So, that list you made last week? Go ahead and grab it/load it/bring it up in another window.

If it's making you want to run screaming in terror to live in an abandoned missile silo with nary a typewriter in sight, I completely understand. If it's actually not that bad, well-organized and manageable, well, that's fine too. I am, as always, a little envious of anyone falling into the latter category.

However... don't run screaming. Because it's not a scary list of things you have to do.

It's an amazing list of awesome stories you are going to write/videos you are going to make/crafts you are going to craft/etc.

Seriously, look at all the cool stuff you have planned!

If you have a list so astounding and cool that you have no idea where to start (or perhaps you want to work on all the things), take a couple of minutes and look it over.

Some of you have mentioned exchanges/fests/things-with-deadlines. While there may be something far more sparkly attempting to get your attention, stick with your deadline-shiny! I know it's hard, but I also know you can do it!

If you don't have any deadlines and have time to work on something, work on the first thing that jumps out at you. While you work on it, the rest of the list doesn't exist. You're not neglecting all those other things; they are perfectly content to wait.


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! If you want to introduce yourself and weren't sure you wanted to do it in an individual post, feel free to use the comments. If you have any other questions or, well, anything, feel free to use the comments as well. ^_^


If you have a deadline coming up, you can do it! If you need a deadline, feel free to ask!

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!]

I didn't realize I'd missed last week-- whoops! Since there's an extra Wednesday this month, let's have the Check-In post a smidge early and use it for general November-End/December-Start things.

I think by now my thoughts on the holidays are pretty clear-- do what you can do when you can, but the holiday season gets hectic and it's okay. Good luck with everything. ^_^

I know the world is a little weird right now and holiday-hectic might be setting in. Do what you can when you can and don't worry too much.

 Hello, fellow writers! This is your weekly check-in, so feel free to let us know how you've gone this week, and/or vent about the US election, either will do. (This Australian hopes you are all okay.)

I've been busy with family and NaNoWriMo for the past couple of weeks, so my bunnies have been somewhat neglected of late. But I am up to 17.2k words for NaNo, and for some reason, my novel has become a Titans vs Olympians redux death match I wonder where I am getting this inspiration from. :/ :/ :/ So that's ... an unexpected turn of events. But I'll run with it. Sure! let's see where this takes me.

At least I'm ahead of where I'm meant to be, and it's better than being stuck, so. I am very much pantsing this novel, so it is going in weird directions, but it's okay! I have three characters now! I started with one! And now an epic mythical war that the gods might lose, but hey, it's getting the words down so I don't much care right now. I have other things I'd like to work on but they're not high on the priority list while NaNo's going on. But once December hits, the plan is for another chapter of a rewrite project, and to finish off the other novels I didn't pick for NaNo. One is very close to being a finished first draft if I could only get them bloody moving, so. I'd like that done by the end of the year so I can then spend next year editing it wooooo. 

Is everyone else having a productive time? Are your projects coming together? If you're also doing NaNoWriMo, what projects are you working on, and how well is it going for you? 

Optional writing prompt: We've all got WIPs that have been sitting around for ages. If you've managed to finish one, and you're particularly proud of it for whatever reason, tell us about it! Let's share our successes, and the good things we've achieved, and what it took to get them done. Feel free to share excerpts if you like.

This is your weekly check-in, totally optional and for whatever writing topic you desire. For instance, you can ask for deadlines, prompts, or plotting help; or you can vent or celebrate how your latest project is going.

(Please forgive my lateness. I had minor surgery earlier today and this slipped my mind until my reminder app did its thing.)

Optional topic: without context or explanation, post a sentence from your current project using the word "rain."

I have a take-home test that I can thankfully finish in class today because I didn't have time to work on it...

Hello, everyone! This is your (slightly belated) weekly check-in post. I apologize for being two days late, but I was unlucky enough to catch a nice flu bug that's going around town. :( I haven't been able to get much writing done myself because of that, so I'm hoping you guys have had more luck than me lately.

How is everyone doing with their bunnies? Right now mine seem to be breeding. *sigh*

Since I'll actually have some free time this November instead of prepping for finals, I'm thinking of signing up for NaNoWriMo, and actually prepping in October. I'm actually not sure how to prep, since I've really prepped before. Should be interesting.

Anyway, please feel free to check in, or not- no pressure. We're here to help.

Optional discussion question: I may have asked something like this in the past, but I have a bit of brain fog. Do you have a method for deciding if a bunny is going to be written or finished, or is it different with each one?
sashataakheru: (Default)

Hello, fellow bunny-killers, long time no see. *waves*

Life has been busy lately, but I've managed to get a bit of writing done in spite of it all. I've signed up for Spook Me ([personal profile] spook_me ), which is my favourite Hallowe'en ficathon, and the only time of the year when I will legit attempt to write horror, even though I am terrible at it. I just have so much fun with Spook Me, and the prompts they send me are always top notch. They never fail to inspire me.

This year, I've decided to pick up a very old zombie AU wip-of-a-plot-bunny that's taken on several iterations over its long life. I'm hoping it'll finally get written - and finished - this time round. I've also decided to be brave and sign up for two fics, just because another ghost fic idea kept pestering me, and now it's basically staring at me, challenging me to not finish it because it won't be very long but oh gods it's a bit intimidating trying to make sure it works the way I want it to work. D:

I know Yuletide's just around the corner, too, though I've never participated. My fandoms are all too small for Yuletide. /fandom of one problems Is anyone going to participate this year, or for any other challenges that are coming up? Anyone planning to do NaNoWriMo?

Your optional prompt for this week is: What's the longest time it's taken you to finish a WIP? I think my record is five years, and it was for a oneshot. I originally handwrote half-a-draft on a piece of paper, then lost it, then found it, then kept losing it, until I finally just sat down and typed it again from scratch a couple of years ago to fill a bingo square, just so it would stop bugging me. At least it finally got finished? XD

It is a new month! It is time, if you need or want to revise your list, to revise your list! There is nothing wrong with keeping all your bunnies, but it is also okay to let go.


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!


If you have a deadline coming up, you can do it! If you need a deadline, feel free to ask!

Hello, all! This is your weekly check-in!

So how goes your writing this week, folks? Any deadlines accomplished? Any deadlines looming that you need a nudge on?

(Not my usual spot, but I noticed there's been another couple of weeks of silence, so just thought I'd toss this up while I was thinking about it.)
