Hello, kids! It's weekly check-in time.

You can report in on progress, ask for advice, a prompt, or a deadline; or just vent about how your current project is going. Or whatever you need to do.

Totally optional participation topic: go to your current WIP. Find the thirty-third sentence. Post it! (If you're writing a flashfic piece, post the third sentence!)

Progress is... ehhh. With several of the things I'm working on, I'm at one of my least favourite parts - typing up the story from the handwritten draft. Boring, boring, boring. But! Still progress, at least.

Check in

33rd sentence:
"To heal them as much as possible means I need extremely fine control over my talents."

How do I count hours editing someone else's work?

A Due South Fraser/Kowalski soul mates AU casefic. :)

Call Ray a sap, but after having his life torn apart by Stella and a roomful of lawyers, Ray was warmed up to the concept of his soul mate still being out there and needing him a whole lot quicker than he was willing to admit aloud.

balsamandash: text icon; quote from Her Story: "And all these stories we've been telling each other? Just that. Stories." (writing] all these stories)
From: [personal profile] balsamandash
33rd sentence, for an MCU fic I was writing for a psychic wolves fest and missed the deadline on:
It takes her a while to pay attention to anything but the wolf in her lap, but when she looks up, Michael has a pup in his arms, looking just as stunned and excited as she imagines she does.

I am trying to refind my motivation after missing the deadline for said fest. I was really excited about the fic and I'd rather not wait another year to finish it, but my momentum fell apart and I can't seem to get it back.

On the bright side, I've named a whole bunch of original characters the past couple of weeks, which was progress.

(...This is also the first time I've managed to reply to one of these. So uh. Hi!)

33rd sentence: She had always loved his hair- wild, unpredictable, and boyish, like him.

I completed a bingo on card that I'd had for 3 years -- that felt wonderful! I also let go of a card that I'd taken in December but didn't see fitting into my schedule this year - as the bingo runs twice a year, there really isn't a point to hanging onto a card that I had completed zero fills for ...

Hooray for bingo completion! I went back and looked at one of mine from like three years ago that I never managed to complete, but nothing sparked me. Maybe if I come back to it in another year or so!

Third sentence of flashfic for due South, Fraser/Kowalski: [Ray] said some things that he honestly meant, and it seemed like fun at the time, but it was honestly a mistake that he said them in what Fraser called “polite company”.

(And I just wish I were as far along as the thirty-third sentence in one of my meant-to-be longer WIP's.)

From: [personal profile] ride_4ever
Trying. I have had a number of readers say "...but what happens when Ray gets back home...." and I am trying to get him home and back with Fraser. (But I have no sense of whether I will finish this one before or after something else on the DWIPL.)

DWIPL = Damn WIP List

christ, the monologue is finished! or at least draft 1 is finished. needed a minute away from words, so this week has been full of drawings, some of which ended up on instagram, some of which didn't.

thirty-third sentence from my next WIP: The first coherent word out of his mouth.

st_aurafina: Harold Finch's face (POI: Harold)
From: [personal profile] st_aurafina
I'm still piecing all my scraps and snippets together. And I think I want to change tense - I started in present because Sentinel/Guide stuff feels like it should be immediate, but it's hard to sustain. Ugh.

Snippet of POI Sentinel/Guide AU, not very dramatic, but it's where I landed for the 33rd sentence: Nathan sits down to face him, with a sea of papers between them.

marginaliana: Buddy the dog carries Bobo the toy (Default)
From: [personal profile] marginaliana
33rd sentence of current chapter: But he'd put himself first, had valued his feelings more than the mission.

In terms of progress, I've written a chapter and a half on my priority fic, which comes out to about 6k. Which is really good! I'm skipping around a bit from here, though, because there is one section that's a villain POV and those are really hard, so I'm trying to do all the easy bits first.

I've also done a bit of work on one of my non-priority fics, because, you know. When the inspiration comes, you've got to go with it!

Third sentence:
- 'Luckily, there were ever so many distractions from those black moods.'

Tackling a challenge week on [community profile] fic_promptly despite or maybe because of my work situation taking a permanent nosedive in two weekends. Also making plans to keep that permanent nosedive from completely deepsixing my ability to make things. It's not going to win, damnit.

Didn't manage to write #3 or #4 in time for the challenge deadlines, though I did do an additional short podfic for one of the challenges instead.

Poked at the Brunch fic some...I can see the light at the end of the tunnel, but this fic is ridiculously annoying to write for the short fluffy piece that it is.

I'm going on a trip without internet next week, so I've pasted my notes for fic #3 and for the big chase scene of Victoria's Daughter into a notebook to see if I can get anything done on them in longhand. It'll be a great experiment! (Or, I'll be too busy vacationing to bother writing...we'll see.)

I don't write linearly, so Victoria's Daughter does not get to 33 consecutive sentences before there's a ***text to be inserted here** marker, but here's the 33rd sentence of written text:

“No, no, I’m fine, I just—I don’t have any American money, and if I miss the bus—my aunt doesn’t have a phone, she’ll go crazy. . .”

gramarye1971: Viktor Nikiforov from Yuri!!! on Ice, soaking in the onsen (YoI: Onsen Viktor)
From: [personal profile] gramarye1971
I've been totally derailed from writing this week by journal-based RP threads, which is not good for fic production but is still keeping the creative juices flowing! I do want to get a little more done on the transition-to-combat scene from one of my two main WIPs this weekend.

33rd sentence from ridiculous magical boys missing episode fic: A calm, pleasant voice cut into Nakamura's rant, slicing through his words like a knife in the dark.

And 33rd sentence from snarky anime demon crossover fic: There was also a matter of principle at stake: he hated having secrets waved in front of his nose, taunting him with the very fact of their presence.

darthneko: purple cartoon bunny (Default)
From: [personal profile] darthneko
33rd sentence: There was a ringing in his ears, like the muted rumble of a distant avalanche, and dimly he heard Aysa call his name, felt her claws catch at his wrist and shoulder, pressing him back to the seat behind him.

I've been writing regularly! \o/ I'm 5k into the fic I'm on right now, which is one of the ones originally on the bunny list and not something new. Two chapters down, hopefully only one more to go. Maybe two. And then it ends on a cliffhanger (due to canon events) and I need to start on the next one. Averaging 500 words a day, still, but hit a high of 700 this morning.

From: [personal profile] lost_spook
I posted a two-year old piece off my list!

3rd sentence (because while my main WIP's not flashfic, I posted Ch1 and there's not much typed up of Ch2 yet), so the first paragraph (becayse the third sentence makes little sense on its own, from a Sapphire & Steel fic: It wasn’t everyone else who had gone, Jack realised as he got his breath back. He was on his own and in what must be one of the upstairs rooms. It was small and bare of furniture, barring one old chest of drawers in the corner. He crossed over to it and the floorboards creaked alarmingly. He hoped they were still safe.

Glee (Rachel/Finn): "Hey in there, baby girl," he whispered, before pulling reluctantly away.
Glee (Santana & Finn convo, Santana's POV): Santana could be vindictive, but she shuddered to think of Hudson-Berry spawn with Drizzle as their names, and needed to insure that didn't happen.
Glee (Carole & Finn convo): "Mom, he used to look at me like I was the best thing in the world," he said, pouting majorly.

From: [personal profile] lassarina
I'm not making as much progress as I'd like, in that I've made basically none this week, but I've recovered from the Extraordinary Busy that is February and I'm starting to feel the nibbles of interest in the corners of my brain again, so here's hoping I get stuff done on the weekend.

I've done more handwriting and idea development than I have actual writing. Hoping to put some of those ideas to a document this afternoon though!

Porn Battle (of a sort) in progress. Still in the "thinking about which prompts to pick" phase, hoping it does not last for the entire event.

Here is the third line from the last piece I posted, since I do not think I have any immediate WIPs in my tray: "Need to tell Wade not to start fights in the bar any more," Weasel grumbled, stacking unused bricks on a small cart that he had borrowed from the kitchen.

From: [personal profile] milady_dragon
I'm a little late to the party this week, it seems. LOL!

33rd sentence: "The man gave her a disingenuous smile."

I'm up to 11,733 words in the fic I've decided to focus on. It's going pretty well so far, although I was on vacation and not a lot got done. Another reason I'm a little late this week with the check in...
