There was a "describe your creative process in a gif" meme going around twitter last month -- what would your entry be? (Credit and/or describe the gifs if you can, but I'm not actually the gif police. If you can't use gifs, feel free to use text to describe Cher and Dee freaking out on the highway or quote a Kardashian or whatever.)

It's time to sign up for the August WIP challenge!

Some people join the challenge midmonth, or comment on check-in posts without signing up, which is fine -- I'm glad there's a way for the challenge to be useful in a variety of ways.

But for those of you who find the commitment of signing up useful, please leave a comment with the below information.

Signups will be open until the end of July.



  • Level of challenge: 1 chapter, 1000 words, 1 fic finished, whatever you like
  • Fandom(s) involved: if you know at this point
  • What you're looking for from the challenge: this could be as vague or specific as you like: someone to be accountable to, someone to remind you to write, someone to bounce ideas off, etc.
  • What you could offer other participants yourself: ditto!
  • How people should contact you: DW message, e-mail, IM etc.
  • Time zone: useful for seeing who might be up for a writing session at a time convenient to you


Copypaste below:



I couldn't continue to run this challenge without assistance with the daily check-in posts. Many thanks to everyone who's helped with the check-ins before!

Please let me know if you'd be interested in helping out. A week per person would be ideal (I usually assign weeks running Sunday-Saturday just for consistency). I'm happy to help come up with suggestions for discussion topics (& Friday or Saturday is usually the general chat/snippet/beta-seeking etc. post).

(& if you've completed a fic through the challenge, don't forget our collection on AO3! If you need AO3 invites, let me know.)

  •     I posted today!
  •     I'm taking a break

Looking forward, how are you planning to spend your weekend?

Wednesday Discussion - Errors, brought to us by the Fanfic Flamingo: Sometimes errors occur as we write that we miss until later, and then it's a huge burden to try to go back and repair the damage.  Does this happen to you?  How do you deal with it, and how do you prevent it?

Sunday Discussion (via Fanfic Flamingo) - Does your writing brain work overtime when it's next to impossible to write it all down?  What are some ways you deal with inspiration that comes in the night or while you are driving, or at some other time when you aren't in your usual writing place?
