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 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?

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

(Let's do this a couple hours early...)

Just a reminder - this is your community, too. Feel free to use it to ask for advice, vent, commiserate, celebrate, etc.


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.)

Weekly check-in time! How is your current project going? Need a deadline to keep you going? Need to brainstorm, or a prompt? Ask away!

Totally optional sort-of discussion topic: without explanation or context, post a sentence from your current project involving the word "light."

It's time once again for our weekly check-in. How has everyone's week been? Any deadlines looming or brainstorming you need to do?

I've been a little unproductive this week, but I have figured out a plot point I was stuck on, so that's been helpful. I've added about 1500 words now, which is better than nothing.

Your optional task this week is to attempt to summarise one of your WIPs in a haiku.

For the novel I'm currently working on, mine would be:
To follow a god
With strangers through barren lands
A city is lost.

(And my sincere apologies for being several days late. My only excuse is that last week, my brain was kind of checked-out from the before and after of meeting my personal hero at MegaCon. *g*)

 Hello, ODPBers! 

Late check in is late because RL hit me pretty hard the last fortnight and I am still recovering, but I hope your writing has gone better than mine. I was aiming to write every day this month, but I've fallen behind, and now I'm playing catch-up. I did manage a couple of thousand words on a couple of my current projects, so I'm happy with that. 

Let us know how you've been going. Have you had any successes you'd like to report? Have you gathered up more bunnies you don't need? Do you need any brainstorming, beta request, or research help? Any deadlines coming up? 

Our discussion topic today is about music. Do you make soundtracks for your stories to keep you going as you're working? Do certain songs remind you of things you've written, even though it might be years since they were written? Do you have any good writing songs or playlists? Or do you prefer to write to silence or instrumental music instead?

Bonus discussion topic: do you prefer writing stories inspired by another person's or community's prompts, or would you rather work on projects that come purely from your own ideas?

Welcome to the second week of April, ODPBers! I hope your writing week has been better than mine. When I haven't been mentally busy with work, I have managed all of 800 words on a novel I am determined to finish this year. But at least it's better than no progress. I also have another story I'm pondering, but it requires a bit of finagling to make it work the way I want it to work, and so it might have to just stew in my head until the set-up becomes plausible enough to start work on it.

Let us know how you're going, whether you've finished anything, need some help brainstorming, or picked up a few more bunnies you definitely don't need (this is me, hi!). Even if you've only written 800 words all week like I have, it's better than nothing. Celebrate the successes, no matter how small they may seem.

This week's optional discussion topic is about world-building: is it the thing you love most about writing, or would you rather just get the story down, and worry about the details later? How do you go about it, and how do you juggle several different worlds at once, and keep everything straight in your head? Do you have any favourite world-building resources you'd like to share with us?
