Another hurricane. And another. And another. My heart is with you if you are in path of any of them. ... Hurricanes aside, what have you been doing today?

— Thinking. Maybe a little, maybe a lot.
— Writing.
— Planning and / or researching.
— Editing.
— Sending things to the beta.
— Posting!
— Relaxing, taking a break, etc.
— Other stuff-ing. Look at the comment.

A relevant question: How many different ways do you back up or save your writing for the long term?

I am going to use the Force here: You did notice that I missed a check-in for yesterday. *waves hand* There. Now! Let us continue. I will be your host for the rest of this month, and I look forward to ending September on a high note. What have you been doing today?

— Thinking. Maybe a little, maybe a lot.
— Writing.
— Planning and / or researching.
— Editing.
— Sending things to the beta.
— Posting!
— Relaxing, taking a break, etc.
— Other stuff-ing. Look at the comment.

And a silly question to start things off: Do you do hand exercises at your keyboard before (or after) writing?

It's time to sign up for the October WIP challenge!

Some people join the challenge midmonth, or comment on check-in posts without signing up, which is fine -- I'm glad there's a way for the challenge to be useful in a variety of ways.

But for those of you who find the commitment of signing up useful, please leave a comment with the below information.

Signups will be open until the end of September.



  • Level of challenge: 1 chapter, 1000 words, 1 fic finished, whatever you like
  • Fandom(s) involved: if you know at this point
  • What you're looking for from the challenge: this could be as vague or specific as you like: someone to be accountable to, someone to remind you to write, someone to bounce ideas off, etc.
  • What you could offer other participants yourself: ditto!
  • How people should contact you: DW message, e-mail, IM etc.
  • Time zone: useful for seeing who might be up for a writing session at a time convenient to you


Copypaste below:



I couldn't continue to run this challenge without assistance with the daily check-in posts. Many thanks to everyone who's helped with the check-ins before!

Please let me know if you'd be interested in helping out. A week per person would be ideal (I usually assign weeks running Sunday-Saturday just for consistency). I'm happy to help come up with suggestions for discussion topics (& Friday or Saturday is usually the general chat/snippet/beta-seeking etc. post).

(& if you've completed a fic through the challenge, don't forget our collection on AO3! If you need AO3 invites, let me know.)

Title: Kiss My Arse
Artist: anokaba
Media: Digital
Characters/Pairings: Harry Draco
Rating: NC17
Kinks/Themes Chosen: Analingus: Rimming
Other Warnings/Content: none
Artist's Notes: This is quite possibly my most favorite kink! I imagine in this scenario Harry says something sassy and Draco responds with "kiss my arse" and Harry just smiles and proceeds to do just that :)

Challenge 709: Snape's Library - The Monster Book of Monsters

Here's another book that requires no explanation. The big question is, would Severus be interested in owning it? Or is it another one he has on his shelf because, again, it's a book, so why not? However you see it, this week we discuss Snape and The Monster Book of Monsters.

[personal profile] shyfoxling
meme via [personal profile] lost_spook:

1) Make a list of fifteen characters first, and keep it to yourself for the moment.

2) Ask your f-list to post questions in the comments. For example: "One, nine, and fifteen are chosen by a prophecy to save the world from four. Do they succeed?", "Under what circumstances might five and fourteen fall in love?", "Which character on the list would you most want on your side in a zombie invasion?"

3) After your f-list has stopped asking questions, round them up and answer them using the fifteen characters you selected beforehand, then post them.


My list is, um, eclectic, so I can't guarantee great results. But wotthehell archy.

I’ve been making super slow progress on a fic synposis. I’m trying to lay out all of its pieces before I turn it into prose, but I wish I could get to the actual writing! How do you approach projects? Are you a plotter or a pantser?
