I updated a WIP I hadn't updated since September. I feel pretty good about that. :)

Oh boy - picked up 2 new bingo cards but I'm feeling inspired by the prompts ...

I didn't make my goal last month of finishing my novel revision, so that is now my goal for Camp NaNo. I'm doing pretty well (even if I'm counting last month's progress). I'm at 98,313 out of an estimated 120,000, but I'll need to do a lot of rewrites on this back half. My wc goal will definitely go up before the month is over.

I made a lot of progress this week! I have pretty much outlined the rest of the story, which is great because now when I get to a scene I actually have a sense of what needs to happen and what is happening simultaneously (this is multiple POV, so I'm jumping around a lot). Now I just have, uh. Fourteen more sections to write. But each section is only 750 words or so, so that's really not too overwhelming.

I'm thinking about picking up a new big bang. I haven't done one of them for a long time now, and it just sounds like fun. I have a month to decide, but I really want to go for it. I'm usually a pretty good performer in challenges like that.

You should do it! I really like big bangs since it's a challenge to really develop something more fully.

It really has been ages since I've done a big bang, and I think I'll take the plunge. :)

From: [personal profile] lost_spook
Doing all right! I've picked up another bingo, but bingos are really good motivation, I find, and very laid back, so that's not really an additional thing.

Doing a writing meme for exercise and having fun all round. I do need to have another look at my overdue Fandom Stocking (2015!) fic, though! (Also fun!)

I'm losing motivation to finish my WIP. At what point do you decide when to call it quits?

I tend to think that if it stops being fun, then I stop writing it (but I'm stubborn so I don't always stick to that, of course!). You could try coming at the fic from a different direction to see if that helps - skip over the part that isn't interesting and write a later section, maybe?

I'll stalled in one thing, but I'm picking up steam in another thing, so I'm counting it as a win of sorts.

I have been ignoring my WIP list (and this comm) because I've had deadlines on other fics. But now all the deadlines are out of the way and I am hoping to ease myself in by starting on the fics that are closest to being finished.

From: [personal profile] darthneko
I've started posting a fic! Four chapters, fic finished at 18k, and I'm posting slooooowly due to the fact that I'm including a fanart painted header at the top of each chapter. This also gives me time to go back, edit, and make sure I haven't messed up my timeline anywhere.

Next fic in the series is sitting at just over 1k, should hopefully not be more than 3k (it's an interlude) and I'm not sure about how to end it to tie things together for the actual sequel. Hmmmm. Jury is still out and pondering - angst? Or cliffhanger? Or BOTH?

Hi! I haven't been around here in months because I haven't done any writing in months (yikes) but here I am again now because in the past couple weeks I've started to feel like writing again. I haven't picked any actual projects back up yet but I've been thinking about my characters a lot more and browsing [community profile] rainbowlists for inspiration.

I picked up a new bingo card ([community profile] origfic_bingo) and, to my own surprise, a new prompt table challenge ([community profile] femslash100100). Might not be a big help to my assorted WIPs, but it will definitely give me fuel for getting things done.

I've made good progress on my two wip. One's a shameless kinky porn about to reach 8k. Another is a pre-canon non-sexual indenured servitude fic. Hopefully I'll finish them both by next Monday.

Optional challenge:

I'm not sure it will make the final cut, but here's some description I just came across:


It was like I was a magician and my goo-stained t-shirt was the curtain behind which my assistant disappeared.

I'm getting writing done, but seldom even able to START doing so before 9pm. My 'normal' bedtime used to be 10pm. Now I feel lucky to get in bed by 2am.
I have to fix this.
