Check-In Post #1

This is the place to leave a comment about how your work is progressing, if you've started it. It's also a place to talk about the fact that you haven't started your fanwork (which is probably most of us).

This is a place to cheer each other on, and to get a little motivation.

If you're still in need of a minion, leave a comment. Read the other comments to see if you can be a minion for someone else.

If you're doing some kind of other thing, like a network on Tumblr or a group watch of something Bandom-ish and you're open to more people joining, leave a comment.

Please keep this space positive and judgement free.

Oh, man.

BBB #1 - uh, I have an overall idea of what I'm writing, and I started thinking about the scenes I want to write, but...haven't actually put down any words.

BBB #2 - re-read what's written, am excited to write more, just haven't found/made the time to do so.

Also have been distracted by Bandom Bingo and a sudden proliferation of plot bunnies.

I'm still looking for people to sprint with, anytime between 5am UTC to 9am UTC (1am EST to 5am EST). If you need a time zone converter, this one is pretty good.

So the first BBB... Have just passed the minimum word count, thank God. I'm really, really hoping it's done soon.

The second one, I haven't even tried to start to edit. Like seriously, not at all. I mean thank God the first draft is already finished but seriously gotta edit sometime.

So Far, I'm going okay. My BBB's at 6.5k roughly and I know about 5-7 more scenes until the conflict gets intense. I just need to find the time between work to write. and HOPE this project doesn't fall through like most have in the past.

Well, I have an idea, so that has to count for something I guess.

But, my mam finally got out of hospital so spare time for writing may actually be in my future soon.

rosiedoes: (Mood: Apply Forehead)

[personal profile] rosiedoes 2017-03-18 02:49 pm (UTC)(link)
I'm doing okay - I've been really ill with a chest infection all week, so I haven't really been up to thinking clearly or writing much.

I do already have my fic's key points planned out and I've started writing - I've been musing on it for a while, and I've got lots of key way points sorted out in my head, as well as the ending and the twist, but what I'm really debating right now, is how soon after alien spaceships arrive and abduct 50-80% of the world's population, does the President make his address to the nation?

So, there's that.

I tend to sandbox my fics, rather than drafting and then re-drafting - I just write and re-write until it works - so I'm side-eyeing the deadline as kind of a weird point for me. My biggest problem with word count is knowing when to stop. It's not unusual for me to write 3-4k a day when I get a clear run at it, so I'm not concerned about that, just how much I could write if I had the time! :)

I hope everyone's doing okay - I see some of you are miles down the road already, which is awesome!

[personal profile] turps 2017-03-18 04:28 pm (UTC)(link)
I love these kinds of posts, simply because I get to read about things like your debate. Writers and their imaginations are amazing things.

I'm very impressed with the amounts you can write when you get the chance!

And finally, I hope you're feeling much better now.

I have characters (FOB GSF), tropes (werewolves, pining) and themes (found family, dumb teenage love, Taming The Monster Inside), but no actual plot. I haven't really decided who's a wolf, who's sleeping together, how the supernatural world is structured, or what time period this is taking place in. But I'm really into wolf boys, and band-as-pack, and scary monsters kneeling at the feet of their beloved humans. If I could just find the right character dynamics, I know everything would fall into place.

I'm mostly done with BBB#1 (well. The last third needs WORK but the skeleton's there) but kinda stuck on BBB#2. Hopefully I can break the block tomorrow when I have some time to write!

I have been having a SUPER great time with people from the friending meme on Twitter and Tumblr though <333 this is the most fun I've had in fandom since the halcyon days of Inception and Merlin.

[personal profile] lucifuge5 2017-03-19 04:07 am (UTC)(link)
I have managed to do a rough outline of what I want to write (figuring the A plot and the B plot.) Been doing some research as I'm writing outside of my usual genre. This story's on the urban fantasy level. Next up is not!ficcing a 1-2 page draft. THEN, I start writing the story proper (basically, by filling in the blanks.)

As per my guesstimation, I ~should~ reach the minimum word count before the rough draft is due. :)

[personal profile] falter 2017-03-19 03:34 pm (UTC)(link)
i've got 12k of notes. /o\ the part where i make it coherent is being a little challenging. also i am super hung up on a thing i'm trying to do with manipulating time, where i'm flashing forward two years but then trying to have a character remember what happened over that span (which was a LOT), and seriously i am just staring into space worrying about verb tenses, so i need to get over that, pronto.

i need to get into a writing routine and i'm resisting that in favor of playing candy crush like it's 2014 all over again.

happy to see that folks are doing so well!

Hahahah, the lure of Candy Crush is hella strong. #Imstillplayingittoo

Also, yes, establishing a writing routine, i.e. setting up a minimum word count x a specific time period, can help you buckle down that plot bunny once and for all.

I KNOW you can write this story, bb. :)

I have an idea for my story and now just need to come up with the idea for like 5000 different sorts of cakes *jazz hands*

All of which means I have three different spreadsheets, an idea of what I want the emotions to do, and am worried that it will collapse like a souffle or leave me with a soggy bottom...

Maybe you can do a v. soft outline. I know it feels daunting af, but whatever you plot isn't written in stone. Meaning that you can expand/play with the plot bunny to your heart's content.

I believe in you. :)
