Hi! Welcome to [community profile] 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.

Make a list.

Of every fic/art/icon/whatever-bunny you have that you would like to write/create sometime in the foreseeable future. This includes bingo cards, big bangs, comment fics, exchanges, random plotbunnies, sequels, etc. This can also include other projects; I know people have added in things like knitting, semester projects, etc.

Detail it if you want to. You can be as vague as you like. No one ever has to see your list but you and if you know what 'Cabbage No. 2' means, that's good enough.

Do it either in your own journal or in a paper notebook or in the comments or whatever. In the past, I've used one of those fancy blank notebooks I bought with high hopes and then found too intimidating to write in. They're really good at holding lists. Quite a few people also use spreadsheets and GoogleDocs.

You can organize however you'd like - ficlets together, epics together, or by fandom, or by what they're for or when they're due... Or don't organize at all. But one list, in one place.

If a single listing for Super Mega-Epic Fic feels a little intimidating, it's fine to break complicated stuff down by chapter or even by section. Super Mega-Epic Fic, Chapter 3 is easier for me to think about, even if it means immediately adding Super Mega-Epic Fic, Chapter 4...

Take your time. Look through old notebooks, textfiles, e-mail, journal entries, and that dusty back-corner of your brain... Round up everything.

And hang onto that list. You'll need it.

[For everyone rolling along from last year, this is also a check-in post if you want it to be!]
