It’s November, Shoobies, and you know what that means: NaNoWriMo kicks off, winter challenges are going to start coming due, and here on the comm we’re ready for our second annual Miserable Fucks November Social!

So what’s all the fuss about, you might ask? Just this:

  • Daily check-ins: For the month of November we want your counts every day. But not just that, we want you! The mods and I have some interesting topics lined up for each and every day and we’d love for you to chime in even if you have no words at all.

  • Write at least 10 minutes every day: Whether you’re working on your NaNo or one of a thousand other projects, this is the month to move things along. Setting aside a daily block of writing time, even just ten minutes, is super helpful. Doesn’t matter what you’re writing – blog posts, personal journal entries, a list of all the reasons you hate writing – it’s all good!

  • Share your words: Fridays will still be Workshop days. Share your snippets, get some concrit, see what your fellow Shoobies are working on.

  • Let’s get motivated! Our main goal this month is to support each other in our writing endeavors. Cheer your fellow Shoobies on with words of encouragement, or offer a shoulder to cry on when the muse is being recalcitrant. The best thing about this community is how supportive we are of one another!

Since it’s the first day let’s do a Meet-and-Greet. Tell us a little about you – what your November goals are, what your writing headspace is at the moment (All the words? Snarling at anyone who gets too close to you? Gentle weeping?), and what fandoms you’re currently into, if any, or where your orig fic love lies.

Time to knuckle down and get serious, Shoobs! (Me especially!) Let the NoSo begin! ::clinks cocktail glass::

ETA: I've unlocked this post so that people who are considering joining the comm can get a taste for the fun and cheerleading we have here. This will be the only unlocked post.

Note from Management: I will unfortunately be at work for a chunk of the day today, in case anyone has questions or concerns. As soon as I get home, around 3:30 EST, I’ll hop on and see how everyone’s doing.

Can I come crawling back into the fold? I haven't written all year, pretty much, but in a moment of madness I signed up to Yuletide so I really have to write something before Christmas. Ten minutes of cursing and staring at the screen and sobbing per day sounds about the right amount. I can guarantee to be a super-miserable fuck when it comes to writing.

So my goal is very, very simple: write something. Preferably my Yuletide fic, but since I'm still reviewing canon right now that will have to wait a little bit longer, so there will have to be some kind of warm-up exercise. I guess I'll see what I feel like when I settle down for ten minutes of writing - which won't happen until the kids are in bed.

Fantastic to see you!!!

I've been scarcely writing all year, too. Lots of reading and telling myself it's 'filling the well', but it's time for me to do better! We shall be miserable fucks together!

I too have hardly written all year. Let us unite in renewing good writing habits! Or at least renew habits of making a token attempt to write and then whining about it a lot.
