[Check-In] & Deadlines

Since we're at the last post for the month, it's time for list revision. You are free to look over your list and remove anything that you've realized isn't working for you. There is nothing wrong with keeping all your bunnies, of course, but it is also okay to let go. We all grow and change and moving on is a thing that happens.


This is also a weekly check-in! You do not have to check in, of course, but if you would like to comment on the last week, feel free!


Deadlines! I always offer to give deadlines and I mean it! The few times I've given deadlines to people, I've put a sticky note up on the wall by my desk and done a couple PMs as reminders. Other options include a sticky 'deadlines!' post on the community if members would be comfortable with that. (Or any combination of things...)

Do you have something you think you'd be more motivated to work on if you had a deadline for it?

If so, mention it in your comment, when you'd like your deadline to be (or I can pick something), and how you'd prefer it to be administered (community sticky, private PMs/sticky note, other, all of the above?), etc. There would, of course, be no penalty or guilt if the deadline doesn't happen. It's a hectic time of year for a lot of people and I only want to offer gentle nudges in the rear, not stress.

One (slightly late) Weekly Check-in!

I hope everyone's doing well. I've had a busy week, and spent yesterday totally wiped out with an awful migraine, so. I have not been very productive this week. I haven't even thought about writing. But there you go. That's how good my brain has been this week.

So I hope you've had a better week than me. Share your successes with us, or your failures. Let us know if you want any prompts, advice, or anything else.

Bonus prompt: Ten song ficlets! If you're stuck, put your music on shuffle, take a fic you're stuck on, and write something for the length of the first ten songs, just to see if that gets your inspiration going. Feel free to share with us in the comments, if you like.

An introduction

Hello, I'm MythicMistress. I have a large backlog of fanfic ideas and am looking for help with motivation and general support. I have a big list of ideas/premises posted to my journal.

Oh dear...I completely forgot about those kink meme prompts I expressed interest in months ago, probably shouldn't have showed interest in that femslash prompt there...

Revenge of the Premise Bunnies

I thought I'd resurrect an old discussion here. Two years ago, [personal profile] kalloway made a post discussing the differences between a premise bunny and a plot bunny.

Long story short: A premise bunny is a basic idea that lacks the plotty goodness of a proper plot bunny. It's the germination of an idea that resembles a plot bunny, but without having the faintest clue where it's supposed to end up.

I do have quite a few premise bunnies myself. But I'd rather hear about you guys. What's a pet premise bunny for you, and how are you working (or not working) on growing it into a proper plot bunny?

Weekly Check-in!

Hello, it is time for another weekly check-in! How's everyone doing this week?

This is a bit late, because my life has been taken over by Tiny Niece and birthdays and Easter, and this week has been way too busy. But if I have achieved anything in the last week, it is finally finishing the Pasithea's City draft, so now it runs from beginning to end. :D Now I just need to finish the other two novels. I may not get all three done this year, but Camp NaNo will help me get a chunk of work done I wouldn't otherwise do, so that's better than nothing.

Mostly, I have been doing world-building and working out timelines, which I needed to do in order to keep on writing. With three novels all converging into the same timeline, I really did need to sit down and figure out how they all fit together, and what I need to work on next, so at least I'll have somewhere to go now that that's out of the way. I do not recommend trying to reconcile three different calendars based on three different methods (Gregorian, stellar, lunar), it is an exercise in yelling at ancient Greeks for not using a more consistent calendar system.

I have a few other things I still want to work on, little chaptered bits and pieces I still need to finish, but nothing is set in stone for this weekend. Tiny Niece is coming over on Sunday, so there will be one more weekend of busy-ness before my life is back to normal. I still have managed about 8.6k for Camp NaNo so far, which I'm pretty happy with, all things considered.

Share your trials and triumphs with us below., and how you've been going this month. Feel free to share the 4th last sentence you wrote last week, if you like.
