Hi! Welcome to onedeadplotbunny
2017! There's a sort of basic FAQ on the profile page, but if you have more specific questions, feel free to ask them here.
If you're joining at a time that's not the first week of February, that's okay! You can join at any time, post at any time, etc. Go through the archives at your own pace and don't feel stressed. There is no 'catching up' to do.
This is a motivation/support community first and foremost. I don't want anyone to ever feel bad about their backlog/signups/whatnot. I don't want anyone to feel that they have to clear out their backlog instantly, or anything like that. I don't want anyone feeling stressed, even though there might be a few tasks in the beginning that can be stressful (or fun, depending on mindset - I like the fun).
But you can do it! You really can.
Feel free to make an introduction post. Feel free not to. Feel free to ask for help unsticking a plot. Feel free to post resources. Feel free to post success! Feel free to commiserate (because sometimes you just need to wonder out loud why you sighed up for the XYZ Bingo again even though you've never written for a single square)... This is everyone's space.
Weekly check-ins, once we get on schedule for the year, will be ~Wednesdays. For the first week or so of the community, things will be very busy. Besides this post and our first activity, a lot of people choose to introduce themselves. You don't have to make an intro post, of course, just like you don't have to participate in activities, discussion, or check-ins. Or you can introduce yourself in June, if you'd like. It is all good.
