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.

Oh well .. where to begin. My head is wrapped up in RL problems - namely in finding a new job since my company will throw me out at the end of the year. As the main provider of our family that threw me a bit off balance as you can guess - it's the main reason why I have been so absent lately.

I did some writing but not nearly enough since I sleep poorly from all the worrying that keeps sneaking up on me.

I desperately NEED to write the SGA santa I signed up for and the Winter in Hawaii thing, too. (Due end of the year)

And there is that other H five-0 story that kind of wants to be told, but I have leashed it because deadlines are deadlines.

These days I'm writing SGA, SPN, a tiny bit of MCU now and then and most recently H five-0. (You have to thank Bru for that, it's all her fault)

I hope to get my head sorted out and write a bit (and hopefully manage to snag a new job soon - those who know me have told me it was good riddance with the old one, but still) and I really do need to finish that santa. That's all I have planned for November and in my opinion, that's plenty already.

So, I can't promise to be here every day, but I'll do my best to put in an appearance whenever I can, okay?

Good luck with the job situation and the sleep too.

I often feel like 'not sleeping should be a way of freeing up time for writing' AND YET.

Thank you! I could use both - sleep and a new job.

Yeah, it's funny how that "I'm awake anyway so I should be able to write" thing never seems to work out, huh? Very annoying to be sure.

Let's hope for the best, shall we?

It sounds like you have plenty planned for November.

Good luck with finding a new job - and one which you enjoy doing too!

Feels like plenty to me, too. *sigh*

Thanks. I really could use a new job I can be happy at. The last few months have been so fucked up I've forgotten what that is like, really.

Don't act as if you MIND being blamed for having sucked me into H five-0 fandom. *fond look*

In any case, yes, I'll be much more relaxed and happy when I have a new job - I kind of need one desperately.

And just because the shoobies meet every day this month don't you think for one moment you will be excused from cheerleading and hand holding. You promised it to me when I signed up for the insanity that is the Winter in Hawaii thing ;)

New fandoms are terrifying!
