Participating in NaNoWriMo this year? Fretting over your Yuletide assignment or some other fic exchange? Is your Muse wibbling over the prospect of actually producing words? Come and join ushobwri for our annual November Social (NoSo)! If you were ever a member of wrisomifu ("Write Something, Miserable Fuck!") in past years, before that comm closed, you know exactly what NoSo is about: a group of fellow writers checking in daily to talk about progress, to support each other, to admire, encourage, and talk about all the things that makes us tick as writers. Whether you're a MiFu/NoSo veteran or have never joined a writer's comm before, we heartily invite you to come join us now! The more the merrier - all writers, whether your goal for November is 3000 words a day or 30, are welcome.
Any questions? Just ask me! :-D
And if you don't currently have a writing project but want some inspiration, here are some comms recommended by the ever-amazing brumeier:
mini_wrimo can help make sure you get some writing in every day, with a 100 word daily minimum and daily check-ins. Sign-ups end on October 30th, so don’t wait!
fan_flashworks is a multi-fandom community that offers up a new themed challenge every ten days or thereabouts. You can fill the prompts with fic, art, macramé…whatever gets your creative juices flowing. Bonus: you can earn achievement badges!
comment_fic has daily prompts based on a different theme each day, Monday through Friday, with a free-for-all on Saturdays. No fills are too big or too small! (Spoiler: I will be hosting the week of October 23rd.)
fic_promptly also has daily prompts based on a different theme each day. New themes are put up Monday through Thursday, with a free-for-all on Fridays. You can leave prompts, fill prompts, or throw caution to the wind and do both!
story_works has the Stargate Atlantis A Day in the Life Challenge running until November 12th. No minimum word requirements! They also have multi-fandom challenges throughout the year, so join the community now. You don’t want to miss anything good!
whatif_au runs a multifandom monthly AU challenge. There are no deadlines or minimum requirements, just people who love AUs sharing fic and art and anything else they want to! Discussion posts go up every Saturday related to that month’s topic. (Spoiler: November will be a Magic AU, as voted by members.)
