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'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.

Ack! Yes . . . thank you so much for making this happen. I can't believe WriSo is over for good, I was comforting myself for my very MiFu final week with hopes of not travelling in November last year, and then I saw that last post and almost cried! It was only my first year! I loved it so much! I don't want to lose my new writing buddies!

I like the idea you mentioned, further up, of picking up the pace in November. Weekly check-ins are much more sustainable, but it's nice to have something to look forward to, and put big push on for, in November.

You too! *^^* (And I'm just starting to get used to seeing your username with the little LJ head beside it, instead of always the DW one. *g*)
