and they should be around soon to introduce themselves.

This community is all about motivation and support, and there's no pressure to finish absolutely everything you set out to achieve this year. Anything you can knock off and finish is a win. Anything you write another chapter on is a win. Even if you only write another 1000 words on a WIP you started 6 years ago, that's a win. So bring your bunnies to the table, and let's see how much we can achieve this year. :D

Throughout the year, we'll be having challenges and prompts and motivational posts to help spur you along, and we'll be having weekly check-ins to help you share your progress, or lack thereof. Check-ins, at this stage, will probably be on Wednesdays as they have been in the past, but we'll make a post confirming that once we've all sorted out our schedules. (...Like I said, we're a week behind. How is it February already idek.)

So, welcome to the new year, whether you've done this before, or you're brand new to the community. Feel free to introduce yourself, if you like, and whether you've already got your bunny plan sorted for the year. Let's kick this year off, and get cracking on those bunnies!
