December is almost upon us and it's a busy month. Holidays, family, crazy amounts of shopping and cookie baking. How can we find time for writing?

It's my hope that this community will serve as a place for motivation and support. I'll be the first to admit that, while I love creating with words, I don't always get myself moving to get any done. Not good, especially with WIPs hanging out begging for completion.

What I'd like to do is have a weekly check-in here on Wednesdays. That way we can see how each week is progressing without having to worry about doing it on the weekends when we're all extra busy. This check-in can consist of anything - inspiration, a bit of writing to share that you need opinions on, or just a weekly gripe about why it's impossible to get any writing done.

So what do you say? Shall we band together and see what we can get done with a little encouragement and pom-pom waving? And possibly alcoholic beverages?

Edited to Add: This is members-only, so don't be a lurker - join the community and let's have some fun!

I have a question! Will this community's posts be locked to members only? I really loved that about WriSoMiFu.

Yay! Thank you SO MUCH for creating this comm--I was crushed to hear that WriSo was ending permanently, but also I'm typically relieved at the end of November when I don't feel obligated to try to comment every day. So weekly check-ins are AWESOME and you are GENIUS for thinking it up.

I mean, I say that, but I was also suffering separation anxiety and clinginess re: being able to hear from fellow MiFus every day. So. My feels, they are complex.

Yay! Actually committing to doing this all year! I was seriously getting separation anxiety. Also, if we lock the comm, since we're kinda small right now, we can probably have people bring more stuff, like fest stuff to workshop with us. That's the part I seriously like about wrisomifu.

I'm totally torn between yay! I don't have to comment daily and worrying if I will be movtivated enough without it, but we will see!

They will have to prise my lj from my cold dead hands (assuming that the lj stays alive), and November is an awful month for me (work!busy) so I'm in to try to do better next month and beyond...

To December!!!

How do I word processor? Where is the beer? Why is my coffee empty? How is a person supposed to work under these conditions?

I'm so glad you went ahead and made this comm! (I suspect [livejournal.com profile] wildpear will be very pleased too, especially since she's off gallivanting with her family and some mutual friends and has quite likely not been anywhere near a computer or seen the sad news that it's the last year of WriSo.)

I'll make a game effort at lurking less. Yes. That should be doable.

Thank you for doing this.

If you want to make it a "friends only" journal the way wrisomifu is it's easy to do.

On the profile page, click profile and then "settings." Click on the privacy tab. Now make the default security option at the top "friends only." Remember to save before closing and you should be set.

For this particular introduction post you might want to add that it's locked to members and then at the bottom of this entry window you can pick from the settings and make this one "public" so anybody visiting can see this one entry.

Erm... I hope this was easy to understand. :D

Thank you for creating this! November was absolutely horrific in every way throughout so I missed pretty much all of wriso this year and then found out it won't be coming back. ;__;

I look forward to taking part and sharing the joys and pains of writing with y'all in the weeks to come.

Whoo! Now, at last, there is a refuge for MiFus after the end of November! :D

For me, weekly checkins would be just about perfect. The month went by so fast for me this year that daily checkins were way too much to handle, but weekly sounds perfect. I shall be tracking this comm and try to stick my nose in here pretty often.

Hurray! *pours you a rum*
