And here we are, winding down for the year! I believe we're in good shape for OneDeadPlotBunny 2017-- details in a future post. (And a most-massive thank you to 2016's moderators for everything this year. \o/)

This is a check-in post! You do not have to check in if you don't want to and there are no requirements for what you need to check in with. This is your space, so have at!

Feel free to talk about success, frustration, current projects, nagging projects, exciting projects, and everything else going on.

I've written 376 words of a new chapter. I hope to write more soon. Tonight, maybe! *crosses fingers*

I'm keeping to my 2017 goals so far - my friend and I took 52 prompts to write one per week, and I'm 2/5 of the way through monthlysupergo. Granted, neither of these is, strictly speaking, finishing my bunny list....but I'm also finishing last year's NaNoWriMo novel and editing something that I've been working on since 2009 and another thing I started in 2006, so, you know. Progress.

Progress is still progress, even if it's not 'official' -- and prompts still count, says I ;3

Got one novel into the wild (in the same year as I wrote it, even, what madness is this), the longest that I've done so far. Equinox is still being shirty but oh well ...

Laying in some potential writing plans for the year; I need to account for possible work fuckery in the future, though.

Hopefully I may have some drabbles for [community profile] monthlysupergo over the weekend! And am looking forward to [community profile] chosenbythecrystals, also --

\O/ (it's gonna look pretty runty next to Triskelion but oh well?)

Looks like a fair few things in common across the board ~?

Can't write. Too depressed. I have a couple of bingo cards, but every time I start, I think about my low hits on AO3 and Trump being sworn in and I wonder if there's any fucking point in trying.

I'm having the same reaction to a novel. I have a story that a friend wants me to write but at this point, everything feels futile.

I want to write. I just feel like it's a waste of time. Especially since I don't know if I'll survive for a year under Trump. He and his cronies don't like Social Security and Medicare, and I need both to live.

Oh, and I am fighting to pay my bills, so that's another joy.

I'm in a nearly identical situation. The Affordable Care Act is keeping me alive right now, my family is struggling financially, and I've been too depressed to write for ages. I've wanted to write, I just haven't had the energy.

I don't have any answers, but I wanted you to know that you're not alone.

Me too. I still can't believe that asshole actually got the Presidency. :( But I can't allow myself to sink into a depressive state, not over HIM.

So, I'm trying to look at it this way: In all of human history, the one thing that truly endures is our stories. Empires may crumble, entire nations and peoples may vanish, but the stories our ancestors once told each other are still with us today. As ours will be for our descendants. Our words will go on long after we are dust. A single ruler (no matter how corrupt) can't stop that.

Keep doing this thing you love. The stories we will leave behind are what makes life worth living.

I'm keeping my writing goals thus far, working on maintaining the amount of daily writing I do, so that I can complete my fanfic ideas.

It's a little easier to keep up on my fanfic now that my novel is done. I successfully posted two drabbles on my Ao3 account yesterday, and am working on the fanfic Virtual Season that's been patiently waiting in the wings. :)
