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!

Procrastination

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

I had a great time at WriSo (well, a great and miserable time) and I would totally love to join this! (Also, if you need people to take turns to post encouragement/check in posts, I'm also up for that :))

LJ is a challenge! What I was asking was if the posts would be invisible to anyone who is not a member of the community. I liked knowing that any random person who stumbled across the group from anywhere on the internet couldn't see what we were all talking about. I think to change the privacy setting of the group, you'd have to go into account settings and set the Default Entry Security to Friends (I think.) If you wanted to, and/or if you thought the group would prefer it. This is for (somewhat shaky) informational purposes only.

Pretty sure invite-only won't change everyone else's status, but I thiiiiink there should be a setting somewhere for 'members only viewing', or something? Like you can switch your journal to 'friends only'.

And <3 we'll muddle through!

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.
