Let's Get Motivated!

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!

Yay, you're here! (You survived your gallivanting! I hear there were cupcakes!)

There were :) Kiddo even had the chocolate with vanilla. I went for carrot cake with cream cheese, because me. And I see Seanan received your offering ;)

(*g* I'm glad one of your DW comments was very obviously you, since you're not logged in.)

Om nom nom! Good choice, Pumpkin!

I've never had the carrot cake one, which I guess isn't surprising. Can't remember if [ profile] scruloose has ever had it, but I would think probably? I hope it was tasty!

Oh gosh, I wrote Seanan such a letter. *_* I did in fact wind up telling her it was just as well I was writing and not meeting her because I would probably have started crying. ^^; (I don't expect any sort of response, in large part because I didn't include any way to contact me directly. If she really wants to, she can message me on LJ--I did mention my username--but I don't get the impression she uses that feature, so I would be quite surprised.)

I have a draft*. A draft! With, like, an ending and three possible titles (none of which are great, but they exist). And there isn't even a whole lot of highlighted material for once. O_O

*On the "holy crap, Shaun is SUCH A BOY" current smut fic.

Eee . . . congratulations! And LOL on the DW thing, I am not very internet-savvy yet :)

*coughs* This does mean that we're probably coming up on the point where I send it to you and then can't look you in the eye for a little while. La?

(Although since it's December, at this point anything else I finish in the near future will be for Yuletide, so they'll take priority, and I will make hopeful eyes at you. ^^;)
